Not all of us have a giant 4X4 to cart our gear around in, which is why Oztrail have come with a smaller, and more boot-friendly shelter option in the form of the Compact Gazebo.
Just because this gazebo is smaller, it doesn’t mean they’ve scrimped on features. The UVtex 2000 treatment on the canopy protects the material from the sun’s rays, while also doubling as a waterproof barrier. The canopy seams are heat taped to protect against leaks and the pre-attached guy ropes will help keep you shelter steady in the wind.
The arms are curved for additional strength, and the legs and struts are heavy duty to add to the overall robustness of the structure. The Compact Gazebo is also fast and easy to set up with two height positions that can easily be adjusted.
The ideal smaller gazebo for market stalls, picnics, outings, barbeques, or sporting events – the Oztrail Compact Design delivers protection from the elements without a compromise on features.
The 2.4m size is ample, but the big plus of this gazebo is that it is compact enough to fit in the boot of a small car. No more folding seats down!
This smaller gazebo is great to take to dog trials when I'm by myself. Initially found it a bit hard to put up, until a friend showed me to extend the frame out as far as possible & then duck underneath it and push upwards. Love it!!
This gazebo is ultra compact and made packing to go so much easier. It is smaller than a traditional one but it suits our needs just as well. Very easy to put up and take down. Snowy's always gets their products out super fast, it was here in no time. Very happy camper!
Great shelter. Easy to erect, sturdy. Very useful when we got caught in the snow! Highly recommend.
G'day Jacki - thanks for your review. I can't believe it... snow already?!? We're only in April... I hope you've got some cozy sleeping bags for the Canberra winter. Laine :)
Held in high winds and was super easy to put up and down on a beach and park
The gazebo was a little difficult to set up initially, but with a little perseverance got it up and it does the job we bought it for perfectly
I bought this gazebo as I was told that I could erect myself, but absolutely no way can I do so.
I can put up my extra large gazebo on my own, but go to half its size and no go, it will not stretch out so no way can I get it up.
Whats the point, total waste of money for me.
This was suppose to be my cover when travelling around as it would fit into my car boot..
Very disappointing, just glad I tried before left on trip, but unfortunately have left too long to return.
Sorry you are having problems with your Gazebo Denise, we'd be interested to know about the difficulties you are experiencing. Although easier with two people, most gazebos can be erected by an individual with a little perseverance. The first time they are set up is usually the hardest, so I recommend getting someone to help set it up before your trip. Leave it set up for a day and then give it another go by yourself. Don't hesitate to call us if you have any further concerns. ~ Ben
Great size for me, can assemble it on my own if I have to. This is my third one.
The metal pins don't pop out and therefore the gazebo can't go up to full height - this problem occurred on the 2nd use making it useless. We have been using gazebos almost every weekend for years at dog shows, This one became useless within 2 weeks. Very disappointing and frustrating.
G'day Sue, that would've been such a let-down! We're sorry that your gazebo is having some issues. I must say that we love the Oztrail gazebo range - based on their durability, though the pin not locking is a problem we've come across once or twice before. Would it be possible to give us a call on 1300 914 007, we'd like to do everything we can to fix the problem. Hopefully talk to you soon!
Lightweight (easily lifted by one person )
Portable (the bag has wheels which make it easy to transport)
Large (big enough for 2 people and 2 dogs)
The not so good, but not bad either:
Requires at least two people to set up
It's a bit stiff to set up at the moment. I expect it will become easier the more we use it.
Hi What is the difference between the compact and the deluxe in the 2.4m. I have had a green one and would like to be sure the blue one comes with a wheeled bag and is the same size packed.
I've just checked for you, and the Deluxe Compact Gazebo from Ozrail has a thicker canopy, a more reinforced frame, and packs up a little bigger than the Compact Gazebo - so basically the Compact Gazebo is a more lightweight version.
The Deluxe Compact Gazebo is 135L x 27W x 22H cm packed, while the Compact Gazebo is 97L x 20W x 26H cm, and both gazebo models come with their own wheeled carry bags.
