I bought two of these tents from Walmart.com, and went to my store to pick them up. You'll need a truck to get a tent; it comes in two big, 6.5' boxes that are rather heavy without help.
I bought this product for use at my wedding. I needed a sheltered space for twelve 5' round tables, as well as the space people take up around said tables. After setting up just the roof section of the first tent myself today, I am confident I'll have enough room for everyone to stay dry and/or shady for my big day.
It took about a fifty minutes to get everything out of the box, in position, and set up by myself. The instructions were fairly clear, but the canopy did provide a slight challenge when I went to bungee it all down. It felt a hair too small. I followed the recommended sequence for bungees, and the canopy is nice and snug. Without the optional walls, there are some odd grommets without a purpose flapping on the trim pieces.
Also, the trim pieces on the ends do not look like the trim in the pics on the product. They don't come to a wider section at the top as shown; it's more of a continuous margin, like the sides. I don't mind terribly, but it would be nice to show it accurately on the product image.
While reading the instructions, you come to realize at the end that the manufacturer seems to strongly recommend anchoring your tent with an optional kit...which you haven't got (of course). I am going to have to rely upon nine inch nails to pin it down with the provided feet. We'll see if I have a calamity by tempting fate in this manner.
Lastly, there are warnings about this sucker making a wonderful kite, and it recommends you take the canopy off if there's a storm. Which kind of defeats the purpose, don't you think? Oh well.
Hope this helps.
Although quite pricey, this tent was amazing to have keeping our guest out of the hot summer sun during our son's birthday party. We paid about $465 (that included shipping), but to rent this kind of tent was $200. So using this tent two to three times will have paid for itself. Having at least two people putting it up is the easiest way to go. Our guests loved it.
The pictures on the website (both Walmart's and the manufacturer's) and the pictures on the product packaging and installation instructions contain false pictures of this product. The cover does not overhang the structure on any side. The cover bungees to the perimeter frame about every foot around. The advertisements are totally deceiving as to the look of the canopy, but the product function is not impaired by this detail
This is an excellent value. The canopy is well constructed and easily erected. We put it on a concrete patio and anchored the legs to the concrete. It is holding up well so far. Waiting for the first large thunder storm to see if all goes well. Seems to be very sturdy.
I was planning on renting a couple of canopies for an event. I found these and it was cheaper to buy these then rent. Reviews were good so I got 2. Set up was easy, follow the directions. Having 4 people made it go fast. Took them down, put them back in the box and have them for future events.
Quality is good and worth the price.
I am very surprised and pleased that it is so sturdy. I expected flimsy poles but these are very solid.
This was purchased to allow all-weather protection for a festival. It is great quality and value overall except for the "powder coat finish" that it advertises and is printed on the box. I am familiar with commercial powder coating, and I don't think this is a true powder-caot finish. It already had paint scraped off when unpacked. When dis-assembling after its first use, the joint connections were rusting (we had tons of rain during the weeks that it was up). I will need to clean and repaint those ends before the next use. HOWEVER, it is a great tent for the money. Because the frame is a heavy 2", plan on two people for moving the boxes (2) and doing your set up. Thumbs up.
When you open the and see all the pieces you think what did I get myself into, in reality the set up was extremely easy, my 11 yo son and I set it up in no time. The quality also seems very good, not some cheesey tent you use once or twice the it breaks- great quality-great value
I wasn't expecting much for the $250 I paid on Walmart.com but I was pleasantly surprised this weekend. We used it for my daughters 1st bday and it was really well received by all of the guests. No one could believe I only paid $250 for it. It's heavy steel frame is press fit so no screws necessary on assembly. It went together relatively easy once we figured out how to attach the bungees to the canopy. The take down was the easy part. It used to cost us $400+ every time we used to rent one so it was well worth it. As long as it's not becoming a permanent structure it should last a longtime.
Renting this size of Canopy is not cheap. It is good for church.
This item was 277 earlier now it's 292 ..when I went to check out I seen the price raise .. It's not right
I ordered this tent thinking it will be great for use at my wedding and other future events. I picked it up today and well no tarp top. Also no instructions or some other part that it is supposed to come with. Not to mention the box was completely destroyed.
This is likely an okay product. I opened it up and didn't bother setting it up. It had way too many pieces. I'm going to return it.
I wish we had known about King Canopy before having disappointing experiences with other makers.
We bought three of them and two of them were large enough for the first event. Be sure and watch the You Tube video to save time on set up. www.youtube.com/watch?v=AVPOPLXesZs .
(the first one took over an hour...the second took 24 minutes after watching what we had done wrong. The storage bags, purchased seperately, work great. The black bag with rollers is well built and holds all the poles. Two 40" bags are needed to hold the cover and fittings for the 18' x 20' tent.
This went up pretty easy, but we watched the youtube assembly video the company has online. The tricky part is the corners on bottom need to be turned short side toward the middle. All in all it went up easy with two of us putting it together, forty five minutes or less.
Very good value , Was in a pinch and had to set it up my self but would recommend 2 to 4 people for easy speed and safety.
