For God's sake, I'm a kiosk

A very nice and spacious cube, it bravely faced strong winds - it flexed quite a bit, but never gave up :) Fairly good water resistance and a very useful window for the power cable. Relatively easy assembly, but a second person may be helpful. Inside there is enough space for a table and chairs for 4 people, and there is room for a few items or hanging up some laundry. I use it in combination with a 2 seconds tent and a tarp, which gives a nice modular set for family car trips around Scandinavia and works better than one large tent (you don't have to set everything up for a quick single overnight stay).

Great tent!

Use the Quechua as a kitchen and awning with my VITO van. Setting it up alone is a bit tricky...especially when there's a lot of wind...but it's possible. So far it has been tight when it rains. With a few few and hardly expensive improvements it would even be THE PERFECT TENT. For example: double rider on the large fly mesh. At least one of the windows on the outside is partially covered with plastic film so that light comes in when it rains. you have some view. Plus 1 covered slot for cable entry. Nevertheless: for the price I can't beat it!

I bought it on 3 AUGUST 2023 and used it throughout the summer, it is very good. I used it in Zonguldak and Karabük plateaus towards winter. I bought fireproof chimney hole fabric, installed it myself, and bought a stove and installed it. On those cold plateau nights, the inside feels like a bathhouse. Everyone who saw it came to the tent and got information. The product is funny.

This product didn't disappoint me. Very spacious and comfortable to use. Airflow was never a problem since it has huge windows with screen to avoid bugs from entering. When assembling and dismantling, I recommend to have two person but should be manageable with just one. Was able to easily fit my queen size air bed with enough space for a sleeping bag or table beside it. Highly recommended.

Living room gazebo

Gentlemen, if you are looking for a gazebo to keep in the living room you have found the right article but I recommend that if you want to use it outside then buy a nice tube of sun protection because listen, listen it is not resistant to the sun's rays and if it gets a hole in it it will take shelter under a tree


This is the second gazebo I've bought.

Extra tent

We bought it for our kitchen area and it actually met our expectations. But the floor mat is a little too thin, so the stones left marks at the edge of the hole in the canvas. For comfort, I won't sleep there, but at the same time that's not its function. Despite everything, it held up well to fairly strong winds with rain, so for an extra room, I recommend it.

We test all our tents in a wind tunnel on a turntable. The goal is to expose each side of our tent to the same wind intensity.Well pitched with the guy ropes properly anchored, this tent remains habitable in a force 6 wind, measured at 35 mph.


We test our tents to validate waterproofing.The first test is carried out in the laboratory, 4 hours under 200 liters of water per hour per sqm, equivalent of a tropical rain shower of 200 mm per hour.The second test is carried out in the field under real conditions by our teams. This living area is equipped with a polyurethane-coated polyester flysheet with 2000 mm water resistance. It also has seams that have been waterproofed with heat-sealed strips, and a 4.9 oz/sqm polyethylene groundsheet.
