It's only got 3 side legs? Doesn't seem like enough, but it's a HF. I was considering one to clean out the barn for temp storage out of the rain 

I'm wanting shade more than anything! I don't plan for year around use.

Put the canopy to work this afternoon. First off was a fan!

Then I started reclaiming some of the fork lift build metal.

Looky here! I can park an FF under the canopy and still have room to work!

It got boring! I just checked under the canopy as we are getting a good drizzle coming down. It's nice to still have a dry place to work.

It's a welcome piece of shade! Not the best built piece, but it does what I wanted. I have shade to work more freely and a breeze through it.

Fellow up the street uses similar canopies to store his boats under. They have lasted 10 years. Maybe white is the better colour for resisting the sun. My brown wigwam finally ripped along the whole top and  material is very weak. I had done some patches last fall to get through the winter. Cover lasted 4 years or 3 years past warranty

You got my interest up, so I opened the box. That tubing is only .035" wall, pretty thin stuff. But it's a temporary sun shade for me. Quite a few parts to haul to a show and set up, but it could be done. Main thing would be to anchor it well!

I'll post pics as I put it together so you folks can see what it is & if it's something you could use. We have overnight storm possible, so I'm going to wait to set it up. I do plan to hang some cast window weights off it to help, don't have space around it for angled tie downs. Plenty of other things I can tie it down to, though!

Old brake rotors work good for weights. Just my .02cents worth. Fill the hat part with concrete and put an eye bolt in there before it hardens.

I have a 75 lb weight at each outside corner. Then I put a 65 lb. weight hung off each center post. Bet it still tries to fly!
