    Re: Tailgate Tent

    Hey guys thanks for the response...... I ordered my tent based off your suggestions!

    Serious question, do any of you guys set up a 9x9 tent for one car? or do most of you have two cars you put the tent behind?

    My tent was a gift, but it looks a lot like the one at Scheels. I put the 9x9 right behind my Silverado. Only one vehicle, though it's wider than a lot of "cars" out there.

    Nice, I know ive seen tents that appear to be with just one car full of people but didnt know if anyone ever had someone say something to them. We usually have the tailgate centered around our vehicle and then everyone comes to us so I wondered.

    Re: Tailgate Tent

    In 15 years of tailgating we've had the following.

    First 2 years-One of those joke of a canopies that has like 20 pieces that you have to put together

    Next 3 or 4 years-An EZ-UP knock off

    Next 3 or 4 reays-An EZ-up Cyclone standard size (8x8?)

    Last few years-Quik Shade 10x10 with half wall.


    The only thing I don't love about the current one is that oit has some vent thing at the top that's pretty worthless. It's too big for one stall but we get there early enough to not worry about getting a spot with a lot of space in the grass. It looks like this
