For those of you considering outdoor shows, I just found a deal on the Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register with awning.  This is one of the 3 most recommended canopies when I was investigating them last year.  I ended up borrowing one of these, twice.  It's not one of the lightweight "economy" models that normally are priced this low.  Now that I had some time to investigate further, I found a deal.  Last year I was seeing prices of $500 and up for the same canopy, sidewalls, and wheeled carrier.  This package includes that, plus front awning, sign holder, anchor plates, and stakes for $300.

Many shows require a white canopy with straight legs.

Jim I think you will love it! I have a simmilar model I got about 8 years ago now. I got it from costco for a couple hundred bucks. Use it a couple three times a year for car shows and various events and love it. I dont have the awning but its no biggie and I have never used the sides. Hopefully I will be using it more in the comming years for more stuff as I look in to shows and such.

Mine arrived today.  I'll need to set it up tomorrow and check everything.  I'll at least need to get some touch up paint.  UPS handling was a little rough.

I got one a few years back.  It has been a worth while investment that is used a lot.  Sturdy and can take a beating too.  Mine came with extra big feet so I could put a cinder block bor 5 gal bucket of water on each one for an anchor when on a hard surface.

This one has the big extension feet, an awning, and a sign holder pocket.

If you didn't already get one, that sale is over, and I noticed that the price went up $100.

I don't do shows, but we bought a 10x10 to supplement the 20x10 we use for Relay for Life from Costco.  It's an Undercover rather than the E-Z Up, but we've been using for a couple of years and I've been very happy with it.

Jim I have the exact one you are mentioning I believe and I really like it, the front shading awning is worth it's weight in gold especially with wood bowls not wanting direct sunlight. I have used it once and was very pleased with mine. I got tired of borrowing and old one from a friend. The sign pocket is nice also.

I didn't have an immediate need for it, but I had borrowed a friend's canopy twice in the last year and liked it.  I guess I timed it real well, because the same package is now $600.

Now they have the Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register canopy on sale for $300, and you get free Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register.  Add the weight bags to your order and enter the coupon code, FREEWEIGHTS, during checkout.  This also includes the roller case.

Don't know how long these deals will last.  If you are planning on doing craft shows, many don't allow any color except white, and require straight legs.
