I remember watching Jason on "While You Were Out" and during foul weather they would use a fold out type of tent or canopy. I also notice that they will use them on Desperate Landscape and other shows on DIY. I was wondering where a person would go to purchase such an item. I've done a search on the Internet and can not find the exact type I'm looking for. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Where would a person purchase such a tent.

Name of such tent
Where to purchase

Target, walmart, lowes, home dept, etc.

Type in portable canopy and you get tons of responses.

Just one of many sellers of these types of items

The smaller 10x10 ones are available at Target, Wal*Mart, ****'s Sporting Goods, Bass Pro Shops, Northern Tool and Equipment, Harbor Freight and probably a dozen other places.

For something larger check out some of the units on the page linked above.

We just lost our canopy, it got a little windy and rip. I need to find a good replacement.
