Tailgate Tent Buying Guide

Interested in buying a tailgate or shade canopy tent? Tailgate canopies are becoming a popular way to enjoy some shade, either at the beach, at the game or anywhere outdoors. The best canopies pop-up with minimal effort, and unlike inexpensive sunshades or gazebos, they are quite sturdy and durable.

Sure, cost is important and simple shade canopies or sun gazebos can be purchased inexpensively at mass market stores and online. BUT, if you're looking for something that will look good, last more than a season, is portable, AND show off your favorite team or university, then a tailgate canopy tent from will fill those needs!

Based on your intended use of the tent canopy here are some things to consider:

  • What is the fabric & thickness of the tent canopy? Will it fade, rip, or will the logo rub off?

  • Is the canopy water resistant? Does it offer 100% UV Protection?

  • Is the logo on all four sides? Is it also printed on the canopy apron?

  • What is the basic design & sturdiness of the frame? Is the frame made of powder coated steel – especially important for rust protection?

  • Are side panels available - not all days will be blistering hot? Side panels or sidewalls also provide privacy & protection from the wind.

  • Ease of set up? It should not take two people more than 5 minutes.

  • Is it easy to break down, fold up & store? Will it easily fit into the storage bag with minimal effort? You do not want a tent that will never again fit into its storage bag!

  • Are parts available for your tailgate tent?

  • Is the pricing competitive & what type of manufacturer warranty is offered?
