What sort of system does this tent have to secure it to the ground? Is there a hole at the bottom of each foot for a spike, or is there some sort of attachment, so a weight can be added to keep the tent grounded?
By Darnarius on April 19, 2017
Answer:All of the Caravan Canopies come with a standard stake kit for you to secure your canopy in case of windy conditions. We also suggest weight bags if you are setting your canopy up in an area that can not staked.
By Jenna from Florida on October 1, 2013
Is this fire resistant? And is the fabric water resistant?
By Emily on October 1, 2013
Answer:The top is only water resistant. If it rains you will have to knock off the rain so it will not accumulate and start to leak. The M-Series does not have a fire rating but has a layer of fire coating.

I'm looking for a 10x10 or 12x12 straight leg canopy that folds down to less than 48" for storage. Do you have anything that folds compactly when stored in a car?

Is this item water resistant?
By Chris C. on June 3, 2014
Answer:Yes, the Caravan M Series is water resistant.
By Gloria McDermott from California on June 4, 2014
Answer:I had it up when it sprinkled and yes no water came thru.
By Patricia from Scappoose, Oregon on June 4, 2014
Answer:The canopy itself is water resistant. However, closing the tent down with the top on created lots of little holes where the fabric was pinched in the frame. Fabric patch for tents works great. The frame itself is not: it needs lubrication at least once a year and will rust if exposed to wet conditions a lot or folded up when wet. The paint will also come off with tape and over time. All said, this is our 3rd Caravan tent and still one of the better ones on the market in terms of ease of use and durability.
By Steve from Kansas City on July 17, 2014
Is the canopy designed to effectively shed water? I have read some reviews that indicate that the canopy collects water and may collapse if you get caught in a cloud burst.
By Collin C. on July 18, 2014
Answer:This product is designed with the intention to be used only as a shade canopy. Some customers report that the product will hold up under a moderate rain, but I cannot guarantee that it will. Pooling of water is indeed an issue on pop up type canopies and it can collapse the frame if the water is not pushed off regularly.
By Gen from Kenosha, Wisconsin on July 18, 2014
Answer:It did not rain on me until the ninth time I used the canopy. There were several outbursts that day, some of them quite heavy. Most of the rain came right down the 4 sides of the canopy, but a small amount collected near the edges. This came down when someone pulled on the edge, or the wind whipped the canopy upward. The underside was completely dry. To prevent my customers from getting a free shower, I just went around the canopy, tugging down on the 4 edged to minimize the puddle effect. This canopy is extremely easy to set up, lessening the setup time for my sales at a Saturday market!
By Nee from Brooklyn, NY on July 18, 2014
Answer:I use this canopy at an outdoor flea market and have been stuck in the rain a few times. The canopy top sheds most water but does collect some. It's never collected so much that I've been afraid of it collapsing but if its raining a lot I do occasionally have to push up on the sides to dump water off. If it has rained then stopped and you're ready to break down the tent you do need to drain the top before attempting to collapse or the weight of the water could structurally damage the frame as you're lowering it. All in all it's a great tent. Hope this answers your question.
By ken from california on July 18, 2014
Answer:We use the canopy on jobsites. It is really nice in the middle of summer, and we have not used it in rain. However, the peak stands about 3 1/2 feet above the frame giving the roof alot of slope, so I do not anticapate there will be an issue with run off. I can see there might be a problem if the peak is not extended to its full design height.
By PBN from saint petersburg, Florida on July 19, 2014
Answer:I have not had that problem. This is the second addition to one I have bought from them a while back. You have to make sure the top is on there tight and not dipping in the center. Pull down on each corner when you erect the tent. If you do this each time to make sure the top is taunt on there, you should not have the problem. I put two tents side by side for my flea market selling and curve the flaps at the connecting side up so it guides the water to the back of the tent.
By Yvonne from Iowa on July 19, 2014
Answer:OMG - I set this tent up the day before to make sure I was comfortable with that question as well. FIRST of all, I have put up EZ up tents before ... they were heavy and hard to work with, but since this one said it was 30 lbs ... and it has the SWEET wheels on the carrying bag ... AWESOME ... anyway, I set it up last weekend, beautiful sunny morning, THEN the clouds gathered, and I had a customer notice that there was rain in the north, I started gathering up my watercolors and all of the sudden a HUGE downburst, that lasted for over 15 minutes ... CRAZY ... and there I stood in the middle of my Caravan Canopy tent, with my EXPENSIVELY matted and framed work - TOTALLY dry ... (of course I did not have any sides to put up .. so some water blew in from the side... but the canvas was perfect. Of the 4 sides, 3 had been put up perfectly tight, no water, I did have a little water gather on one side, but I think I didn't stretch that side as tight, AND I had a worse experience in a storm with the older/larger/heavy EZ up tent. I would TOTALLY recommend this product (but would add side canvas for the very reason of rain blowing in)

Can this be set up on hard surface? Also, is this canopy water resistant?
By Emily - eCanopy Product Specialist on August 22, 2014
This can be set up on a hard surface. You might want to confirm if you have to stake down or if you can use weight bags to provide stabilization. You can use the link below to view the weight bags. This tent is only water resistant and the manufacturer recommends that you do not allow water to pool up on the canopy top to avoid frame damage from the weight of the water or leaking to the items under the tent.

Is this canopy easy to set up for a female that is 5' tall? Are the materials of the frames aluminum? Is this canopy light weight? How many people are required to set this canopy up? Does this canopy require special tools and a ladder to put up?
By Dawn H. - eCanopy Product Specialist on January 19, 2015
Answer:The canopy weighs 30 pounds and can be set up by one person in most cases. Of course, every person is different. The canopy simply unfolds and requires no special tools. We would encourage you to view the assembly on the item page.
Basically, you begin unfolding the frame, place the top on, finish unfolding the frame and then raise the frame up.
By Corinne from Tampa, FL on November 25, 2014
Is this a canopy where the top stays attached to the frame or do you have to leave the top off to fold it up?
By Dawn H. - eCanopy Product Specialist on November 25, 2014
Answer:As with most pop-up canopies, the manufacturer suggests you remove the top before folding up the frame. This is to both prevent possible tears in the canopy top as well as potential damage to the frame due to it not folding properly if the top in caught in the frame.

By Megan Busby from roanoke al on March 24, 2015
Answer:The tent, when in the case, is less than 8 feet long. I don't know the exact measurement because I don't use the case any more. But when I did use it, it fit into the bed of my truck which is a long bed, 8 feet deep. It is about 1-2 feet shorter than 8 feet. I know this is not exact but I hope it helps.
