This is the one I got after returning a larger 12x12 size made by another manufacturer, this one is perfect for 2-4 people. Very pleased with it and the panels.

Got the same one, with the 3 sides. ran me $20 more then your deal. The only issue is the stakes it comes with are crap.

Haven't had a need for the sides as yet, it so simple I just take it down and toss it in the back of the truck when not in use. It does move around a lot when you're trying to set it up, need to get more practice.

Hi: padlin... You could have brought it to Niagara Wine Escape and practiced there!!! Sorry you can't be there.

We just sold our large 6 panel model 9281 Clam because it was just too big for our use and purchased the smaller model 9881 and really like it. Much easier to haul around and fits most campsites better we think.

Yes, we did the same, the large one is good for 4-8 people, whereas the smaller Clam is perfect for 1-4 and more easy to erect by one person. Did you get the extra panels? They come in handy with rain.

Yes got the extra panels for this one too. Have not used the yet on the new one but did on the large one. Smaller one also takes up a lot less room in the truck.

Clam Pop Up

We bought the larger Clam and matching wind/rain panels this spring after spending many hours researching the pro's and con's of the various shelter's and our needs. The first time we set it up it was a bit awkward but that was more our issue then the shelter. We noticed that the roof had been over stitched in a couple of places possibly allowing it to leak. I took a couple of pic's and after a very pleasant phone call to a very helpful warranty department a replacement was shipped the next day. The customer service, funtionality and eze setup makes this an even better shelter in my humble opinion.
