Soft Sided Shelters 3

Soft-sided shelters service a variety of vehicle sizes and types, while providing full unimpeded access to the interior of the trailer. Durable foam side frames are mounted to double kiln dried lumber at the wall with removable side curtains attached to high-impact polypropylene on the inside of foam pads at the face. Shelters come standard with a structurally self-supported head canopy that is translucent and raked for drainage. The soft sides on the shelter prevent damage from any off center trailers. Bottom draft pads are standard.
