It's tempting to think of the 18' by 40' canopy as simply a tent the size of a house. But of course, a canopy with such a spacious interior has many more uses than a house. For example, you can't store boats, equipment, and construction or farm machinery in a house. It's not a good idea, either, to hold company meetings in your house. But you could camp out in a canopy tent. All in all, 18' by 40' canopy tent for the win!
