Top customer reviews
We shopped around, called around and decided to get the Wenzel's canopy tent at the very last minute. One thing we were worried about with these tents are some of the reviews with other brands concerning the durability and being able to take the weather not-so-well.
When we receive the item it came in a 4' box; weighed a bit but an adult can easily carry the box. It comes in a very sturdy bag that's similar to a backpack material with a nice handle, two straps that clips together and rolling wheels to safely transport the tent.
- When folded and placed in the heavy duty bag I measured 48" tall and 8" around for width and height
- The tent measures 10'x10' and can easily have someone 6' walk underneath without a problem while providing plenty of head room
What's in the transporting bag:
- Aluminum frame in one piece ready to be deployed (I'm assuming powder coated with clear coat)
- Opaque white canvas with velcro's in four corners and also each on the middle (explained further later)
- Four 10" aluminum stakes with a diameter of 1/4" and can be hammered down
- Four pin stakes to hold the guy ropes in place
- Small mesh bag to be installed inside the canopy to hold few small items
- Spread the aluminum frame about half way but don't raise the legs just yet
- Throw the white canvas over and use the velcros on each corner to secure it to the aluminum frame
- Then expand the frame fully before the locking mechanism on top snaps into place
- Then raise the leg height by simply putting you foot on the area where the stakes will go in, push the plastic button near the base and pull it up until it snaps into place (it does have few settings you can adjust to)
- You can then use the velcro's attached in the middle of the canvas on all four sides to secure the canvas
- If you on a grass/dirt or at the beach, insert the stakes in each corner into the pre-drilled holes
- Each corner of the canvas also has a rope to secure the tent further with the other four stakes
How it looks:
We didn't use the stakes as we were using this on a parking lot and didn't have a way to secure but it was very sturdy and didn't have to worry at all about it blowing away or bending/breaking. Also it rained on us the same day we got it but the canvas had kept us nice and dry. This is where the middle strap will also be effective as if the velcro's weren't secured all the way you'll have some water collecting near the edge of the sides and can dump on you (found it the hard way!).
During mid-day with the sun pounding us, it did give us a nice shade with plenty of light coming in. Though some may want to consider darker colored canvas for better shade, we didn't feel it was all that hot at 85°F or so outside. The tent is plenty high where I'm about 5'10" and didn't need to bend or tilt my head to get underneath the tent. 10'x10' may seem big but in an event using a table it does take up the room pretty quickly.
Putting it away:
Just as easy if not easier! We left the canvas on, released the height adjusting mechanism then the ones on upper corners and folded the tent in one snap. Disassembling can be easily done with one person. (It's the initial stretching out the tent that two people will definitely come in handy but still do-able by yourself) Once it's folded, put it in the canvas bag, pull up the zipper and two straps that snap together and haul it away! It was a two-minute job.
We are very pleased; similar models were selling for $200+ locally and got an amazing deal on Amazon. We'll be using this in our backyard and any time we have an event if not when we go camping. Transporting this makes it so much easier with the wheels and large padded handle one adult can easily drag around. It should fit most vehicles comfortably.
I was very impressed with the quality. Solid steel, very few rivets, mostly hex bolts with airplane nuts. One person can put it up and take it down, but it's much easier if you have two or more to expand and contract the frame - especially if there's any wind.
Here is my current beach system after trial and error but I think we got a great system going here.

I went with the 3/16".

Graintex DB1456 2.0 Lb Dead Blow Mallet
I mainly carry the canopy on my back but the case has 2 wheels. To carry the cooler, beach chairs and such, I upgraded to the 200 lbs Magna cart for the bigger wheels. I use these Magna Carts as they have a small footprint when you collapse them so there is not so much bulk when traveling to and from the beach.

And the bungee cords I use with the Magna Cart.

So, the above is my current beach system and it works flawlessly. I have no issues with the stakes and I use the rubber graintex mallet to the stakes drive into the sand with no bending. We mainly go to Fort de Soto in St. Pete and there is a lot of wind out there at times but the stakes and the canopy hold up with 0 stress.
My prior beach system had me using "E-Z Up Instant Shelters Deluxe Weight Bags - Set of 4". It was easy to transport but once we got to the beach, we'd spend another 20 minutes filling the bags with sand. The stakes are way better.

The tote bag with wheels is also very nice. It's very easy to grab the handle and wheel it around.
The "canvas" material is very lightweight, which I personally like (hey, it's portable --- which means you have to lug it around -- duh), but some may not like it because it doesn't block 100% of the sun. Works plenty well for me, but just so you know ;-)
I'm sure that high storm winds would turn it into a pretzel, but that's a risk with any lightweight canopy. At least you don't have $2-300 invested in it. Heck, if it gets destroyed, just buy another one.
Bottom line: While this thing is lightweight (a plus in my mind), it is very well engineered. If you've ever had one of those "EZ-2-Spend-All-Day-UP" contraptions, you'll be in canopy nirvana with this little gem.
