Mark, I have used ratchet straps, rope...once I even used an apron...oops...missed the question...I attach the strap or rope to the top corner around the frame work of the side and roof braces. Some have cloth loops on the outside corner of the awning...they have been know to tear...don't ask how I know :roll:



Thanks Mike. I have not ordered one yet, but it is on the summer purchase plan.

Mark, x2 what Mike says, minus the apron thing :lol: :lol: I go around the top of the frame and hook back into the tiedown so the webbing is around the frame. I got a set of 4 tiedowns at Home Depot for @ $12-14 if I remember right. They were the cheapest ones they had. I dont think I would want to use them for a bike, sled or cooker but they work fine for the pop up.


Thanks, thats what we did with the awning on our 5th wheel camper.

Don't know how I missed this thread the first time around. We use 10 x 10 EZ Ups from Sam's. About $200 each. These come with the sun shade and 4 walls and carry bag. Ours get heavy use for competition, tailgating and family functions. One is about 5 years old and will probably need the top replaced after this summer. The other is on its second season and showing no signs of wear.

I have 4-"3 pound cofee cans" that I poured full of quickrete and inserted 1/4" eye bolt in to hold tent down in mild winds. Bottom of tent leg slips over bolt and then wing-nut to fasten tent to can. In heavy blows, we use nylon straps and bungy cords. I think that the cords absorb some of the inital shock load. Straps are then fastend to coolers, cookers, truck bumpers, trailers or what ever. If set up on Dirt or grass, I have used the corkscrew anchors that you can buy for dog tie-0uts.

My 10 x 10 popup arrived yesterday. Even though it stated two people to put it up, I couldn't wait for help. I took my time and had it up by myself in 40 minutes or so? Looks like it will work very well. I have some pvc parts ordered at the small town hardware store, so once I get those poured for weights, I will get some pictures posted of it up.

I'm really starting to look & feel like a BBQ poser. Trailer, popup, Stumps Stretch, Logo on t-shirts, etc...... ;) :lol: :D

Mark,

When you get a chance can you post some pics? I want to buy one for our reception/party in July and I will also use it in Aug at my competition.

Thanks,

Bill

Sure thing Bill. It will be more the end of May when I set it up again? If you want it early, I can set it up just for pictures. Just let me know.

One thing I've found, everything fits nice and neat in the travel bag, but once you take it out, it is like trying to push toothpaste back into the tube. I think I will get a type of plastic tote to place the fabric cover in? Use the carrying bag for just the frame and poles.

No problem Mark, whenever you get around to doing it...

Thanks,

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.
