I think I've decided this is the route I'm going to go. My only concern is that it is going to be put up next to a retaining wall. Snow between the retaining wall and the garage could be an issue so I'll have to be sure to shovel it out if necessary. At the end of the day, if the thing only lasts one year and I have to buy a new one it was cheaper than paying for storage. But you can get replacement tarps so that's huge.
