Dog House for Generator. (PVC PIPE/ PLASTIC TARP /VELCRO)

I was thinking out a shelter for my generator made of light pvc pipe that can easily set up/break down. Then use one of those blue plastic woven tarps cut to size to wrap around the pvc "table" shelter and secure to the PVC frame with Velcro. It should be light, effective, and easily broken down and stored.... Thoughts?

I thought of doing the same thing, but realized it isn't worth the effort. I just use one of the blue tarps, run the front wheels on one end and wrap the rest around the unit and use bricks to hold it in place.

I built mine out of plywood and some 4x4's embedded into the ground. I can lock the generator inside it when not in use and it isn't going anywhere.

It's also ready any time I need it.
