The round version of this shelter states it has a triple layer waterproof cover, is this version waterproof as well?

Answer:This shelter cover is indeed waterproof. It features a Triple-layer polyethylene cover.

I currently have a ShelterLogic 20 x 12 x 8 portable garage. It is dark brown in color. I live in New Hampshire and I have had it setup and have taken it down for the last 2 years. I am thinking of buying the 10x15x8 shelter for my small vehicle. I am concerned that this auto shelter 1015 will not withstand the New England weather as compared to my brown shelter. Should I be concerned, Is there a different cover rating or are they the same? Do you have thicker covers?
By Dawn H. on July 30, 2012
Answer:Since we are unfamiliar with the canopy you currently have we would be unable to compare them. We have only one cover thickness available. It is designed as temporary shelter. The custom fabric cover offers storage and protection from damage caused by sun, light rain, tree sap, animal/bird excrement
and light snow.

Can you leave the rear panel off of this portable garage?
By Dawn H. on August 13, 2012

I only have 9' 6" in my carport. Will the canopy work within my carport dimensions?
By Kevin E. on September 18, 2013
Sadly, yes, we are limited to these dimensions for this AutoShelter. It cannot be altered or custom ordered. However, our 71873
may be more appropriate for your space.

By Scott from Carl Junction , Missouri on October 2, 2013
What is the life span of the cover if it is used year round? Will it handle a Missouri winter?
By Collin C. on October 2, 2013
Answer:Realistic life expectancy for the cover of this product is 4 to 5 years. Keeping the cover as tightly secured as possible, to prevent rub through and stretching, will help to prolong its life.

Answer:This model only comes in tan.
By Mike from NJ on November 5, 2013
I have a classic mini cooper (the one made before BMW started making them). The car is only 10'2" long and about 5' wide. When my wife and I go to Florida for the winter, I would like a place to store the car securely to protect it from rain and wind and sun damage. I was considering the ShelterLogic AutoShelter 1015. But I notice that it is out of stock. Is there anything else you would recommend? It's only going to be assembled and used from January through March and then taken down each year. Also, what tools are needed? How much does it weigh? How long would it take two people to assemble it? Also, we would be setting this up in an RV resort in Florida. I will have to check with the park people to see if they would allow such a structure.
By Emily on November 5, 2013
We would be glad to help you with a carport. I would suggest a shelter by Rhino Shelter. This may be larger than what you are looking for but it would be a good shelter to stand up to the elements. I do not have a wind rating or snow load for this unit. Our manufacturers always recommend that the snow will not be allowed to accumulate and cause damage. They suggest that you knock off the snow from over night accumulation. Please use the link below to view the shelter and please let us know if you have any further questions.

What is the difference between the gable style roof shelter and the round roof shelter? Is one stronger, or able to shed snow better?
By Emily on November 12, 2013
Answer:The Gable style is not as durable of a frame as the round style. The fabric on both styles is a 9 oz polyethylene cover. The snow on the round shelter would fall off easier than on the gable style. The snow would still need to be knocked off both units to avoid any possible damage.
By Natalie from Wayland, MA on December 17, 2013
Does this open in the back? Do you have any that do?
By Emily on December 17, 2013
By Fiachra from San Francisco, CA on December 29, 2013
I am considering creating an exercise space in my back yard. The back yard is concrete. I live in San Francisco. I want something that can be up year round. I want to put soft tile flooring down also. Is this even possible? The weather here, while mild, is foggy and damp at night. Can you advise?
By Emily on December 30, 2013
Yes, this unit can be used to set up on asphalt. You would need to use 30" auger anchor to attach the shelter to the ground. Please use the link below to view the anchors you would need.

Can I get this with 2 of the zippered end doors?
By Brennan W. on March 26, 2014
Answer:I apologize, but this portable garage only offers one zippered door with a solid wall in the back.
By Christine from NJ on June 18, 2014
How much snow can this support?
By Dawn H. - eCanopy Product Specialist on June 18, 2014
This garage does not have a snow load rating. The snow would have to be removed from the top with a long handled broom with soft bristles. The only shelters we carry that have snow load ratings are the ShelterTube
shelters, which have a snow load rating of 43 pounds per square foot when assembled correctly.
These are available in sizes of 12 x 20 x 11, 12 x 25 x 11 and 12 x 30 x 11 and are available in both green and gray.
By Jim from Long Island, NY on June 20, 2014
Answer:Not 26 inches at one time. Our ShelterLogic held up great through two hurricanes and several snow storms of 6-10 inches but could not take the 26 inches in one storm. With our new one I make sure I get to it and remove the snow from the roof before it collects too much. This is easily done from the inside by tapping the roof with a broom.
By Dana from Seattle, WA on June 20, 2014
Answer:I've never let the snow build up on it, since it doesn't have a snow rating. I suggest if you live in "snowy" area, buy the round one. Last winter, I used a fitted car cover and this shelter - not one drop of moisture hit my car all winter. It held up to 40+ mile an hour wind too.
By Butch from Western MD on June 20, 2014
Answer:Had approximately six inches of wet snow and the tarp survived. I did remove the snow within 24 hours because the tarp did sag between the bows. I'm satisfied with the product.
By Gail from Jupiter, FL on June 23, 2014
Answer:I can't answer the snow question, because I am in Florida. However, I will say that it is very sturdy as we have these every day tropical monsoons that produce heavy rain, wind, and lightning and it always stays put!
By David from Camano Island, WA on August 16, 2014
Does this shelter have a rear door or roll up panel?
By Dawn H. - eCanopy Product Specialist on August 18, 2014
Answer:It has a solid rear panel. It does not have provisions for operating as a door.
By Bill from Covington, GA on October 10, 2014
Could this garage be anchored to a concrete pad? Also, do the support legs have a hole in them that a bolt could go through and into the concrete?
By Emily - eCanopy Product Specialist on October 13, 2014
By Patricia from TN on October 13, 2014
Answer:There are holes in the support legs but they are for the canopy strap hooks. You would have to drill extra holes to put the anchors through.
By Tauna from Nampa, ID on October 13, 2014
Answer:Yes. We have ours bolted to a cement pad and it works very well. There are holes in the support legs to do this.
By Brandon from Gilmanton, NH on October 14, 2014
Answer:Yes, you could anchor the legs into a concrete pad. There are holes in all four corner legs and 3 holes on each middle leg.
By Gary from Seattle, WA on October 16, 2014
Answer:Yes you can. I anchored mine to my concrete pad on the side of my garage with 3/8" Hilti bolts.
By Henry from Big Pine Key, FL on October 21, 2014
Does this unit come with a front and rear door panel?
By Emily - eCanopy Product Specialist on October 21, 2014
By Cliff from Visalia, CA on October 31, 2014
Does this unit have a means to close and lock the entrance? Do you carry portable two car garages?
By Emily - eCanopy Product Specialist on October 31, 2014
By Loretta from Lake Worth, FL on June 21, 2015
Does this ShelterLogic Autoshelter 1015 portable garage come with a cover that pulls down over the entrance?
By Brennan W. - eCanopy Product Specialist on June 22, 2015
Answer:Yes, the front of this shelter has a zip-up door.
By Eric from Concord, NH on June 22, 2015
Answer:There are covers on the front and back that zip all the way up or down. I can roll the door up or leave it down but it does have front and rear zip up doors. Very nice for storage. I would buy another one.
By John from Hudson, OH on June 22, 2015
Answer:Yes, there is a zippered door.
By Paul from Fairplay, CO on June 22, 2015
Answer:Yes and It zips on 2 sides. I use the shelter store my UTV, log splitter, and various other items. It is perfect for keeping valuable equipment out of the weather.
By Dave from Asheville, NC on June 22, 2015
Answer:It comes with separate front and back panels that go on first over the metal frame, then the full cover is put in place, overlapping the ends somewhat. The back panel is solid, but the front panel has a zippered door panel that rolls up and is secured at the top for easy access. I just finished putting mine together, and it's a great unit. It does take time to put together and get adjusted, but once it's done, it's very solid.
By Chris from San Diego, CA on June 22, 2015
Answer:Yes, the front cover is heavy duty zippered on both sides and has loops at the top to secure when rolled up. Works great!
By Peggy from TX on June 23, 2015
Answer:Yes, both ends are covered and one has a zipper opening. Make sure you secure it tightly to your ground anchors.
By Bill from Elberon, VA on June 23, 2015
Answer:Yes. Part of the kit includes a front wall with a covered opening zippered on both sides that rolls up to be held in place with bungees. If you install this wall, which comes with the kit, it does reduce the size of the entry somewhat. I put my 8 foot wide camper trailer in mine. It is a tight fit going in but the camper does fit. The entry height is also reduced to between 6 and 7 feet. I like mine. I did add extra screw in anchors to have one on each leg to help when high winds occur.
By Dick from Milton, Vermont on June 23, 2015
Answer:You can leave the front and back open or close them. The front at least has zippers. I have used mine in Vermont for a year. It seems to be holding up well although I clean the snow off the top. In the winter I just leave the front down with closing the zippers and just drive through the flap..
By Dan from Lafayette, IN on June 30, 2015
Answer:Yes, it has a zippered door on one end. I've had mine for a little under a year and it has served me well. The zipper on the entrance is good quality and should hold up for a long time. Good bang for your buck.
By Ken from Westminister, MD on September 23, 2015

By Brennan W. - eCanopy Product Specialist on September 23, 2015
Answer:Per the manufacturer, snow needs to be removed from the unit as soon as it accumulates on the shelter.
By Jim from NY on September 23, 2015
How does this ShelterLogic AutoShelter 1015 portable garage with tan cover do on an inclined driveway?
By Brennan W. - eCanopy Product Specialist on September 23, 2015
Answer:The manufacturer recommends that the shelter be installed on as flat and level a surface as possible, so it is not advisable that this be set up on an incline.
By Carol from WI on November 28, 2015
Does this ShelterLogic AutoShelter 1015 come with the hardware to set it up? Do you have to buy the ratchet straps separately?

Answer:The ShelterLogic AutoShelter 1015 Portable Garage with Tan Cover - 10 Foot x 15 Foot x 8 Foot does come with (8) ratchet straps and will include all components necessary to complete the set up.
By Larry from FL on November 30, 2015
Answer:I purchased two of these exact shelters earlier this year and every thing you need for assembly and also ratchet straps are included. very good shelter.
By Larry from Hot Springs, AR on December 1, 2015
Answer:Everything is as advertised. I recommend an inventory of all parts before beginning set up.
By Jim from Wartburg, TN on December 3, 2015
Answer:All needed items are enclosed with package. You will need a hammer for the braces to be secured. Two people would be ideal, but one person can put this shelter up.
By Alfred from Middletown, RI on August 10, 2016
How wind resistant is your product?
By Brennan W. - eCanopy Product Specialist on August 10, 2016
Answer:While the garage does not have a wind rating, it is constructed to stand up to most conditions. It has a 1 3/8" diameter steel frame with four ribs and a triple-layer polyethylene cover. If extremely high winds are in your forecast, it is recommended that you remove the cover.
By Garth from Ocean coast of WA on February 19, 2016
Is there a "door" or cover to the open end? What is the wind limit?
Is the frame fastened to the ground? Is there ground penetration involved? Can it be used in a salty air areas?
By Will M. - eCanopy Product Specialist on February 19, 2016
This portable garage has a double-zippered front door and is heavily treated to prevent corrosion, however, the warranty for this product is 1 year and this is not a wind-rated canopy. The manufacturer recommends removing the cover in the event of high winds. The tent will need to be anchored down and this process is described on page 6 of the installation manual.
By Gary from PA on June 8, 2016
Does the Autoshelter 1015 come with a roll up door or must you buy that separately?
