Pop-up canopies???

9 posts in this topic

I have an old canopy and would like to upgrade to a "pop-up". I could use it for riding and at the BMX track, when my boy races.

What are you guys using? I heard Sams Club has the EZ-Up for about $125????

Thanks

Hey Bill-

Let me know if you want to sell you're old pop up canopy. I need something for camping :)

Thanks, Mike C

Bill,

I picked up a 10x10 Quick Shade made by Variflex and have no complaints. It was about the same cost as the EZ-Up and I really like the fact that the top braces are rigid and are not like the tent pole type. They also have plenty of accessories available such as side panels and screens. I would buy another one. Check em out.

I bought a EZ-Up from Sams club for $199. It is 10' x 10' and come with three velcro on walls, four stakes to keep it put and a very nice carry bag that has wheels on it.

It take longer to take out of the bag than it does to set-up. I would highly recommened one.

No doubt! Why couldnt they put 1 extra inch slack in the bag! Im still trying to get the bag on when everyone else is ready to go.

Bill,

I got one from Lowes for $179.00. It works great, but don't leave it alone when it's raining. Mine filled up with water (where the material "sags") and colapsed the frame. I replaced all the bolts (all bent) and fixed the "rods" (also bent) and it worked fine this weekend at Budds Creek.

Happy hunting,

Jeff

Jeff,

For another $20, you could have gotten one with a steep pitch on the roof, carry case w/wheels, stakes and the three walls.

My homemade deal kept us dry at the Morganton GNCC but, I was tired of setting it up.

I have an EZ-UP Dome model 8 x 12? for

roadracing. About $200 retail.

Its pretty easy to go up. Ez to come

down too. Not for use near rain or

wind. In the first year of use I had

to repair it every time I used it.

Welded the broken scissors braces, taped

the splintered poles, the torn canopy.

It does invert when it rains and when the

wind blows.

The more expensive models are better,

but the other brand with the braced poles

seems to hold up better.
