I looked but couldn't find any place. So I ordered ours from Amazon.com and had it delivered to a parcel hold at the border. Picked it up and paid the HST (Ontario). In Thunder Bay we live 1/2 hour drive from the border so just a hop to get stuff. Interestingly the clam came from one place in the US and the side panels came from another place... so two packages.

I don't think ours was inside out. But I think I got it up in about a minute. I think the "take down" took me longer to figure out how to get it all rolled up to fit in the bag. Ended up buying sleeping bag straps to sort of "hold it together" to get it back in the bag.

I think that is what happened with mine, I returned it.....

Many items offered on Amazon.com - both from Amazon itself and from resellers - are not available on Amazon.ca, and not shipped to Canada from Amazon.com.

Fbalexander, I found the larger of the 2 Clam shelters on the Princess Auto website. I think the cost was $379.

Sorry - the screen tent that Princess Auto has is the Gazelle (previously mentioned on this thread) - appears to be virtually identical to the Clam. And the cost is $379 CDN.

The 12x12 Clam also comes in Forest Green. At Amazon, the shelter + 3 wind panels + 12 stakes goes for $290 US. Can also use it on the patio at home. Thanks for the tip.

The 6 X 6 ft Clam seems to be on sale at Amazon.com for $158.39

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I stopped dithering and finally ordered one, plus the 3 extra wind panels and some extra tent peg stakes. $208.38 USD for all 3 items, which is less than the regular $219.99 price for the shelter alone.
