- Totally happy with Screenhouse. We had a couple of stormy nights with high winds and it stayed up.
- We went camping for three days and it was a big help to store are food and eat Inside . Also used it to do garage sale’s and it was a hit with selling shave ice and having no moskitos.
- This is a large screened in room with plenty of space for your needs! I got it because we live in Florida, and the bugs are so bad at night that you cannot sit outside and enjoy the night for the bugs. This was a cheap temporary alternative to enclosing our porch, and it exceeds our expectations! It slopes up from a floor space of 13 x 9, but it is a gentle slope that leaves plenty of head room for my 6 foot frame. We fit a table and two chairs in there comfortably, and still room left over for a fan, if there is no breeze. I found the screen to let a breeze in fairly good, when there is one. If I have any complaint at all, it is that the fabric at the bottom does not cover the grounds like it should when the tent is taut. However, for the price, I highly recommend this screen room for anyone looking for relief from insects.
- This screenhouse was easy to set up in a short amount of time with 2 people. It functioned well as we put all our food and coolers inside it in the shade. Take down was easy also. For the price especially this screenhouse cannot be beat.
- We use it when camping in a very mosquito-heavy area and it works super. Not sure why some folks think it’s hard to put up; it’s a standard tent with nothing tricky to it. I’m a female in my sixties and put it up the first time by myself in about 8 minutes. There are certainly fancier screen tents out there, but you pay a great deal more for them. This was roomy and did what we needed it to.
- I had a horrible time trying to set this up by myself. I have another Ozark Trail canopy that states 2 people need to set it up but I’ve been able to set it up and take it down solo many times. THIS canopy – oh man, the legs just didn’t want to stay up. Plus one of the elastics attaching an elbow connector to the canopy came undone. I may give it one more try – especially since it’d be such a convenient canopy to have, well if I can ever get it set up.
