Not for permanent installation .....great for weekend event..
I Should have done more research on this. That said, I bought this to set it up permanently on my deck, our 3rd.enclosure of this type. The other two were 10'x10' and we wanted to go a little longer with the new one so found this that fit the size perfect. First I will say it is well made for what it is...it is made to be put up and taken down in less than an hour and could be done with no problem ...not left up all the time....it comes with ropes and stakes to stake it to the ground and keep it from wobbling all over the place. It would be great for camping or weekend event. I set this up on my deck and as I said it wobbled all over the place in just a light wind blowing. It is less than a foot from my house so I made some 2" wide metal strips I could attach to the house and "U" bolt to two of the legs and lagged the legs to the deck, it is very sturdy now but still not exactly what I was expecting.

Yes but with qualifications
Like the size and was easy to assemble - was easy to remove tent when we had a tropical depression headed our way. There is a problem with water sitting on the roof after a rain. We go out with a broom and push the water off of it so it will not tear. We think if there was an additional support on the sides going to the roof that this might keep the water from laying on the top of the tent cover during and after a rain.

works nicely. You do have to make a "spider web" ...
Had to return the first one,, but 2nd had all the parts . works nicely. You do have to make a "spider web" of ropes under the canopy on the inside to keep rain from building up around edges and bulging the canopy top dpwn.

great value and great product
I anchored the legs into my patio with Tapcon screws and was able to put three out of the four lines into the lawn. The day after i installed it we had very strong wind storms and I was expecting the worst. The gazebo held up perfectly! very pleased!
I also ran wire from the top center ceiling bar to the bottom ceiling bar on all four sides to avoid any pooling of water when it rains

Was very easy to put together
Can't complain for the price and only time will tell how long this lasts. Was very easy to put together. Total time for me with minimal help from my husband was 75 minutes from box open to screening on. It helps to have an extra set to hold the center up while attaching roof rails. Other than that everything else can be accomplished with one person working a section at a time.

this gazebo is nice. not great but nice
this gazebo is nice. not great but nice. it went together in about 60 minutes with a few people and was simple to understand. its not as sturdy as my last gazebo i had that had a "dual pole" structure and this one had a "single pole" structure. with that said I'm very reasonably happy with this as it didn't break that bank. i find it to be a "good deal" for what you pay. i ordered 4 - 50lb sand bags and also have tied it down to the deck railing which has made it much more secure. i didn't have to do that with my old dual pole gazebo.

Very good and easy to put together
Very good and easy to put together. However, don't buy the weights for the legs that AlumiGogo recommends - they don't fit.

A beautiful gazebo.
So far, we are very pleased with this gazebo. It's quite lovely looking, although it feels a tad shaky. It's lightweight, and it was simply enought to assemble, although you'll probably want a helper. My teenage son and his friend put it together in less than a couple of hours. Don't know yet how it will perform in the rain, but I'll update this when I know. Note that AlumiGogo suggests canopy weights with this gazebo as a "frequently bought together" item, but the weights that AlumiGogo suggested did NOT fit this gazebo, so don't buy them! Here's a link to those weights so you know which ones to avoid.

Great for the price but needs modifications to be perfect...
I had an issue with a defective leg pole but it was promptly replaced by the seller with no hassle so A+ for customer service. It took two people to assemble in about two hours with modifications recommended by Gamer99. You will absolutely need weights for the legs if you are not bolting them down into a deck. I used a set of four pop-up canopy sand bags that weight about 30lbs each and they have worked flawlessly. I was able to install a small 15lb patio fan from the top bar using a stainless steel U-bolt and S-hook. I also hung some camping LED lanterns from the corner brace bars using S-hooks as well. The total roof PVC modification list I used in case anyone needs it: 1-1/4 10ft pipe (x5), 1-1/4 tee connector (x20), 1-1/4 45-degree elbow (x8). I can't recall the exact lengths I cut the pipes since I had to shave off small sections here and there to get everything to work. It's weathered a few nasty thunderstorms here in Orlando FL with no swaying or rain collecting on the roof at all.
Update 7/28/18: To help prevent swaying in higher winds I have since ran a nylon rope around each top corner pole and tied it to the sand bag handle. I used an adjustable hitch knot (very simple to learn online) to keep tension on the line.

Hope it doesn't break but glad I purchased the extended warranty
Arrived faster than expected. Will defunetly need 2 people and couple of points to put together. Only complaint is that in the wind it does move laterally a lot. Hope it doesn't break but glad I purchased the extended warranty. Directions could be printed more clearly.
