Does Caravan have shade awnings for their canopies?
By Tommy H. on March 25, 2013
Answer:No. Caravan does not have a awning for their canopies. This is an EZ-Up brand feature.

Is there a difference between the aluminium and steel versions of the Caravan Canopies?
By Tommy H. on April 15, 2013
Answer:Since you do not specify a model, lets use the Classic and Aluma as examples. The Classic and Aluma are the same product except the Classic has a steel frame whereas the Aluma has an Aluminum frame. Steel is a more durable metal. It will resist bends and nicks and dings much better than aluminum will. Since it is heavier, it is harder to blow over. On the other hand, aluminum is much easier to work with, being lighter. Also because it is lighter, it will put less stress on its own frame which can increase the canopy lifespan beyond that of steel if it is well taken care of. Aluminum will not rust even if it is scratched so it is good for sandy and saltwater environments like the beach.

What's the difference between the 10x10 Displayshade and the Traveler 10x10? I leave mine up all year and like the ability to purchase tops and sides. Do both of these have that capability?
By Emily on October 1, 2013
Answer:Yes, the Caravan Displayshade and the traveler frames can be used with the Caravan sidewalls, and Caravan tops only. The difference is the Traveler is a mid grade aluminum and the Displayshade is a mid grade steel.

How can I clean my Caravan canopy?
By Dawn H. on May 13, 2013
Answer:The manufacturer suggests you use a light soap solution and a soft rag.
By John from Minneapolis, MN on June 3, 2013
What is the difference between the Displayshade & Caravan Traveler? Do the top sides on these model use Velcro or are they zippered? Are the sides of the Alumashade zippered or Velcro?
By Tommy H. on June 3, 2013
Answer:The Displayshade is a model of instant canopy made by Caravan Canopy. It is an all steel frame, whereas the Traveler is partially aluminum, and partially steel, and folds up in such a way that it is only about 4 feet tall when it is put away which makes it easier to travel with. These have Velcro straps which attach the walls and the top to the frame, and the walls have zippers on the sides which zip to one another. This is also true for the Alumashade.

The canopy top sags and holds water and sometimes drips inside, is this a common problem with the canopy?
By Tommy H. on July 26, 2013
Answer:This is a common problem with almost every pop-up canopy regardless of brand. They are not designed to withstand rain. They are shade shelters.
By Len from FL on November 4, 2013
I have a Caravan canopy, 10 x 10, which has been stored indoors, except when in use, which is very little (4 times a year). It is approximately 5 years old. When I used it this weekend, we had a light rain, and it leaked through the top. It appeared that the moisture accumulated into drops on the underside of the top, thereby getting my display wet. Why did that happen?
By Chris C. on November 4, 2013
Answer:Unfortunately, Caravan's tops for their pop up style canopies are only water resistant, not waterproof. The top will keep a passing shower off, but as the top becomes saturated, water will begin to leak through or pool on the top itself.
By Len from The Villages, FL on November 4, 2013
Is there a product that could be used to improve the water proof capability of the canopy?
By Tyler M. on November 5, 2013
Answer:We have had several customers use Scotchgard on canopy tops to help with water resistance. However, please note that any such practice does void the warranty on the canopy top, so use it at your own risk.
By Lee from Spokane, WA on December 31, 2013
I have a 10 X 10 Caravan Canopy . Does it meet fire resistant requirements NFPA-701?
By Emily on January 2, 2014
Answer:Yes, the Caravan 500 denier canopy tops have the NFPA-701 and the CPAI-84 Flame Certified.
By Ray from Trail Creek, Indiana on February 4, 2014
Can the attached (or structural) center canopy post be removed? Or replaced with a shorter post (for stability)? It is a 10x10. I have to plan a show layout but my ceiling prevents full height. Snow prevents doing it outside.
By Emily on February 4, 2014
Answer:For safety reasons, the Caravan must be fully set up. The top will not fit correctly, the slack will not be taken out, as well and will not have the visual effects or the water shed that tops may need to have.

Is there any way to get rid of the mildew on a 10x10 caravan canopy that has been there for less than a year?
By Dawn H. on June 2, 2014
Answer:Once mildew appears on your canopy, there is not much that can be done to get rid of it. But you can prevent it from getting worse. Make sure to clean your tent well and it is completely dry before storing away. Most mildew begins when the fabric is stored away wet. Any damage caused by mildew is usually not covered under warranty.
To wash a canopy top, place top on the frame at lowest setting and rinse down with garden hose. Take a mild detergent and use a soft brush for soiled spots. Do not brush graphics. Allow the top to dry completely before storing.
By Chuck from Dallas, TX on June 16, 2014

Do you have a flame certificate for a 10 x 20 tent? Do they all have flame certificates or just certain models?
By Dawn H. - eCanopy Product Specialist on July 31, 2014
We have several flame certified canopies
. While most will have the CPAI-84 tag sewn into the top, only the Caravan brand
canopies will also have the NFPA-701 tag on the inside of the canopy top in addition to the CPAI-84 tag. The only exception to this is the Caravan M-Series Pro.

By Emily - eCanopy Product Specialist on December 22, 2014

What is the difference between the Craft Show and the Caravan Classic with Professional top canopies? Do you print logos on canopies?
By Dawn H. - eCanopy Product Specialist on February 9, 2015
The Craft Show canopy is made of light weight steel while the Caravan Classic is made of commercial grade still. However, the Craft Show canopy has the addition of weight bags in the package.
We do still offer printing but we cannot print on package deals as the printing must be done before the canopy is sewn together.

How do you clean your Caravan tents? Are they machine washable? Do I need to re-waterproof them after cleaning?
By Dawn H. - eCanopy Product Specialist on May 5, 2015
Answer:They are not machine washable. The manufacturer suggest you clean them with a light soap solution and a soft cloth. This will not affect the water resistance of the canopy.
By Gail from North Branch, MN on September 17, 2015
Do we need to remove the canopy top each time we take it down?
By Emily - eCanopy Product Specialist on September 18, 2015
Answer:Thank you for your inquiry. It is recommended that you take the top off each time you fold up the frame. This will avoid the fabric from being pinched in the moving components of the frame that can cause damage.

By Ann from Freeland, WA on October 12, 2016
We purchased a charcoal grey 10 X 10 Craft Show Caravan Canopy kit in June, 2016 (best I can remember). We have had it up all summer and now into the fall. We love the quality. However, the charcoal grey canopy top is fading to a blue-ish purple, which is not the look we anticipated or expected. We certainly expected fading to occur as we keep it up year around, but we're disappointed in the bluish-purple color. Since it's in the front of our home, we are a little more particular and also surmise that the bluish color will get worse as the color continues to fade. What can you tell me about our problem with this color?
We had a green Quik Shade prior to this Caravan and we had it up for one year. Yes, it faded, but faded to lighter green. Thank you for your help.
By Darnarius on October 13, 2016
Answer:Any of the covers will fade over time as these are not designed to be set up and left up for extended periods of time. If you are to leave it in the elements all year round, this issue will be reoccurring.
By Troy from Miami, FL on January 10, 2017
Can I wash my 10' x 10' canopy in my washing machine?
By Darnarius on January 10, 2017
Answer:The top is not machine washable. It is recommended that you use lukewarm water, mild soap, and a cloth to clean your canopy top and sidewalls periodically.
By Cynthia from San Antonio, TX on February 1, 2017
I purchased a Caravan canopy for my craft show. It was a BBQ cook off. It now has the BBQ smell. And, of course, ash and dirt. How can I clean it? I thought of putting it in my washer on delicate and just rinsing it off, then hanging it out to dry. What do you suggest? Thank you.
By Kathy on February 3, 2017
Answer:Please do not machine wash. The canopy tops are surface clean only. For the smell you might try Febreeze, otherwise surface clean with a sponge and a mild detergent.
By Willie from Wauwatosa, WI on May 30, 2017
