Menards Roundtop All-Weather shelters?

5 posts in this topic

They are the round, fabric style storage shelter..

I was thinking about buying one for my boat storage (12'x24'). Anyone have experience with them? Thoughts on them?

Thanks in advance.

Ripstick from the Duluth forum just got 1 like it if not that exact one. It looks like a nice outfit. Post on the Duluth Forum and ask him.

Also Shamrock is giving 1 away in the free forum thats 12 by 24 and in ok shape. Worth a trip if you can make it to Vermilion.

Last year we put up three of them here in Grand Portage for friends to store boats in winter and snowmobiles in summer. They have held up very well and really done the job. We get alot of high winds off the lake and have had no issues. Two more people bought them this season after the three originals passed the test.

Don't go cheap on the anchoring.

I have two.

One at home in the woods that has held up really nice. The one at the lake gets alot of direct sun and it is taking its toll on the fabric.

Make sure you get some kind of mouse control for the shelter. They will migrate there in the winter.

I would buy another one when needed.

      I've been going to the Landing regularly for the past 10+ years. I think that ownership has changed due to bad management more than anything. When Jack bought the place again, it was hopping because he gave everyone what they wanted...a fun place with good value. That was only four or five years ago. That in itself proves that the cost of entry doesn't preclude reasonable prices. I've had one interaction with the new owners, or more specifically one of them. He was extremely nice and help me out when I was in a bind. I'll still go there for a beer or two but in general don't frequent fancy places because I save my money for other things in life.   I think why people complain is because it is the only option on the west end of the lake. There are off-lake options like the Crescent but it's not on the water. With The Landing it's like someone took something away from the lake. I believe that is the emotion that is being tapped. If there were three on-lake options on the west end of the lake and one went fancy, then probably no problem. That's my take.   One would hope that local economics would guide decisions at such a place. If the majority of customers want X, you provide X. The new owners have been providing Y for a while now and don't seem to mind if that hits them in the wallet. That's their choice and I'm fine with it. I just won't eat there often if at all because it's not what I want when on the lake.

      From what I understand the walleye population is still a little high for the long term health of the Red Lakes.   A perfect example of that is that Buddy just got across that pressure ridge Sunday so Hillman's road is just now getting to their normal fishing areas. Awesome pictures once a cop. I'm getting old but I can remember when if there were 10 of us fishing on Center Bar it was too crowded.   Since those pictures were taken both Hillman's and Beacons have extended out another 2 miles.

      I dont think you will have trouble. Just be careful. There are a million trucks driving all over the place now

      Big Pine as of 1/15 had 16" of ice on the north side.  Only drilled 5 holes and all were around 16" according to my ice scoop.  Just placed fish house out there for the nephew and called it good.  Sorry no fishing report.
