I bought mine from a company in CT called "Cover-It". Heavy
duty vinyl with aluminum, poles. It's great - you can buy any
size you want in virtually colour.

It is 100% dry and has never leaked but I live in humid
New Jersey and it's like a sauna in summer, especially first
thing in the morning - and its get REALLY hot. On mine you
can't remove the sides but it does have flaps all along the
bottom, which don't really do anything.

Would I store a car in it? No way. I tried last winter and when
I took the car out in spring, every thing in the engine compartment
which was not pained had a coating of rust. I think if you could
ventilate it - it would work fine.
