I ordered the OZtrail Deluxe Gazebo on Tuesday afternoon - a run-of-the-mill, complication free ordering process, paying through PayPal. Early Friday afternoon a courier delivered it. Just one courier mind you, despite the clearly indicated ‘team lift’ recommendation. One long, thin cardboard box. Quite heavy - about 20kg according the web site, which sounds about right.
I was able to quite easily drag the box out to the backyard and with a bit of pushing & pulling, remove from the outer box … an inner box! On this was some sage advice:
Important: requires a minimum of 2 people to erect
So I very cleverly enlisted the help of my husband to erect the gazebo and my brother-in-law to take some photos/video.
The product description promises ‘Quick and easy assembly for 2 people’ and I have to say, it’s spot on. It was as simple as stretching out the frame (2 people pulling on diagonal opposites), putting the canopy on top (secured with velcro at the corners) and extending the legs to the desired height (there’s 3 height settings). Took no more than 10 minutes. And I imagine you could do it faster the second, third, fourth time around.
It would be difficult to erect by yourself, although not out the question, given the right amount of determination.
It’s really quite sturdy. I left it up and yesterday’s weather deteriorated to extreme rain and wind. This morning it looks as good as the day we erected it. Oh yes, I did stand under it during the rain and it was definitely waterproof … from above anyway, for sideways rain it might be worth investing in the walls!
My 20 month old gave it a pretty good going over, ramming in to legs and pulling on guy ropes and it held firm. Didn’t even look like falling down. I particularly like that the frame is all one piece - there’s no pieces that can ‘pop out’ and bring down the whole structure.
I think we’ll find many uses for this gazebo - as an extra sun/rain shelter for camping or for outdoor entertaining (the real challenge of kid’s birthday parties is keeping everyone out of the house!) It’s so easy to erect you could even take it along to a picnic to provide shade.
As for taking it down, it was a piece of cake. The hardest part for me was folding the canopy so it fit properly in to its pocket in the bag. Oh yes, and the guy ropes - I wish I knew how to tie them up in the tricky way they came. So much tidier ...

"Hats off to you guys for being such a great seller. Your site is very helpful and the service is fantastic! My wife and I took the gazebo out from its box to see how it looks and we didn't even have a hard time erecting it. We're pretty sure that it'll be a breeze the next time we assemble it for the event. Cheers! "
