Let's start with the frame, which is constructed of textures, powder-coated enhanced steel and provides a durable, stable base for the shelter. Like all Caravan frames, the patented design of this one makes it extremely easy for one or two people to set up in minutes. There are 5 available height settings, all of which are simple to access thanks to the unique pull-pin design of the adjustable legs. If you select the highest available setting, you'll enjoy 11-foot peak height and an industry-leading 7 feet of clearance underneath the top.
The tent top is no slouch, either. This top is fabricated from 500 denier professional-grade polyester. It's available in a variety of colors to help you match your gathering, your home, or simply your state of mind. The top provides water resistance, fire resistance, and even an advanced degree of protection from potentially dangerous exposure to UV rays over the course of a long day outdoors.
There's a lot to like about this shelter in terms of both operation and style. Many people seem to like it, though, for the amount of canopy they feel that they get for their outdoor shelter dollar. Whether this is the first canopy you look at in your search for the right shelter or one of many stops along your complicated shopping path, you'll find that the Caravan Classic 10 X 10 Canopy with Professional Top is a great example of not having to spend a whole lot to get a high-quality shelter.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
Looks like a quality tent

This is a replacement for a temporary food vendor/concession. The frame construction and operation look and work like a quality piece of equipment. I can't open it by myself like I was led to believe from the write-up, but it is probably because the top is still very new. If the top is removed from the Velcro at each leg, I can then open it by myself. The bag it comes with is only a dust cover and most will need to order the rolling bag. Will know better after a season of use.
Pros:Bigger color selection than most. Very sturdy legs Smooth operation - when top is unattached Apparent quality of construction
Cons:Heavier than expected Will not open easily because top is very tight Should include rolling bag - adds extra cost - dust cover next to useless
