I would recommend this item to a friend.
Fast, Easy and Quality!
Our canopy arrived way ahead of expected delivery date. We were able to set it up in less than 1/2 hour the very first time. The frame and canvas were both very high quality, and fitted to perfection. There were even some major features that had not been touted in the description. The center post has a tension adjustment, so you can be sure to get just the right spring loading to keep the unit taught. Don't expect any "puddle problems" with this unit. There were strong elastics with plastic clips on each side of the fascia to keep the wind from causing problems too. Each top corner has sewn in "D" rings for attaching tie downs, and the unit came with ropes and ground spikes at no extra charge.
The first setup takes a few extra minutes, as you'll want to get the canopy lined up square, and the Velcro strips attached just right. After that, you can leave the cover in place, and the unit will fit right in the carry bag with no problems.
The carry bag has been improved over early models. It seems plenty strong, loads of extra storage space, and good quality zippers and wheels. The whole unit fits perfectly between the rear doors of my Mini Van for secure and convenient transporting. Leaves the whole rear area available to use for other gear.
While we haven't had a chance to use the unit at a show yet, I think this will be the perfect unit for our needs. It should last a very long time if my sense of quality is accurate, and it normally is. This is not your bargain store unit! It shouts quality in every way. I'm glad we decided to spend a bit more, as we got a LOT of quality for the small increase in price. Something tells me this unit is destined to be an heirloom investment that didn't need to break the bank. I just hope the future generations like my choice of the PURPLE COLOR . . . But being in a RAVENS FAMILY, it will no doubt be in their genes!
