Mark, I am also looking at getting a tent like the summit and was just wondering are the side panels mesh or waterproof canvas? Also judging by your comments this isn't a true pop up right.



I think the pop up would of happened much faster if I would of had the recommended 2 people to put it together?

The side panels are the same material as the roof. In fact, they are all part of the roof. Either side wall can be opened to different positions, even full open to create an awning. I didn't mess around with it too much, since I didn't have it anchored to the ground very well.

My advice - spend the money on a good popup. The cheap ez-ups don't last. The aluminum frame will bend in high wind and heavy rain. You need a popup that has cross bracing from the center of the frame sides to the middle. I originally bought the cheaper EZ-UP. It didn't last the summer before it collapsed in a heavy rainstorm. I bought the exact same model as a replacement thinking I could use parts from the first one to repair the second. That worked for a while - until I ran out of parts. Then one weekend while I was at the awards for a cookoff, I came out to find my canopy destroyed. Metal fatique finally did the frame in. I just dumped it in the trash. My current popup is the "pro" EZ-UP with heavy duty frame and cross-members. If you use it a lot (like I do) spend a little more for it and get a better quality unit.
