Yes, they set up quickly, easily and with no tools needed. With our truss design, you can open and close your canopy all by yourself in a matter of minutes. By leaving the top on, there aren’t any loose parts. You’ll love it!

Caravan® Instant Canopies are manufactured to provide instant protection from the elements. They stand securely on dirt, grass or pavement, but to avoid a sudden wind, it is best that they are staked or weighted down. Though they can withstand the elements, please be reminded that Caravan® Canopies are not meant to be a permanent structure, so they should not be left unattended for lengthy periods of time.

  • This video above will show you how to properly assemble your Caravan Sport Shelter.


Manufacturing practices at the factory i.e. standardized dimensions on component tubing which allows for simpler inventory and greater economies of scale coupled with our container- load buying practices allow us to offer a better, stronger, lighter canopy that is easier to put up than the competition’s. As with any product, when you compare features, Caravan® Canopies are the best value available.

All Caravan tops are FR rated. This is not necessarily true for many of the other competitors.

Powder coated frame components are textured to resist scratching and finished in a bi-color scheme to hide soiling.

Caravan® frames are stronger with fewer pieces, adding to ease of use and uncomplicated maintenance.

Caravan® pioneered the use of pull pins as a safer alternative to finger pinching push buttons.

Our height-adjustable peak pole allows users to tighten up their tops to ensure a perfect fit.

Our use of extruded, rather than seam-welded, rolled steel in the truss bars allows for stronger frames that weigh less than conventional designs.

All components can be easily replaced with a commonly available Allen key.

All canopies are provided with a tie down kit and rings at the canopy corners for securing the canopy in windy conditions.

  • Dye sublimation: is printing on paper then transferring the image from paper to white fabric through a heat transfer process. This print method is great for logos that have gradients (one color blending to another color exp. tie die shirts), printing humans, or just a cheaper option for multiple colors in artwork. Our dye sublimation process sets graphics into the fabric and cannot be scratched or peeled off. The underside of the canopy will be white, and graphics tend to last from 6 months – 2 years depending on sun exposure.
  • Silk screen: is printing on our died fabrics, using an old style of printing know as trap system printing. This printing technique is normally used in t-shirt printing, where a screen is produced for each color in the logo and the desired colored ink is passed through the screen onto the fabric with squeegees. The ink then bonds with the fabric so it cannot be easily peeled off. This printing method has limitations to four colors and cannot do gradients.  When printing in this method the price for additional units become cheaper and cheaper as you increase qty. Also the inside of the tent will be whatever color fabric you chose. The ink being passed does not fade like dye sublimation print method but the died fabric will fade over time. Basically the artwork on the tent will last longer than the color of the died fabric.

Vector artwork is best, so files created in Illustrator, Photoshop, QuarkXPress, Coreldraw and saved as .eps work the best.

Your Caravan® Instant Canopy has been made to last, however at some point, your unit may become damaged and in need of repairs.

You can either purchase parts directly through this website or call our toll free number (877-922-6679) to talk to one of our Caravan® specialists. We’ll be happy to help you with any questions you may have and any parts you may need.

There are many factors contributing to the length of time a Caravan® Canopy will last. Some of these factors include how often it is used, under what conditions, and how it is stored.

A range may be between three to eight years, with the shorter end being those who deploy the canopy as often as three times per day from late spring right on into fall, under any and all conditions, while longer end being second-income couples using the canopy as a vendor’s stall at local festivals and fairs.

While the frame can be kept going forever, the tops may be replaced earlier for reasons such as a change in corporate image or logo, a need for a different look for a new promotion, or loss through mishap. The fact that we guarantee our entire canopy for two years, (twice as long as our nearest competitor) is testament to the fact that we believe in our product and will back them better than anyone else!


Caravan® Canopy offers a 2 year limited warranty, which protects your canopy under normal usage. Please see our “warranty” section for more details.


Standard Caravan® colors include: royal blue, white, green & red.

Custom colors include: black, yellow, orange, gold, turquoise, pink, purple, navy blue, gray, forest green and camouflage. LEARN MORE

By using a mild detergent and a soft brush, you can rinse down your Caravan® Canopy with a garden hose. Just ensure the top is completely dry before you fold and store it. This being said, however, you should avoid scrubbing your canopy top if you have graphics on it.
