    Anybody know of a REPUTABLE website or place to order a Texans canopy/gazebo? I've had a hard time online and no stores down in South Texans carry them. Any help would be appreciated!

    TEXANS canopies are a ripoff because of the licensing fees. I am making numbers up but for examplke a 10x10 blue canopy is $100. A 10x10 Texans canopy is $175.

    But if that doesn't bother you, a lot of retail stores sell them online.

    Kind of like how a regular flag is 10 dollars but an Ohio State flag is $40?

    I am also making up numbers.

    ...and a U of H flag is $50 (go figure?)....

    What I meant was if you want a canopy you will use a lot, they break and and I reccommend a generic one. However, if it'll just be used a few times a year and he wants to show off his Texans' pride, go for it!

    Go to Acadamy and get the heavy duty EZ up, Like Teds. They last and are well built and if yo want the canopy customized then have your wife do it. We had a Texans canopy and it held together like this years defense, I will just say we had to replace it before the year was through. For quality you really need to go with the heavier duty canopies.

    Agree with Joe. Our 10x20 EZ Ups were ordered online...about 1100 each...but have lasted 5 years now. Not cheap but worth it. We got dark blue and they should last another 5 seasons at least. You can even get repair kits for them.

    I have 2 'weekender' 12 x 12's, I think $150 each. I lose one a year, they tend to last 2 seasons.
