I think EZ Up brand is good too, but not always the cheapest, and some people are tight on money. I also think regardless which brand, it can break with strong winds. It's somewhat luck, and somewhat being prepared. Use guylines and stake the corners. Lower the canopy when gone or a storm coming, and some people even take the canopy top off altogether to let the wind go through easily.
We used to have a 12'x12' EZ Up brand. It broke in wind at a beach after multiple uses elsewhere, including Roo. I also have a First Up brand and another 10'x10' EZ Up that are holding up so far. Just take good care of it and hopefully luck will be in your favor as well.
Brought these things everywhere. My brother had the regular Flask2Go ones already, that we've used on camping trips and tailgates. My girlfriends and I bought a couple of the Wine ones before Sasquatch this year. They rocked! Filled 'em with wine, margaritas, cran/vodka and could just toss them in the cooler. And it really did hold a whole bottle. or a fifth of sweet tea vodka, yum!
Agreed. I often bring a similar big 1 that I share with friends but also have friends cars next to me so we have some flexibility on how much room we take up. Also, isn't horrible to have the option for regular camping trips as well. The special was for yesterday though. $122ish now.
^^^ I own this and would highly recommend AGAINST bringing this to Bonnaroo. It is too big!! It will take up 3/4 of your area. Other than that it is a great tent!
Depends on where/how you camp. If you have multiple vehicles or are in groop camping it may be worth it. But I agree for general use (drive up with one car) it'd be too much.
That I will agree with, you could get away with it depending on your location and group size. But for your standard Bonnaroo space, no way.. We had just enough room to BARELY put our coolers and two chairs between my tiny Hyundai and castle sized tent the year I brought it. And our drinks had to sit on the hood of the car. Luckily we met some fantastic neighbors and had some space to hang out in since we had basically zero left at our spot!!
I have that exact model and brought it to Roo. It was our first time there so we were a bit lost. However, we totally lucked out due to neighbours parking their car but stayed at friends place down the way. Great tent if u bring at least 2 cars
