As you may have seen in my other post, I'm doing some major work on my Class C. I don't have a big enough garage to house it and need to get it under some sort of cover so I can work on it and be out of the elements somewhat. I do have an RV cover, but it needs to come off to work on the roof.

I've seen several temporary 'garages' online and at Harbor Freight. Anyone have any experience with those? I'm wondering if they would be tall enough to still allow me to work on the roof and if they would hold up to the weather and our Kansas winds.

Harbor freight portable garages are low ceiling, in order for me to get a full size pick up inside I needed to lift the 2 door side supports up about a foot or so to get the truck inside, then lower the front supports back to keep the wind from picking it up like a para sail. I would imagine you could build a lower base to set the portable garage on, but the H/F portable garage isn't tall enough. Another idea is those pop up 10x10 canopies with leg extensions might work for you. I use those when I work on my 5th wheel. Hope this helps you out. Good luck.
