New 10x8 greenhouse - Any views on Rhino greenhouses?

I have a 'natural' bit at the end of my 150ft garden that I'm going to clear and have a greenhouse put up.
The area faces south and is about 45ft square.
I was thinking of a Rhino Premuim 8x10

Anyone got any views on Rhino Greenhouses or other suggestions please?

    My Rhino has been very good. 11 years and no problems except the gutter is too narrow. That may have been rectified

    Cheers nut.
    I'm having the fences replaced in that area today, then having all the ground cleared in a few weeks and hopefully by June I'll have a nice new g/house and a shed to store all the cr*p

    I was thinking of not having a base and having the g/house direct on the soil, which Rhino say is fine. Are there any reasons not to have it direct on the soil?

    Once the g/h is anchored in I plan for 3ft paving around all sides

    If it has been a 'natural' bit for a while, please leave a hole for hedgehogs in your new fencing. 

    I have my Rhino set in a large concrete base (billion miles per hour winds), and it has not moved at all. I went through 3 greenhouses before the Rhino - I wish I had gone there first as it would have saved much money.

    I kind of wish I had been able to put it on soil, as watering would have been much easier, but then all the soil pests would have built up too and that would be a problem. I believe there is no reason why not, other than the pest build up - it is rare with a Rhino only because people usually buy them for the same reason as me, and if regular tornadoes (I kid you not - I have the tail end of one on camera) hit your garden, you need a big base to attach it to.
