Yes, I should have burned small holes into the canopy where the water likes to collect earlier, I only did it after the first collapse (that's the one on the picture), which I could temporarily fix with power tape to save last Sunday's cook, but kaput is kaput, and another storm broke and bent more of the roof rods (it's still standing as of writing this, but only because I used a garden shovel to support one of the stands.

My easy-up pavilion was a special offer from a local hardware store, the frame definitely can not be purchased separately, and there was no warranty card enclosed. I have no idea, if mine is of the same construction as yours, and I am not quite sure how I can make a warranty claim under these conditions. Do you have a warranty card that shows how such a collapse is covered?

It's a tragedy, mine was standing just a few weeks, I didn't care to mount and dismount it for the weekly cook, so my WSM and the pavilion were standing in the garden the whole time. We had a lot of storms in the meantime and it survived them all but the last one, I really thought it can not be harmed at all. Lesson learned, hopefully the new one with its steel pipe construction does better (hopefully I'll find the time today to unmount the old one and mount the new one).
