    ISU Tent

    Does anyone have any good sites or places where I could pay the least for an ISU pop up tent for our tailgate? Those that have done the legwork maybe can save me of the effort of looking all over pricing them.

    Re: ISU Tent

    I too am interested in one, likely going to get one closer to fall.

    Looking for the variety with the tarp that can cover 2 sides of the tent. The ones I've seen are white with ISU info on them.

    Re: ISU Tent

    Looking for advice on this as well. Looking for a good sturdy ISU tent that will last.

    Re: ISU Tent

    I got mine as a gift so I'm not sure where they got it from but this is what it looks like. It is very sturdy and setup is a breeze.
    Iowa State Cyclones College Canopy Tailgate Tent - 2 Colors

    I think you can get them cheaper than that though. I would look at Scheels.

    I bought tent sides (3 sides) online and a propane heater for the really cold games. Now I'm spoiled because I can wear no coat inside the tent when it's 20 degrees outside.

    Here is one I found on Froogle for $199

    Re: ISU Tent

    A word to the wise. Do not pinch pennies on getting a tent. We have lost 3 tents in the last 5 years due to windy conditions. It does not take much wind to destroy these things. I just spent $1400 buying what I hope is a bullet proof tent. Went with the Elipse II by EZ-UP. 10x15 with a red top and yellow sides.

    Re: ISU Tent

    I can't say that our little party of 6 or so would do a $1400 tent, but thanks for giving me something to be jealous of. I am wondering what the shipping is on all these sites at $229.95 and such. It looks like Scheel's or Windsor Heights Hy-Vee would be the thing to do to avoid shipping.

    Re: ISU Tent

    My tent was actually $669, the 3 sides were about $350 total and then I also bought heavy duty ground stakes, weighted bags, and a carrying case for the tent and sides. Total was $1300 and shipping was another $100.

    I'd guess you are looking at $50-$75 bucks shipping for the tent only IMO.

    Re: ISU Tent

    He's right, however.

    Becareful when using these "cheaper" tents. You usually want them in bad weather and I've seen more than a few get tore up in even moderate winds. Those EZ-up things just seem to have a bunch of weak point and fail like an umbrella.

    They're awesome for sunny weather and shade, or light rain. But be very wary in winds.

    Re: ISU Tent

    I was at Target at Merle Hay Mall on Saturday. They had an ISU tent for $170 and I believe the ISU camping chairs were $20. They also had a soft cooler with the ISU logo. Would have bought it, but it only fit 24 "pops".

    Re: ISU Tent

    Well since Im broke, I'm just borrowing my parents canopy tent and putting on the red top instead of the blue. I know it doesn't say ISU or anything, but at least its red. Maybe that is the inexpensive way your looking for?
