Clearview Round Top Canopy, 12 x 16 x 8-ft
Good for a small car
My wife's Honda Fit has enough room length wise, but the doors cannot open all the way. I am going to have to wrap the support bars to protect the paint on the car doors. Make sure you buy a pack of extra anchors when you buy the kit otherwise you'll be making another trip to the store as these extra anchors are necessary. We are only using one door and I had to run straps across the back door to keep it from flexing in the wind and scratching the paint on the car. Took me close to 10 hours to put this together by myself.

Way too small
Bought this to replace a damaged shelter with the same advertised dimensions but this is much narrower than the peaked roof model being replaced. 12 foot width is unrealistic, more like 10 feet of usable width. Also the door height is less than advertised. Assembly was delayed due to some incorrect parts in the box. Customer service was helpful and sent correct replacements via courier.
Parked a small car inside and can't open the doors all the way.

I bought this shelter on sale and recruited my son and a friend to help put it up. Two seniors (mostly supervising) and the two young men put this up in about 31/2 hours (with breaks, it was hot). This shelter was easy to erect and all the predrilled holes lined up perfectly. The racheting system and the tie downs for the inside walls make it very sturdy. Both doors work very well, although I probably won't be using the back door. If you are a little skeptical about the windows, the side support poles pass about an eighth of the way down and you can hang little curtains on it. I've added a pic so you can see how nice it looks. I love the idea of the round top, hopefully sheds the snow and ice. I can't rate it for durability yet as I just put it up yesterday, but will update later
