Hello can you tell me where you got your car tent for lack of a better word. I have been working over the road the last 3 years and all of my cars where outside under a car cover and I was not happy. They took a beating that sure would help. Does it have a floor? Does it leak at all when it rains? And does it retain moisture as water evaporates after a rain. Those would be my concerns.... Can't wait to look into this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Any of the national home improvement chain stores like Home Depot and Lowe's have them. I don't know where you're from, but where I live we have a place called Menard's. That's where I got it. No, it doesn't leak, and the car doesn't even have condensation on it in the morning. It doesn't seem to retain any moisture, but I can't be totally sure of that. It doesn't have a floor, but I cut up a piece of plywood so that all four wheels are off the ground.

Thanks for the info Dan! You can disregard the p.m. I sent you. Say I live North of Medford, WI I have been to Tomahawk many times when I was younger. Menards would be great if they still have them. Did you get it in Wausau, WI or what store did you go to? It is about an hour drive for me to any of the bigger towns with any big chain stores... I hope they still have them...

Thanks....

First of all, I live in Lake Tomahawk. Tomahawk is 30 miles south of here. I got mine at Menard's in Rhinelander, but I'm sure they would have them at all the Menard's stores. The brand name is Roundtop, and it's called garage-in-a-box.

Harbor Freight has a decent tarp-garage, order by mail, many times they pay the shipping if an order is over a hundred bucks. Replacement tarps can be had for around 40 bucks. I use the tarp-garage with a car cover, on concrete, no problems so far.
