Instant canopies make it easy to put up a bit of shade, no matter where you happen to need it. In a matter of minutes, you can have a canopy up, whether you want to protect a picnic table or a spot by the beach. Some of the canopies available are quite large covering a 13x13 foot space. Others are small enough that a single person can get them up alone.
Camping World stocks a significant number of instant canopies. Packing one in your camper is a good plan since you never know what the weather will bring. From now on, every picnic will be safe.
