Hi friends I live in my Coleman lantern 32 ft full time and need a storage shed to go with it. Something big enough to put a freezer in. I may move to a different state in about 6 months so it needs to be easily disassembled. I tried a large fabric one but the wind ripped it apart. I'm thinking something plastic that doesn't need a plywood base just for ease of moving.

Any advice appreciated.

Your best bet may be an enclosed trailer to store things in then it can be towed to any site or state you prefer.


My feet are fine as long as they are traveling.

Thanks guys. I went to look at Rubbermaid and it also showed me a galvanized metal shed for half the price. Done deal.

In my experience rubber sheds aren’t built for disassembling, moving and reassembling.

We have a 7x7 Rubbermaid Roughneck shed at our seasonal site. We have the one pictured on the home page. Our Destination Trailer has no outside storage, except under the bed. That storage is large, but only accessible by a small door.

It's not the most portable; the box it comes in will fill a standard bed of a pickup, but it can be put together in a couple hours (I put mine together by myself) and taken down even quicker. We have ours on a platform, but as long as the ground is flat and level it will work on bare ground. Doesn't require anything more than normal hand tools. Rubbermaid does make smaller versions that would be more portable and still be large enough for a freezer.

I got to looking at the metal one and the assembly is too intense. The rubbermaids are a little pricey but much easier to assemble and disassemble. Guess that's the winner.

We went with a small enclosed utility trailer.

Found it on craigslist, so no more expensive than a shed but when we move, it's easy to just hook it up and pull it to the new location.

That's a great idea. I didn't think about looking on craigslist.
