Didn't know where else to put this so here goes.
I have an EZ -UP tent. I did not pay 500.00 for it. That model has a 5 year warranty.
I use the tent 21 days a year and an average of 6 hours per day. When it gets wet, I take it home, open it in the garage to dry.
This year, half way through the season, in one of the few rains at a show, the canvas starts leaking. I got out the spray sealer and gave it a GOOD coating, Making sure to get the places where the canvas touched the structure.
At last weekends three day show I left the tent up overnight. We had a heavy dew. As I raised the tent to full height, I started getting wet. It looked like dew on the inside of the tent. But, no........... it was leaking like a sieve. You can see pin holes all over the canvas.
The 200.00 dollar version only carries a two year warranty. This is not quite four years old. EZ up basically told me tough luck and I could buy a new canvas for about 200.00.
I know I'm ranting here, but what are friends for? I believe that a well cared for canvas should last a lot longer!
ps: I'm looking for a new tent and it WON't say EZ UP on it!
