Good pop up for rain?

"I don't know anything about the Euromax - never used one. I can speak for the Undercovers and Trimlines, as I have them and use them. I have had my Undercover R-2 hold up in shows where 5 tents around me went down, yet mine stayed fine and did…"

"Thanks, I often set up by myself also so this is good to know. I'll check into those weights, that sounds like a great solution no matter which tent I get."

"Thanks for this info. It seems lots of people like the Eurmax and the artist next to me has one and it was very dry under her canopy. Other artists said the EZups all leak now."

Barry Shandler replied to Lori Buff's discussion Good pop up for rain?
"I have the Eurmax for two years now and never had a rain or wind problem. I do use three stabilizer bars. I never use my Litedome any more. Its much more rugged but just too difficult to set up for me being alone now. My son got a EZup a few months…"

"My op-Ups are Undercover R-2.  When I first got them I used 303 sealer on the seams only. With plenty of being out in very bad weather, they have never leaked, at all. The tops are secured to the frame by clips as well as velcro.  They…"

Good pop up for rain?

My brand new EZ Up canopy top leaked like a sieve in last nights rain. My old one was never a problem (even without pool noodles or hula hoops). Some of my neighbors told me how this is now a known issue with ezup tents. The Eurmax and the Z Shade seemed to hold up well. Does anyone here have experience with either or another good pop up tent for rainy shows?

Lori Buff replied to Kris Tracy's discussion Credit card payment systems
"I have used PayPal Here for years and I love it. It costs a tiny bit less then Square (2.7% vs 2.75%) but they also give you a rewards debit card. The money from the show goes right into your PayPal account so you can spend it right away (good for…"
