Outdoor canopy tents are super useful, but like all good things they come to an end. However, what usually gives first is the canopy itself. It can grow old, rip, fade, get moldy, or simply come apart from regular exposure to the elements.
Usually, the frame remains intact and may be good for several more years, so it doesn't make the most sense to throw it all out and be done with it. The icecaps are melting as it is, the last thing our world needs is another wasteful sonofagun disposing of a perfectly fixable product!
