You’re a LSU Tiger fan and you want a tailgating tent/shelter that stands out from the sea of four legged pop-up tents. No matter what tailgating climate you tailgate in, whether it be hot and sunny in the early part of football season or rainy and windy in the winter months, your tailgate party guests are going to want some sort of shelter. Four-legged pop-up tents are the standard in tailgating parking lots but they can be big, bulky, cumbersome, take two people to set up and take up entirely too much room in your vehicle. Introducing the Retractable Awning Canopy Company (RACC) and their new tailgating canopy eliminates a lot of the hassles associated with standard, four leg tailgating tents. The best part is, the RACC is officially licensed to use LSU’s logos.

The first thing you will notice is that the RACC never makes contact with the ground. It appears as if it is “floating” off the back of your tailgating vehicle. How it achieves this is by attaching itself to the roof rack system on the top of your car. It requires no legs or guy wires and can be deployed by a single person in about two minutes. Another benefit to tailgaters is that the RACC rides to and from the game on top of your your car, freeing up valuable space on the inside for a bigger cooler, more chairs for friends, etc. You can see from the above photo that the coverage area of the RACC is comparable to the other 9′ x 9′ pop-up tents you see in tailgating lots.
Have you ever struggled putting up a four-legged pop-up tent all by yourself? It is especially difficult setting it up by yourself on grass because the legs tend to dig into the turf and do not slide very easily. I was sent a sample RACC and tried it out on my Lincoln Navigator. I was able to deploy the RACC all by myself and was very pleased with how easy it was. I will admit that after years of using a regular pop-up tent it did take me a few minutes to get my mind around the concept of a tailgating tent and not having to walk around tent legs. To get an idea of how the RACC goes on your tailgating vehicle, how it is deployed and how to pack it back up, I highly encourage you to see these two demo videos.
If you are not an LSU fan or you are a fan of another team, the RACC comes in other colors and teams. You can see all the other schools and colors available by clicking HERE.
