How did your DCF shelter age (and expire)?

We’ve all seen pictures and heard stories about how DCF shelters have met their maker due to wind or hail or other extreme weather. Everything has a lifespan and most commonly, like one’s eyesight, the demise of a piece of gear involves a slow gradual decline that is often unnoticed until the failure. As the owner of an 8 year old Duplex, I am interested in stories of DCF shelter expiration due to time and normal use.
So how did your DCF shelter get retired? What was/were the cause(s)? Did you see the final failure coming and, perhaps most importantly, would you recognize it again if you saw it?
