It’s almost August and dare we say it (gasp) – the kids are getting ready to head back to school! You had a whole summer of pie-eating-fireworks-lighting-smores-making fun under your KD kanopy tent with them, so it’s hard to believe that they won’t be lounging about the house aimlessly any … Continue reading “Back to School with KD Kanopy”

First came the wheel and then came the hexagon. We’ve been heaping so much praise on all of our uniquely shaped tents that we thought we’d keep it up with the KD Kanopy Hexagon.

We at KD Kanopy don’t like to play favorites with our tents, but for just this once, we’re going to give a bit of praise to our StarTwin canopy. Why?

Over the years, we’ve sold a lot of Majestic tents (and we mean a lot). In fact, it’s our top-selling canopy. They’ve been everywhere from your backyard to trade shows to outdoor festivals to ticket booths. What we’re saying is this is a really versatile tent. So versatile that it … Continue reading “It’s Movie Time, Featuring: the Majestic Series”

Ah, the sounds of summer: the music of the ice cream truck, the cicadas singing their deafening song, and the wild shouts of “Fore!” as rouge golf balls fly about the course.

Ever wonder why KD Kanopy makes such quality tents? It’s probably because we’re always on the move! In 2011 alone, we’ve been to Las Vegas three separate times! But it’s not all fun and games, oh no, because we’re on a whirlwind, year-long, tour of expos. Sure, our tents are … Continue reading “Where in the World is KD Kanopy?”
