Review: Quechua Gazebo with Locks

The gazebo is without doubt an item more and more present in family camping. An alternative to the old tarps, tents dispensing the presence of trees to stretch the cover come gaining more and more elements for the practicality and the comfort of the camp. There you can house the kitchen, the living room and the rainy winds camper, cold or mosquitoes. The Quechua 3 × 3 gazebo sent by the Decathlon to MaCamp to our professional analysis.

Gazebo 3 m X 3 m model has an old dream of consumption of older campers: the four closings ensuring airtight insulation of the exterior that protects the camper from rain and insects.

Question also dreamed of back in the day, the gazebo has all your sobreteto Quechua and nylon locks, even used in tents from ensuring softness of its lightness and cloths, besides being more compact in time. Has the four sturdy metal support rods as well as the four horizontal inter-travamentos superiors. The central dome is guaranteed by bending of two traditional igloo tents rods that are embedded in the structure of the gazebo and positioned in the sobreteto for 4 small Velcro. Its light color ensures less absorption of the Sun’s heat. Vertical rods are involved for the same coverage cloth ensuring a drawing environment and harboring the zippers that secure locks. The four can be independently and easily coupled the optional equipment.

Two locks have mosquito nets with possibility of internal closure on rainy days. There’s no need to leave the gazebo to close them. The other two are fully closed and these two settings in pairs can be positioned in the way that the camper you want. Some pampering are present in the equipment, as middle hook to hang a lamp and other sides to aid in the camp

Mounting: First separate the four vertical rods that are easily identified by the gray rubber feet that have the metal and the anchoring holes for the espeques. Then separate the horizontal rods. Two of them are the three forks. Some colored markings on the tips of the stems and forks help correct assembling of the structure. A all metal rods as thick without fear. Initially a fall or the other will fall, and even the set may be wrong, but at the end everything will be properly upright. Do not stick the espeques yet. After the initial positioning of the structure it is time to put the rods take the cover fitting your hollow points in the “spits” already caught in forks. They will be arched down anyway. There is time to play a cover over positioning the reinforced corners gazebo Pitchforks and stretching the elastic strap of the tips below on hooks anchored at the foot of structure. It’s time to assemble the four closings if these are not yet fixed. They shall define the correct attachment and detachment of the gazebo to feet, then toggle them on the floor with the espeques included. Once this is done, it’s time to up the rails and fixed them in the four Velcro. Then remove the locks that you want.

The four espeques that are left aren’t there for nothing. Also the four strings with stretchers. They must be used for the mooring of the gazebo from the four upper extremities, staking the moorings on the floor on a slope of 45 degrees of the cord. This will give the necessary support to wind blows, high winds and even for total watertightness of the sobreteto during the rains. Also in the tents, the strings of mooring should not be ignored by more than the equipment appears self-supporting enough.

Pouch surprised on quality. In addition, two buckles straps guarantee an auxiliary pressure closing in zipper strength resulting in firmness of the set. Yes, the equipment is heavy, but when it comes to something specific to the family camp that usually is served by own vehicle, no problem. The case of the structure is reinforced and filled with foam making sure you don’t tear or injure the tissues bringing extra comfort in the use of the camper. Has a closing of type “envelope” very cool. The espeques also come with a nylon bag and the instruction manual is the traditional Quechua, in material that does not tear and not water stuck in the sewing bag avoiding the loss.

As a suggestion of our analysis, the equipment would become ideal if told with two schemes, one in each of the two locks without mosquito nets. The first could receive a second zipper on ARC starting from the tips and making half of it in order to receive a tent igloo or 2 seconds in capsized gazebo (which most campers already does) guaranteeing the isolation of the remainder is left open. The other lock, could be made a zippered access door also for that it wasn’t necessary to opening so big to lock in or out.
