The Caravan Canopy Domain Carport is perfect for parties, the storage of a vehicle, camping, or just put up in the back yard to enjoy extra shade! The only thing that I'd see as an issue is moderate to strong winds. You'd have to anchor it tightly. Over all I'm very pleased with this product. I would recommend it to my friends and family!

I got this to serve as a shelter out on my farm. Went up easily with two people (took about an hour). We taped all of the joints as suggested and I've anchored it with a rope over each end tied to cinder blocks. I plan to get 6 buckets and fill them with concrete to give a little more height and a stronger anchor. A few florida rain storms have blown through and it is still standing. Very satisfied.
Easy to set up, but don't expect to keep this out if it's windy outside. The metal is very thin and will bend very easily. I covered my bars that bent with 1 1/2 inch pvc and it seems to be holding up. If you want something permanent then you might want to spend more money
This canopy is great for occasional use. However, as an every day "carport" the material can really dry out and tear very easy when adjusting. Also, if there is a big gust of wind, good luck. I had to regularly pull legs out of my neighbors back yard. This time around I decided to throw out the entire thing and just get a boat cover as that's what I was covering.
Light weight but served it's purpose. Same price as renting a higher quality product but I will still have this for future events. I would not recommend leaving this up for prolonged periods. I do not think it would fare well in windy weather.
I am very happy with this canopy. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. Two of us had it up in less than 45 minutes. It appears well made and sturdy. I staked all 6 legs with T-posts and am using this as a horse shelter. I am able to feed my horses out of the weather and all three gladly seek shelter. Just went through a strong storm here in the foothills and everything is intact. Great value for the money.
I am using this for my wood shop, I have this situated in the side yard where it sits between the fence and the house. Because its a tall fence, ( on a long side, and a short side ) and sits beside the house, its kept from direct wind, I have it anchored down on the 4th side. It went up very easy, I had it up in less than an hour. Very affordable, and if I need to add tarps to any part of this in the future, it can be done very easily.......
For the amount of money this canopy is well worth it. I would recommend it.

I have purchased several of these types of canopys over the years. I find them to be a really great alternative to the more expensive and smaller traditional gazebo/canopy. I like the height and space these offer. This one was about 1/2 the price, so I tried it. It's much weaker in the frame (lower grade metal), and the material of the the canopy feels lighter as well, but for the price it's about right. It went up well, and looks great. I don't expect the shelf -life to be near what I got from the stronger ones, but I'm satisfied for what I paid for it. I would recomend it to a friend as long as they understand this will not offer years of use.
- How accurate was the sizing? very accurate
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Not as sturdy as I expected
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Just a small dent in one of the poles, but not a structural issue, so no big deal.
Great product. I've been wanting to purchase one of these tents for years rather than renting or borrowing. It's the perfect size for family events.
