ABC Canopy from Amazon is around $300 and included sidewalls and mesh walls. I've had ours for around 4-5 years; it gets used 8-10 times a year and is sill in great shape. The transport/storage bag wore out pretty quickly, but aside from that, the tent itself has been fantastic.

Ironically, the hardware on the ABC has held-up better than our KD stuff did (after massively downsizing operations in 2019, I sold our KD Canopies).
We used our new 10x20 ABC Canopy for the first time this past Saturday and I was impressed.  The frame is really sturdy and the top and sidewalls zip together well.  We were set up in a corner of a parking lot so we just used the back wall and one side wall to block the street.  It did take a little longer to set up being the first time, but that will shorten now that we have the hang of it.  And yeah the storage bag is already wearing out, so we'll be looking for some kind of replacement.  But the canopy itself looked so good that the venue owner wanted the information so he could order one himself.

I get that reaction every time I set up my Eurmax. The frame is a beast and the canopy looks great. Everyone that has a $100 tent from Wally Mart asks for info..

FWIW, looks like a price drop on the Eurmax at Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BSLQSVO/


Is anyone familiar with this variation of Eurmax?

https://www.amazon.com/Eurmax-Commercial-Outdoor-Zippered-Sidewalls/dp/B07G54PPRF/

Seems like the awning could be an advantage but, since the price is the same, I'm wondering if they economized in the construction?

Check Eurmax direct on Amazon so you can see the description. Their actual eurmax.com website will tell you the difference between the models. The biggest difference is the frame diameter/shapes. The rest of the price difference is really in your preference in the peripheral items. I dont care for the weight bags much but the sides are the real value. My recommendation is get the best frame you can get. The top and sides are all the same quality.

And, I think, yet another price drop. Just ordered this model @ $240. Expect delivery tomorrow.

Recommendations?  Better than the $100 ones at dicks or Walmart.  Not the $900 online.
I have an 8x8 Eurmax in Black. One day I missed staking it down soon enough. Wind blew it away and it flipped over twice. Stayed in one piece with hardly a scratch.
