Clam Portable Outdoor Gazebo Shelter

Look! Next to the Beaubeaux’s Airstream!

Is it a dog enclosure? a dining room? a garage? Yes, yes and yes! It’s the super, Clam Quickset!

One person alone can set it up in less than five minutes. With two people it’s even faster.

Folds down to 8″ x 8″ x 72″ and slips easily in and out of the truck bed. It can contain our inflated kayaks on the trailers, our bikes, cooler and folding table all at once. When rain is predicted, we put everything in The Clam. So easy.

This rugged outdoor shelter protects us and our gear from sun, wind, rain, bugs and dust. Perfect for the park, beach or campsite – the lightweight case with strap handles make it easy to tote the Clam Quick Set over short distances.

We’ve had it since April 2019 and now we wonder how we ever managed without a Clam Quickset.

Comes in several colors, but not all colors are available all the time.

We have found that using it during hot weather, we have to open up all the windows to try to get the clam cooler inside. It can get hot inside when the temperature outside it high. Putting a small 12 volt rechargeable fan inside can make a huge difference.

For light in the evening, we have a Luci Light, which is a solar powered inflatable light that lights up the entire inside of the Clam.

We’re not sure what wind conditions the Clam Quickset can hold up to but (in the video below) we have clocked it standing up to 20 mph gusts at Maumee Bay State Park. Maybe it can handle more than that. Someday we will probably find out. Many campers ask us about this tent – most call it a yurt – and say they’ve never seen a tent handle the wind so efficiently.

Here is a video from December 2020 at Gulf State Park in Gulf Shores Alabama showing the Clam handling sustained constant wind of 25 mph and gusts up to 35 mph using the water tubes for stability.

January 2022 Update: Well, we tested our Clam in sustained winds of 30 mph and wind gusts more than 50 mph and the wind won. Tore the Clam to pieces…totally. Lesson learned. the Clam does have its limits We immediately bought another one.
