I would recommend this item to a friend.
Okay, But Needs Improvement
I got the bag to go with my Caravan tent and it is helpful. However, here are things I recommend: more durable canvas or textile. I go to farmer's markets and other events that are often in parking lots or on cement. A little scrape on the ground means a hole in the bag. I have several tears already, although, I have only been to about a dozen events. I'm already worrying about how to care for the bag and fix these little rips and tears. An extra handle just above the pocket on the side would help me lift the bag into my vehicle. As it is, there is only a handle on the top for pulling the bag along on its wheels. But when you get to your vehicle, you have to hoist the hole bag and tent up - not easy to do for me - one person, medium size woman. It requires either hugging it in the middle and trying to lift and fit into the vehicle or pulling by top handle up as far as possible and then running inside the vehicle to continue to pull the whole thing inside. I agree with other reviewers who say the bag needs a little more room. It's pretty difficult to pull the bag over the tent and just an inch or two of extra space would be helpful. I tie a bungee around the tent to keep it as compact as possible, but it's still too tight (especially if you have anything in the pocket).
- It's nice to be able to wheel the big, heavy tent around - I could never carry it to assigned sites that are far from load-in areas.
- It needs more durable textile/canvas.
- It should come with repair kit for tears.
- It needs an extra handle on the side.
- It needs a little bit of extra space - pretty tight.
