Yurt Dome and Tent Testimonials - 2010
If you are considering buying a Shelter Systems' portable, waterproof living or gardening structure, we think you'll find these letters and photographs informative as well as enjoyable. They were sent to us by satisfied people who've bought and used our structures for many varying purposes.
I spoke with Jeff and he has not shipped the floor for the 31x16 tent yet. It is still being made. Jeff said he will have it out this week.
Attached are some pictures from the wind caving in the side of the tent and then popping back out.
I was able to catch it on video, but the file is to large to email.
Thank you for your help. Maintenance Supervisor
Just wanted to let you know that the combination of the 20 foot half-dome and 8x12 foot intellistage system worked fantastic. We got lots of compliments on the dome/stage system.
The 20 foot half-dome performed beyond my expectations. Not only did it protect us (the performers) and our equipment from the sun (by provided outstanding shade), it acted as a portable amphitheater. I have played out-doors dozens of times, and each time the music "disappears" around you on stage. It is almost like you a playing by yourself, while the other musicians are playing very softly in the background. This was not the case with playing in the 20 foot half-dome tent. The sound in the half-dome was like playing in our rehearsal studio. Playing in your half-dome was the best out-door performance experience I have had as a musician in the 30 years I have been doing out-door performances.
The dome was a snap to set up. Two of us had the dome erected and staked down in 15 minutes. Tear down and packing up the tent was only a 5 minute process for three of us. There were 25 - 30 mph gusts of wind happening during the day, but the dome was flexible enough to handle these winds. Most of the wind was blowing against the back and sides of the half-dome.
The intellistage was quick and easy to set up. It was only 17 minutes from the time two of us started unloading the stage pieces to having a fully assembled stage, with equipment being set up on it. I believe the stage was a significant part of creating the "on stage" audio performance acoustic environment. In addition to all the advantages of having a 16" high stage, it was amazingly comfortable to stand on. In fact, in the 30 years I have been performing, my feet have NEVER felt as relaxed at the end of a 4 hour performance. That is NOT an exaggeration. I noticed that the stage surface has a little bit of flex, which I think is a major factor for my feet.
Once again, thanks to all of you for providing outstanding products that make performing more fun! Hope you enjoy the photos. If you want to use them on your web site, feel free to do so.
I want to thank John again for going above and beyond the call of duty to help get the intellistage to us in North Dakota ahead of schedule. It is not the end of the world, but you can see it from here.

Just a quick update on the status of the tents we purchased from you. All but the last 251 tents arrived Sunday in Lake Maracaibo. I understand the initial reaction is they are quite pleased with these tents. By our calculations, they should provide shelter for up to almost 10,000 people left homeless by the recent floods.

It has been a pleasure working with such professionals to ensure the success of this humanitarian endeavor.

Not sure if I have emailed you to tell you I received my 10ft Playa dome and I am a happy camper. I have set it up twice and I must say it goes together very easy. I did it by myself once and once with another person. Also, like the construction. Was planning to ship it out the Reno, but now after seeing the packaging size I think we will just check it as luggage on the flight out to BM. So thanks. Will send more pic at BM when it's over.
Also, I am a website developer and I am thinking you site could use a face lift. As you my remember, I found you site confusion at times and I know it could be better organized. So, if you guys have any interest in giving your site a face life, at a very good price I might add, let me know.
