Canopy suggestions please

Hi,
We are going to be staying in one of our favorite spots in the NC mountains this summer for at least a 6 week stretch. I'd like to get a nice area set up outside the door of the camper. Looking for a strong canopy that will give me the least amount of headaches.
Anyone have suggestions/links about their favorites?
Thanks!
Mike

We have the Clam pop up shelter. Easy up in 30 seconds. We have the 12x12 like this one except it's dark green. We take ours everywhere. Also has accessories like side panels to purchase separate. Made really well. Here is one on amazon similar to ours.

That Clam looks really nice. Setup is quick. How is take-down, as easy as set up?

Take down is just as easy. Also all corners are reinforced. Only advice I can give is when using I made 12" spikes from Rebar and had large washers welded to the top. The spikes that come with it are not so great. There is metal reinforced rings to stake down.

We picked up a great unit from true value for $100 when they have them on sale. 12x12 with tons of shade. I don't like anything less, we tried smaller ones.
