Multispan vs gothic high tunnels

All things being equal, which are more resistant to strong wind gusts? I would guess the standalone gothic type, but I'm not totally sure.

what does multispan mean? and a lot of wind resistance depends on build quality.

Gothic's advantage over regular Quonset/hoop style is for snow load. It will slide off faster off of a gothic. I don't think there is any difference for wind.
