Caravan Canopy Review

The caravan canopy is the brand of craft tent that I own. It was reasonably priced, has served me well, and is still in great shape.

When I was in the market to buy a craft show canopy, I did a lot of research before investing my money.

I wanted to buy something that was cost effective. That is, I didn't necessarily want to buy the cheapest canopy I could find, but I wanted to find the best value for my money.

One show organizer directed me to a company that sold canopies for many thousands of dollars. Although my business was making a profit, that kind of tent was just way out of my price range and well beyond my needs as well.

I finally narrowed down my top choices for tent canopies to either a Caravan Canopy or an EZ Up Tent. Both brands are commonly used at craft shows, they fit within my budget, and, although people do have the occasional issue, both brands have a very good reputation among craft artists.

I ended up buying a Caravan tent, and I am very happy with it. A lot of craft artists at the shows I attend also have Caravan Instant Canopies and have told me they are quite happy with them.

Here's what I like about my craft tent:

  • It's easy to put up.
  • It's a reasonable weight.
  • It came with a wheeled bag, which makes transportation and storage easy.
  • It came with four zippered side walls for extra display options and protection from the elements. Although I never left my items overnight at a show, I have left my display tables, which I could not have done without the zippered side walls.
  • It has stood up to several uses without any problems.
  • Although it wasn't the cheapest tent on the market, it fit within my budget.

I have heard some people mention that they've had issues with the wheeled bags coming apart. I have not had any problems with mine, and I can say I haven't exactly been gentle with it. Do keep that in mind, though, when you're looking at buying a Caravan Canopy.

Caravan makes a variety of models of canopies, so be sure to read the specifications carefully and purchase one that meets your needs.

A few things to look for in a craft tent:

  • 10x10 canopy size
  • White color (Some people debate the need to use white canopies at craft shows. I think they look the most professional and show your work off in the best possible light.)
  • Straight, not splayed legs
  • Zippered side walls (four if you want to be able to close up the entire tent)
  • Wheeled carrying bag
