Which EZ Up to buy?

Want to get an EZ-Up. I'm told the EZ-Up is the brand to go with.

Which model should one get?

We have a 10 X 10 and a older Pagoda style, I like the 10 X 10. EZ up has a heavy duty frame and comes in a roller bag. Greg

10x10 is a good size.

There several sizes. you will have to decide size wanted, but make sure has vertical strait legs not angled. I have both but like strait leg more, also pur. side panels, they fasten with velcro, much better than trying to use tarps. Sides are must have if raining or cold. Larger sizes are heavy. I have 10x10 suits me fine. Make sure buy or make pegs to anchor canopy and bottom of sides. Pole barn nails also make good pegs

10x10 from Walmart.(I think the brand now is Ozark Trail).

I have several that I use camping and have held up well in downpours.

I've had an EZ -Up ( I think it's 10') for several years but only use it occasionally. Very sturdy and easy to use.

I think ours is a 12x12, and it's nice, but it's larger and that much heavier to move around, too, and you can pretty much forget putting it up alone - the smaller ones you can usually do alone if you have to, but ours has to have two people. We use ours a couple times a year - sometimes for rallies, or at home if we're having a cookout. It's handy to have around. (Ours isn't an EZ-Up brand, I think. We got it at Dick's.)

We had a 10x10, but unfortunately it was destroyed by a sudden rain storm during its fourth use. Not its fault, of course, and some food vendors lost one or two of theirs in the same storm. The metal frame went completely bananas, and replacing the frame cost as much as buying a whole new unit.

I use the 10x10 slant leg with sides. Mine is the Quest brand, I agree that EZ up is the one to go with. You can buy parts for it pretty easily. My Quest needs a new top, cheaper to just buy a whole new unit.

SIZE DOES MATTER; I have the 10X10 with both screen and solid sides. I take it on most trips. There is now a 10X 15 and that will be the next one. It has the same functions as the 10x10 and 12x12.
Check on Ralleys for Spring in Northern Illinois at Lowden SP and see how we have them arranged. Two are Featherbedders , 1 Tom Nuglers and one is mine.
We could have used a "Circus Tent"

P.S. GET ONE WITH STRAIGHT LEGS. Easier to enclose if needed.

Also get an Ez-up with the silver reflective coating on the inside. They stay lots cooler in full sun exposure. I've had my Ez-up for a long time and am very happy with it.

My 10x10 has silver coating inside, and most I have seen have coating, The slant leg is not ezup, little harder to set up plus no storage bag and no coating. Cheapy I think from harbor frt. In pics. of spring rally sides not on but we put on both sides and one end as some times heavy rain, every thing stayed dry so it was enjoyable for pot luck and just lounging.

E-Z Up makes both straight leg and slant leg. I have a Qwest which appears to be a direct copy of the E-Z UP. Mine has silver coating, slant legs and came with a full set of screens, shelter pieces for 3 sides and a roller bag. IIRC all in was ~$110 from Dick's on sale. E-Z UP would have been 3-4 times that. The closest thing they have to the one I have would be the Vista and they don' appear to make shelter panels for that one.

We have two of the 12X12 EZ Up canopies with straight legs. They are heavier and although my husband has done the putting up and taking down alone he finds that I can be a helpful asset. We would not consider any that were not straight legs because you can tie wrap together easily. We use with our teardrop camper right now but they will be going along if we ever get that Airstream.
