Hi,

We found them on Amazon however, they wanted 158 CDN for delivery and the delivery timeframe would after we left to collect our trailer. However, I will call them tomorrow and see what they can do.

Ouch that is a lot for shipping. I hope you're able to get the one you want for a reasonable shipping fee.

Try ordering from walmart.ca. They can probably bring it to Courtenay for you.

clam is kind of bulky for shipping, when we bought ours from Amazon even though we got it for 2 days shipping (Prime) it still came pretty beat up.. luckily it was just the box and the inside was intact.. I've heard someone bought one from Amazon and came unusable two times and eventually gave up and got one through a local shop. so if you are having it shipped to a 3rd party you might have to be prepared to handle the worse case.

For anyone who has an Aldi store nearby, this week's flyer advertises a Clam look-alike (their Gardenline brand), 6-sided, 127"x139" pop up gazebo for $99.99 USD. Of course it's hard to know if the quality is as good, but some budget-minded folks might want to give it a try.

Try looking at a Gazelle screen room. They look just like a Clam and come in different sizes. Very comparable to a Clam Shelter.

When I was at the Bandon OR rally last summer I got to look at quite a few different shelters in person. I went with the 6x6 brown Clam as it has water/rain flaps that go over the removable wall covers. Someone at the rally said only the brown Clams have that flap. I used it several times when it was sprinkling at some outdoor dog events I was vending at and it worked great at keeping the water on the outside of the walls. I also used it last weekend at the Maryhill WA rally and it worked great at keeping the bugs out (when someone (not me) remembered to zip the door closed, though - LOL).


With the 6x6 I'm able to put it up and down by myself. And we fit 3 women in there at one point, all in chairs, along with a small plastic folding table that I use for crafting, a footrest and a small table from Cabela's. Cozy but still room for our feet and all that.


I purchased from Amazon.



Good luck getting one!
