Pop up canopy

Party tent

The party tent is a great choice for any outdoor event, whether it's a birthday party, wedding, or backyard party. There is a big difference in the frame compared to the pop-up canopy, the party tent requires time to install the frame whereas the pop-up canopy's pre-assembled frame just needs to be opened and secured.

  • The 10x20 party tent is similar in appearance to the 10x20 canopy. However, the materials used in the 10x20 party tent are completely different. 10x20 party tent roof and sidewalls are made of 120g PE, which is tear-proof, waterproof, and UV-resistant.
  • The frame is made of a heavy-duty, rust-resistant powder-coated steel tube with a thickness of 32mm. It will not bend or break easily.

  • The 10x20 party tent weighs 43 lbs.
The 10x20 party tent has more poles and accessories but is still easy to set up. The price is much cheaper than the 10x20 canopy and is suitable for occasions such as outdoor weddings rather than marketplaces.

Car canopy

The car canopy is different from the first two types of tents in terms of the frame. The frame design is much simpler, presenting a large triangle. Whereas party tents and canopy tents usually have two points at the top. Again, it will take some time to set up.

Quictent 10x20 car canopy features

  • The top fabric material of the 10x20 car canopy is 180g PE, which is UV resistant and waterproof.
  • The frame is made of heavy-duty galvanized steel tubing with a thickness of 38mm. It is waterproof and rust-resistant. Stronger than a 10x20 party tent.
  • Comes with a reinforced base, pegs, and rope.
  • The poles are labeled with numbers for quick and easy installation.
  • This car canopy is not supplied with side walls to bring good air circulation.
  • The 10x20 car canopy weighs 79 lbs.

The frame of the car canopy is stronger than the party tent. It can be used outdoors for a long time in mild weather conditions but needs good reinforcement. 10x20 car canopy can be used not only as a temporary garage but also for storing a boat of the appropriate size.

Of course, it can also be used to create shelter for outdoor activities. Yet, it takes time to install so it is also not suitable for commercial occasions such as trade shows.
