I used to be able to store the popup in the garage all the time but need my car and truck in there now. Before a trip, I put it in the garage for a few days so I can open it and load it, etc. Rather than cover it and uncover it with a tarp each time I use it, I was thinking of just getting one of these Portable Canopies from Harbor Freight. A good tarp is almost $40-$50 and this thing is on sale now for only $110. Maybe I can just keep it under there now to open and close it to load it and stuff between trips so I don't have to move it in the garage. This will go next to my garage so one side will be protected from the elements. Maybe in the winter, I can hang a tarp from the other side and back to keep junk from blowing in. What do you think?
