I just set it up in the drive way and the answer is 6ft2 at the lowest and 6ft5 at the highest. The poles cross so..
The last one I had I kept the canopy on the frame so I did on this one too. Not sure why everyone else take the canopy off? Fits right back in the case. It is very nice, bigger than my last one. I was thinking maybe a 12x12 but I think this one will work good. I will have to raise it up at least on one end. The end of the sq legs is 3/4 inch so something that is 3/4 will fit in there to raise it if you put it next to the egg.
There was a warning on it saying not to use next or near a Trails West
camper! Not sure what that was all about but.
It has been years and years since I put one of these things up. And it came back to me. One person can do it with very little problem if they know how to do it. 2 peeps would be better but not worth asking the wife to help! If you know what I mean...
