These tent designs have been tested under high wind conditions with constant winds of 10-15 mph with gusts of 47 mph down the Columbia gorge.  Note, the extra ropes on the windward side poles of the sunshades and the complete LACK of ropes on the small single pole pavilion.  While the large pavilion didn't need it, we had a single high wind line for good measure.

Camping in our period pavilion is enhanced by the easy set up and take down. It sets up easily in less than a half hour, by 2 adults, and can be managed by one person with a little bit of help. The adaptable center pole breaks down to 2 separate poles, for easy transport, and with only a small bundle of poles and canvas, it's easy to fit in most vehicles. Our large King Rene' has slept 7 adults and all their gear, our large round pavilion has slept 5 adults (on air mattresses) with all their gear. (ok, it was kind of cozy) and the small pavilion has slept 3 adults and all their gear.

The sun shades are extremely stable in high winds when set up properly and offer protection from sun, wind and rain. They are made with heavy weight 50/50 poly cotton twill, polypropylene webbing, webbing loops (instead of grommets), patched reinforcements and sail makers nylon thread.  If you want a different type of fabric or canvas, don't hesitate to ask! We are working on finding a low-cost supplier of Sunforger, so that we can offer an upgrade to our current products. If you'd like us to sew an item using YOUR fabric, just let us know. We can treat our day shades and pavilions with Kampkote® brand water repellent (or equivalent) or seam seal, if requested.

Due to material supply conditions and costs outside our control, we are suspending our production of pavilions & sunshades at this time. Check back at a later date for more information about when and if we resume production. Thank you for your continued interest in our pavilions. We will leave this pricing information posted as an example only.
