I'm on the market for a couple 10x10 ezups. Was thinking of buying the Caravan brand this time. What do you think the best option is and where to buy from?

I got my Caravan's from Costco.com.

$224.99 --- this includes 4 side walls, a canvas baf and shipping included

I always thought they were good quality. these are steel posts... Once, they had them in the store cheaper but they were aluminum posts

Got my EZ Up (EZ Up brand) at SAMs last month for a little under $200. Works good!

Having been thru many EZ UP brand canopies prior to competing in BBQ comps I think I am going to try the Better grades from Impact .I have a friend who has a 10 X15 And it is way better then the EZ UP and similar ones.Might be double the price but they look way better.

Wish someone made adjustable legs so you can get the canopy high enough to cover the ramp of a trailer. I'm taking more about something to attach to the bottom of the canopy legs.

Did you talk to Kelly Wertz about how he had his done when you were at Omaha? I saw he had the exact set-up you are talking about.

i know sports authority sells ez ups with no walls at the end of the year for $40. at least they do by me. i have a caravan and i think its a little more sturdy than the ez up but for $40 use them and toss them every season
