True - it was purchased many years ago and I don't remember the price, about $100 seems to come to mind. It was used three times a week at Farmers Markets for five summers, so it got put up and down a lot. We have used it for camping for another eight years, so we aren't complaining about the initial cost.
Last summer we used the awning
and left the heavy canopy at home. Putting Velcro on the three sides of the awning
meant we could stick on the wind walls or bug netting (but that wasn't particularly useful as the bugs came at us from under the camper!). May try to fix that problem sometime.
So many different ways of camping and solving the hassles. I guess everyone has their own personal idea of what is needed to feel comfy!
