We are considering to buy this carport and depending on what we decide with transportation, we may park our Highlander inside on Playa. If we secure it with extra rebar stakes, would it hold up? Any other issues or modifications that we should expect or make?
Wife here, so we ended up buying this carport in case we don't come up with a better solution. This thing is HEAVY, took two large men to load it into my car. I hope that we can break it up in pieces for transport.
It's165lbs with box/150lbs naked but feels like a ton.
It's nice to carry all packed up neat and everything in the box, but I'd break it out beforehand. There's a lot of paper moop that will be tough to deal with when it's windy. You can also strap the poles into a couple of groups to make the weight more manageable.
