Default 2 10x10 Eazy-Up and rain!

We have 2 10x10 Eazy-Ups. We set them up side-by-side.

If it rains, I can only imagine the amount of water that is going to be flowing down at the middle of the where they meet.

Any suggestions on how to divert the water? Or, anything of that sort.

Thanks in advance.

They sell gutter kits just for that, I bought one. I'm sure some crafty person here can tell you how to make one for less.

We use a few clothespins, just roll up the edges together and pin them.

We bought the gutter kit from sam's. It was only $10-15, and worked like a champ.

Just fold the two up together and we use those plastic squeeze clamps, about 4 and it creates its own gutter and flows out the ends.

Some good ideas.

I think I am also going to find out about the Fat Boy on grass with rain to boot!



Oh well, hard trying times make for interesting stories later down the road.

We folded the ends of each tent over and used plastic clamps to hold them together. This kind of created a gutter. As the gutters are cheap, we just bought them in hopes that they work better. Good luck with what ever way you decide to go.

We do the fold-and-spring-clip maneuver too, with the middle rolled a little higher so that the runoff goes to the sides.

Also, with 10x10s, keep an eye on puddles gathering on the roof toward the edge -- we poke them from the underside every now and then to bounce the water off, because our canopies have seen a couple of seasons and aren't supertight any more.

Good idea about the middle part!

LOL! Yep, I usually do that at the most unopportuned time, like when someone is walking underneath the edge, or someone moved a storage box or something underneath the edge.

Make sure you use STRONG Clamps!! When you poke the water away, we've had it bust through a clamp and come right into the middle of the site - on top of people and things. Clothspins are not strong enough.
