The Best Sheds for Housing Large Vehicles

Investing in a shed for your large vehicle, whether it’s a boat or a caravan, comes with a whole host of benefits. While also adding value to your home and property, finding a good quality shed that can securely protect and store your large vehicle can help defend them from the sometimes-volatile Australian elements.You might be tempted to simply store your boat or caravan in your front or backyard, having given up on finding a shed to suit your range of needs. But, it’s important to invest in a good quality shed as it helps to prevent moisture from accumulating in hidden areas of your vehicle, ensuring that they stay in a good condition for longer, while making you spend less time and money on maintenance.

So, how do you know where to begin your search for the ideal shed? We’ve summarised the best shed types that can house your large vehicles, to help make the decision a little easier for you.


Barns are becoming increasingly popular in Australia as it adds an old-world charm to any property, while also offering excess storage and clearance for boats, caravans and 4wds. Barns also have a higher centre section which allows for better clearance for taller boats, or raised vehicles with roof racks. The great thing about barns, whether you’re interested in an American style or Quaker style, is they can become double storey!


A garaport is a great option when it comes to storing multiple vehicles of different sizes as they give you the option of having a shed and a carport all in one. With a garaports, you have the option of having a drive through carport into the shed, or having the carport on the side, which makes it easier to securely store your boat and caravan, as well as your car.

With garaports, you can choose from a single, double or triple garage space, and you can customise it depending on the size of your property or vehicles. When it comes to choosing the size of your garaports, it’s also important to keep in mind that you get a roller shutter door with at least 3 metres clearance, or higher if you have a tall boat or caravan.

Roofing Makes a Difference

Whether you live in a tropical climate or along the south-east coast of Australia, you’ll understand that your storage shed should have proper roofing. A skillion roof is an affordable, easily constructed and reliable roof, and because of its single significantly angled surface offers proper drainage. With a skillion roof paired with a barn or garaport, you can rest easy knowing that your large vehicle is safely protected from the outside elements coming in.
