We have a Costco EZ-UP which we can move to where ever we want. This item is neat, but has limitations. It does not say what speed it is rated at.

I invented this shade device for your hitch last year. It's frame is aluminum, the fabric is 95% shade factor fabric and it can withstand constant winds in excess of 40 mph. This is the real deal made to last!
