Wanderer Express Gazebo 3x3m $99.99 (Was $329) + Delivery ($0 C&C) @ BCF

170

Have been looking for a one person put-up gazebo and this is a version from a known brand on sale at BCF for 48hrs. Says save $230 but not sure if they ever sell at RRP. Some other gazebos on sale but not the same discount

Note lots of positive comments but some saying it is not waterproof, others about the quality of the poles. I think at $99 this would rate about the same as others in this budget category.

Don't forget discount gift cards.

    It's not just the comments that say it's not waterproof, the description does as well - says for shade only, not for wind and rain.

    • Yep, deal breaker for me.

      Unfortunately they all come with this annoying disclaimer. For anyone interested in something a bit more weatherproof, there's an anti-pooling one on special for $215.00 here: https://www.bcf.com.au/p/wanderer-anti-pooling-pro-gazebo-3x...

      Otherwise, for shade, there are gazebos going for just over $34 on catch.

      • Only all the ones at BCF - some others come with a water resistance rating and don't have this message, ie

        • Yeah, there must be a trade-off somewhere.

          A company may decide that replacing/refunding/placating is worth the extra sales from not putting potential customers off in the first place. They opt for 'cure' over 'prevention' and probably find that the risk is worth it for the bottom line.

          I mean I'd love to argue that their buyers are just more picky but most of the gazebos they sell are their own brand plus, as you mention, they don't give a disclaimer for any of the ones they sell, branded by them or others, including this one https://www.anacondastores.com/camping-hiking/tents/gazebos-... that is awarded the strong disclaimer by BCF. Anaconda even go on to claim that its canopy "acts as a waterproof barrier in harsh weather conditions".

          I mean, of course they're going to sell more gazebos to someone who's shopping around properly and is relieved that "someone finally sells weatherproof gazebos!". They probably realize that most people don't really care or have a basic grasp of the laws of physics and that being over-cautious can be costly, which is ultimately a bit dodgy - they really do oversell their gazebos if you read what they're saying.

          It's common knowledge that there's a difference between waterproof and water resistant yet the latter has been used as a selling point for cheaper watches for decades. What I'm confused about and I'm guessing isn't common knowledge is what does the 2000mm refer to?

  • This gazebo or the one from Supercheap?

    • The one from Ebay for $80 delivered.

  • What's the "packed size" of this? Some don't fit in the boot of a car/SUV

  • It's not waterproof, it's for shade only. From the product description:

    "PLEASE NOTE: The gazebo is designed to provide shade only. Do not use this gazebo in strong wind and rain. Wind and rain can damage the gazebo…"

    • The Supercheap one says the same thing so it's hard to decide between them both. *This gazebo is NOT a permanent structure and is designed to provide shade only. DO NOT use this gazebo in strong wind and rain.
