1 Reviews of the Shade Grabber
By: JohnTerry Reason: I own(ed) one Made in: 2017 Rating: Date: 12/01/2021
I bought the Shade Grabber in a 50% off sale and it's proved a useful addition to my Robens Fairbanks adding plenty of extra porch space and nicely protecting the tent's entrance/porch.
Stability in the wind is OK but I have had to take it down, just in case, in 'medium' winds despite these hardly ruffling the tent. I think it would be marginally better if attached to one of the intended tents from e.G. The Dreamer range.
The version pictured just has a single (but substantial) alloy pole at the front. I think some versions had an additional pole at the back. For this reason (just one pole) plus the high full price cost, I've awarded it 8/10. I use a pad from a rolled-up T-shirt to spread the load around the single pole and will replace this with a dense foam pad next time.
I use additional guy lines, some shock-corded, to increase stability, and oversized tent pegs to prevent them from working loose. Before my next outing, I plan to reinforce the fabric area that stretches over the top point of the Fairbanks with a double layer of heavy-duty ripstop nylon.
I can recommend the Shade Grabber whether you own one of the tents it's intended for or you just want a quirky fix for your tent.

The latest Shade Grabber universal canopy is designed to fit the Midnight Dreamer and Double Dreamer. It provides additional sheltered living space that features side walls for enhanced protection from wind and rain. The side walls feature panels that can be unzipped and rolled up in fine weather to catch the breeze while providing shade. Ground level tension tapes and adjustable roof straps ensure a tight connection to the tent.
