Default cheap portable garages

So the house I rent right now has a 1 car garage. It is full of stuff right now, but once it is empty I was going to let the GF park in it, because I always leave for work first and my driveway is only 1 car wide. So I was thinking about one of those tent like garages for my car. I want one that unzips on both sides, so that I can unzip both sides, that way I can just back out, and then she can just back out through it when she leaves for work.

Can anyone recommend me one.

Because I hate washing the car only to have dew and **** all over it the next morning. I have a pine tree above the driveway and a backyard full of trees that shed their leaves all over my car. Would like something to store it in.

I could do that I guess. As long as it is waterproof. Last time I had a car cover it was water resistant and dew would always get through it and make a mess.

Would it be that much more expensive to put in a second garage? Heck a shed with a manual door would work, and work better then those plastic jobs. So would a car port, and you could build it in an afternoon.

Also, check your local oontz regulations and bylaws to see if you are going to have to take whatever you put up down when someone gets pissy about it.

Read the first post. I RENT. Why on earth would I spend money to put in a second garage on a house I don't own?

Sometimes you can get discounts on rent if you do?
