Got one last year.

It rained heavy one day and the water collapsed the whole thing.

I am not saying its a bad deal, just saying its a bit flimsy.

A heavy wind took the one out my buddy bought last year. He set it up while he was grilling (in a local competition) and about 30 minutes later, the wind took it down and it bent when it hit the ground. he threw it away.

at least say it like Yoda...

The Gazebo Alone, Fight You Must

or the Oracle...

There is no Gazebo...only a void where the sun should be. Well, there also is no void. Come to think of it, there is no sun either!

Sun Setter was ruined by rain? EEK!

OP, good deal, but I always worry about the wind picking up one of these from my back yard and throwing it into my neighbors house... $100 sun shade causes $5000 in damages.

Those posts don't look as sturdy and it doesn't have the 4 corner shelves either.

Yes I went out there in the morning to let the dogs out and one of the legs was hanging Frown I called sunsetter for repair but I guess they dont make this model anymore and I'd have to replace the whole thing.

I have one of these from 3 years ago when it was $89, I think.

I have it bolted to the deck, but I had to raise it 8 inches (2 pieces of 4x4 left overs) because even at the highest point in the arch, I was getting my head caught in it, and I am only 6' tall.

Even though we remove the "roof" in the off season, it has deteriorated from the sun to the point where it just tears when you try to tension it when you put it back on.

One of the welds failed last year on the cross beam that tensions the fabric. I just used a u-clamp to hold it in place.

It held up nicely to some strong winds. So, I can't complain about that.

One of the legs broke? Is it at a joint? You could have it fixed. A local exhaust shop might be your best bet, but any seasoned welder should be able to fix it or maybe even make you a new one.

great deal on a gazebo ,

its crazy how overpriced replacement gazebo cover/clothes are, in comparison to the whole set.
It's actually more cost efficient to buy 2+ of these, than to assume you can replace the cover later on, when the cover dries or gets destroyed by weather.

of course, you can break down and put up a gazebo repeated, depending on the weather, and extend the life of the cover.

Now with everyone saying that the elements easily take these things out, has anyone tried making a Gazebo like the ones shown?

It doesn't seem hard, seems like it would me more cost efficient if one had the time and you could make it sturdier as well.
