Default Tent worries......

My hubby purchased me a tent for Christmas. Love him for that! My question to you ladies is, does it being white REALLY matter that much? I've participated in a handful of outdoor shows and so far there have been no rules about them being white. How often have you come across that they HAVE to be white? He bought a light brown tent, beige or so. I haven't opened it yet due to this fact. When I asked him if they had a white one he said yes but that one was $100 more. UGH. Can I pick your brains? Thanks.

Most of the outdoor shows I did last year required white tents. Some of the smaller shows I did did not have requirements and I saw tents of all colors there. I would say IF you can get it exchanged for white, I would consider it that way you are covered.

I've only had shows with size requirements not color restrictions.

I have a blue one

What I wouldn't give for a white one.

I haven't run into any problems with not being able to use it, but it's so drab inside and it's hard to see the colors of things properly.

If you've got the extra $$, I'd definitely get the white one.

I have a blue tent but I have wanted to do some shows that state you have to have a white tent. I really want a white tent as well.

There are a few shows I have attended that require a white tent. If you plan on doing a variety of shows, you might want to consider upgrading. That way, you know you'll always be in compliance.

I will say though that having a white tent, it gets dirty. This week I am having to pull mine out and wash it down. I would check though to make sure the one you have is flame retardant, as almost all of my shows require that.

Do you have a sams club or know someone who has a membership there? I purchased my ez-up (same brand as yours, but the heavy duty white) there for 199.

Last spring Sam's Club had a white tent that was an EZ-Up but it also had three sides that could zip onto it to make 'walls'. The whole set-up was about $199.
