We got a Gazelle https://www.gazelletents.com/Portable-Gazebos a couple of years ago but haven't been out when it was buggy enough to bother with putting it up. IIRC, we chose it because it would fit in the bed of the truck w/o angling. It seems to be good quality. One person can erect it but easier with two.

We have a Eureka 12 X 12 Northern Breeze screen room. It has flaps to close it in like a tent, roll them up for screens. It has poles to make one flap an awning.

Thanks for the recommendations. We ordered a Clam last night after watching a bunch of YouTube videos.

We have the 12 ft. six sided Clam 1660 screen tent, and is nice and roomy.

I love my Clam! I do lots of crafting and reading inside it.

We first purchased the Clam. It was a beast to carry and with our 6 1/2' truck bed had to be angled when going down the road. At the Minneapolis Camper Show we saw the Gazelle, so at the heavily discounted show price we purchased one. The Gazelle takes up half the space, is about half the weight and does not need to be angled in the truck bed. The Clam is great for larger groups or if you need the huge space. The Gazelle is perfect for 2-4 people.

Only for the "Family Campout" do we bring the Clam, otherwise it just stays a home. We've decided to sell our Clam next summer though, so if you're near Lanesboro, MN give me a shout.

Enjoy,

Perry

I forgot to mention I have the smaller Clam (6x6 I believe). It does fit in the back of the Tundra just fine, but a larger one would be problematic, like what you encountered. It's mostly me using it, so it's the perfect size for my chair, foot rest (for when I'm reading), side table for drinks and snacks and small 3' plastic folding table I use for crafting and eating on. And writing inside of cards I sent to folks while I'm out and about.
