I am the current owner of an EZ-Up express. Great for
the beginner at the shows…about reached it’s life
span after 3 years. I lost my top at my last two
shows…it is nasty looking from the seam sealers I
have had to use to keep the seams from leaking (they
did that the first year!)The frame is corroded, my
garage is currently full of my fabric panels and
sidewalls drying out from this weekends bouts with
heat/storm/heat…110 degree heat index on asphalt!
So I am looking at new tents…here is a brief rundown
of the options as I see it.
High End EZ-Up…legs still collapse, cross bars bend.
KD Canopy…same cross bar design…cheaper than the
following options, sturdier than EZ-Up…but not as
good as light dome or craft hut.
Light Dome…I am leaning towards getting this one. I
hear that it is a pretty quick set-up and it seems
sturdier than the EZ-Up or KD but not as much as the
Craft Hut/Show off…Seems the sturdiest, but it costs
a little more and seems to take forever to put up. How
hard is it for a me alone at a show? It has a hundred
