Portable garage

I was thinking about renting some winter storage for my Scamp with a roof A/C. I have seen some portable garages around for cars. I am wondering if anyone has one to store their camper in? I'd need one with a higher roof because of my roof A/C. I have room to do this in my yard. This is what I am talking about.
Round Style Shelter 13 x 28 x 10 Gray Cover - Shelterlogic 90233 - Instant Garages - Camping World

If you have one what brand, model?
One thing I been told is to get the round top so snow slides off easier. Make sense to me.

At one time we had three 10' x 20' Shelter Logic canopies without side walls, but they were all in the $125-$150 range. Quality was fine, but there was a warning about their ability to support more than 1" of snow load. I'd check that out first and then look at almost anyplace beside Camping World. They are almost always the "High Pricd Leader"

Bob Costco sells a 10x20 with sides for around $20000.

Two of ours got picked up, anchors and all, in a wind microburst(?). Didn't hurt any of the three trailers under them, but did a lot of damage to the tile roof on the way out. Took down the third one as a precaution.

Beside that $20,000 at COSTCO is a lot for another one, that's about the same as 1,878 4 lb cans of CVafe D' Vita Mocha, almost a 2 year supply.....

Before you buy, check with your city to see if they are allowed. My city has outlawed these sort of temporary structures.

I have 2 neighbors who had similar tarp structures .both lost them last winter from snow load . When they returned from trips down South last winter .both had collapsed and damaged the contents of the structure and destroyed the structure itself. I am looking at the same style of structure only with a heavier steel frame and a sheet steel roof . Cost is about double versus the tarp covered style but they seem to hold up better to snow load and wind
