Anybody Ever Used One of These

Postby IndyTom » Mon Apr 07, 2008 2:02 pm

I am looking at this for a picnic table shelter.

Any experiences? Any personal review? It seems that it starts to rain just about the time we sit down to eat on every camping trip. Im just trying to prepare for that.

Well, and the campground at Brown County where the Indiana Spring gathering is taking place has a distinct lack of shade.

from personal experiance i have found that if its raining, with a breeze or any real amout of wind, your still going to get wet, the rain can get threw the mesh, unless you maybe have a tarp or two to cover the mesh some.
but otherwise they are good.

i used go go camping with my family alot.

Hi Tom,

We like the Quik Shade... matter of fact we have two of them the 10' x 10' and the 8' x 8'.

I'd recommend the 10' x 10' so much more room...

They set up and fold up fast and they have accessories for them now. I think there's side walls and even a tent you can use the frame for.

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Eureka Northern Breeze is the ticket. All four walls can be used as awnings or rolled up out of the way. Snap-in floor.

Mine has withstood many severe thunderstorms. 12' x 12'

Campmor carries them. I wouldn't camp without it.
