Coleman 13 X 13 Instant Eaved Shelter

We saw one of these this summer when we were camping .... the same week where we saw a lot of rain in spurts, and the new 10 X 10 shelter we had purchased was unable to handle the large amounts of rain and the water pooled, and we were forced to stand under it an and push the water off. Took it back when we got home....and after research and waiting for a sale, purchased one at a US Walmart. Took it with us in October, and what a difference this Coleman shelter is. Built of high quality construction, was much better than any other shelter we looked at. The design is awesome with the one foot eve all the way around, keeping things dryer. The frame is sturdy, the locking/folding latches are high quality, and the feel of the material itself is so much better. We were impressed, we highly recommend it. We can say this Coleman Product sets itself apart from others on the market.

We use this one and are very happy with it. Goes up easily and folds down into roughly the same space as the standard pop up. We've been under it in a torrential down pour and it holds up very well.

Found it on Amazon and bought one yesterday [$133]. Wife has been bugging me to get something like this, she hates the bugs down south. Saw a Coleman on our recent trip south and your post let me to this one.

My Amazon total for the last 10 days has exceeded $1000 [TT tires, EMS PI, propane valve, etc]. Spending too much time on the forum or on Amazon or maybe both.

I feel your pain my friend.

Do you know there is an Amazon account tool you can use to download a spreadsheet of all your purchases during any time frame you specified? Scary tool to say the least.... Did mine just year to date and almost passed out!

I just got one in the mail the day before yesterday and put it up below the house. It is huge compared to the 8X8's we have had in the past. It will more than adequately cover a large picnic table with ample sq footage to spare. The one thing about it is with the extra size comes extra weight and the extra hands of my daughter and son in law came in handy. There are four large "gutter spike" type stakes for the legs and 4 light weight aluminium for the corner lanyards. I could see these as being a problem in sandy soil conditions such as the beach with any wind what so ever. All in all I am pleased with the quality of the product and should get several years of good service out of it. I do see that if space is a problem, as it is at a lot of RV sites, and you want to deploy your awning, then it may be to large for those applications. For $133 plus TN sales tax it is a bargain.

My vote goes the the Coleman All Day Domes. We have the 15*15 and it has been great through torrential rains, and keeps the sun off all day. There are no surfaces for water to collect on, it just rolls right off the at the corners.
We don't like the screened enclosures because the bugs always find their way in, but never seem to find their way out, and if a bird flies in, then pandemonium ensues.

we looked at this one too .... but went with the 13X13. Faster going up, and whats nice, it has about a foot overhang past the polls, so on a str8 rain, everything stays dry. Good size also, so table etc fits underneath.
