E-Z up tent/gazebo
Does it need to be a quick erection <sniggers />?
We’ve got one of the newer deluxe (ie sturdier) Coleman event shelters. It’s a multi man job to put up but with the sides and ground sheet on it’s a great space. You can chose what combo of doors, sides, ground sheets etc you want.

We have a Coleman event shelter for which you can buy side panels (we have three IIRC). We got it for about £100 (sale at GoOutdoors) and it’s been great.Posted 3 years agomaccruiskeenSubscriber
Just bought one from surf and turf too
Their super light range sits neatly between full on trade/event quality and ‘broken-third-time-you-use-it’ domestic/garden ones.
I went with them simply because I needed a rectangular one, rather than square and not very many people do that. But well put together, light, easy to use. Unlike cheaper ones spares and repairs are available from them too so the whole thing isn’t junked if you lose or break one bit.Posted 3 years agoLoCoMember
are a decent price, solid and won’t blow away as they’ll take compression straps to the frame fixed in the ground with corkscrew pegs or 25 litre water containers, we’re onto our second one as the first was so good but a touch tobig for me to put up on my own.Posted 3 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Those big Colemans are ace.
I’ve got a cheap ebay eazy-up copy. It weighs a ton and doesn’t feel as strong as the real thing, but it’s waterproof, does go up and down easily, and cost a fraction as much. In bad conditions, it’s as much about how you secure the things down, proper guylines, massive pegs, and not putting the sides on in high winds.Posted 3 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Suspect it’s the same as this one:
Though, I didn’t pay that much for mine, hmm. I like it at £50 but I’d like it less at that price
Oh, and I wouldn’t buy a 3×3 again, bigger than I expected!Posted 3 years agoDaveRamboSubscriber
+1 for the Coleman event shelter.
We bought 2 for Mayhem last year and were just about OK in the wind. Anything less sturdy would have been broken I reckon.
As for being good value, they aren’t cheap but if you get a cheap one and it can’t handle the wind then it’s bad value
I’m going to be selling one of them soon if you’re interested and replacing it with the deluxe version.Posted 3 years ago
