Well, kinda sorta 45 seconds. Because once you get it popped up in 45 seconds, you still need to spend a couple minutes pushing in stakes so it won't blow away.

I suspect the price is a misprint. Their website today says $179.99 rather than $129.99. Easy mistake to make, a 2 for a 7.

True, and if you count unpacking it and figuring out which way is up you add another minute or 2. But I bet I can " erect" it in less than 45 seconds

Clam is great....

I had never seen one before ordering from Amazon.

Got the small one so it can fit on my home's deck too.

It was a little over $180.

Really does go up and down quickly and the screen material is very heavy-duty compared to any budget screen house.

For you CLAM owners, can you install wind panels all the way around including over the door area to make it a fully enclosed tent? If you can, is it a problem then to access/depart the thing?

There are no velcro attach points for the door, if there were you would not be able to get in. I guess you can do a make-shift, of some sort, to make it work though. It is a screen room, and if used as such , it is awesome. Carl

I believe the top of the line largest one comes with built in roll down panels. It appears there is one over the top of the door in the pictures. I saw one in person but don't remember that detail

I had some discussion with the Clam folks about using the Pavilion model as a tent. I was hoping to use the Clam to camp until I got my TT at which point I could use it as it is intended. I ended up with a tent. The reasons for this decision? No floor so critters could possibly work their way under the tent. Although the Pavilion has roll down panels on all 6 sides, I would have to re-stake the walls every time I rolled them up or down. There is no rain fly so waterproofing the seams must be done. It just seemed like too much effort so went with a nice, Big Agnes!

We have the Pavilion model and just love it, the doors have a zipper, as do the roll down sides, I think we might have it at Algonac mi.
