Our Shadepro Vista Awning Shade (more about that here) does a very good job shading our outside area, however it can only provide shade where our awning is and the design of our awning sucks big time. Keystone totally dropped the ball on this one. Our outdoor compartment, where the TV and all our entertainment is, is not covered by our awning at all. Because of this, we are not able to really use our outside area during certain points of the day- enter Quik Shade.Quik Shade Instant Canopies offer a wide selection of quality instant canopies and shade awnings in a variety of styles. They offer commercial and heavy-duty retail canopies as well as more convenient options for portable shade than anyone else on the market.
Our Quik Shade measures 10×10 and is perfect for adding a bit of extra shade to our outdoor living area. It came completely assembled for quick and easy setup. All we had to do was extend the legs, pull it open and velcro the cover on. It takes about 2 minutes to assemble, and then 5 or so minutes to stake it to the ground. The cover protects 99% if UV rays and the ‘AluminexTM’ backed fabric keeps those under it cooler in the shade.The legs feature three different adjustable heights, at it’s highest option my husband, who is six feet tall can stand under it with no problem. We move it all the way down to the ground when we go in for the night to prevent it being taken away by the wind.
When it is time for us to move to another campground we store it in the included large, easy to use polyester roller bag that it easily fits back into.
