Careful though, the wolf just might be on the zoning board!
I built mine like that for the same reasons. We are well sheltered from wind, and it is the snow load and rain I do not want on the Scamp. My shelter is 21' x 12'. All sides are open, so with any wind blowing the ends of the 19footer get wet and snow dusted, but the bulk is perfectly dry. I could theoretically pick it up with a big truck and move it somewhere else. Also there is no permanent utility connection.

It's too short for Ten Forward by about 6" and I need to get it lifted to get my wonderful trailer home. No one wants to do the work... Plan Ahead!
I found a contractor who has done work for me before who will slide 3 6x6's under the sides and raise it about 16 inches. I don't know if you can find anyone out there to do that, but it can be done.
