I have graduated to steel weights. I have two weights suspended on
a chain from each tent corner. We made them of 2 inch square by 24
inches long. They weigh about 30 pounds each.
I have the Trimline canopy, but I’m one of those who use the ugly
jugs. We try to get them out of the way as much as possible, but
you’re right, they are hideous looking. (BTW, 5 gallon jugs weigh a
whole lot more than 8 lbs.) I haven’t been able to convince my
husband, yet, how ugly they really are; he just doesn’t see it. Can
you please tell me where to get the steel weights you mention? I
can’t talk him into using the concrete weghts, but this sounds good.

I didn’t get the first bit of this thread but “Trimline” caught my
eye. I need to buy a canopy for an outdoor show where I am within a
larger tent. I assume that the Trimline will be adequate, but will I
have to weight it even when I’m in the tented area. Your thoughts on
this are appreciated.

Trimline not only will be adequate; it’s pretty heavy when assembled
and definitely won’t need weights if it’s under a larger tent. The
other advantage is that you won’t have to put on the top in that
situation, just the frame and sides. I have loved my trimline for
over 8 years.
