We're in the market for a Gazebo and are tossing up between the Ridge Ryder Deluxe and the Oz Trail Deluxe both 3 x 3. Not having seen either set up, going only by the research I've done, I just can't decide between them. The Ridge Ryder has air vents on the top, which I was told is not good in driving rain. Wanting to hear experiences, particularly of the Ridge Ryder as I haven't heard a lot about it. Has anyone got/had one? How long have you had it? How much has it been used? Has it stood the test in windy conditions? What's the life expectancy? Thanks for you reviews.

Go whichever one that has struts that run from the peak down the ridge lines as well as midway along the sides as otherwise in rain they all seem to bell with the water and end up bending and breaking.

Have a look at Altegra, I have used these at Farmers' Markets.
They are certainly stronger and better able to cope with wind gusts than Oz Trail.
The drawer back is that they are more expensive and somewhat heavier but definitely stronger.

Hope this helps.

Pretty much all of them will ended up in a twisted mess in strong wind regardless of how well they are tied down.
