Pop up Coleman bug gazebo for season.

I injured my knee last year and three operation later it still stiff. I have decided for ease of mobility and one time set up I would go seasonal. Something I never tried before. Does it make sense to set up a portable gazebo and to leave it up. My concern is it may get blown away by wind.

Its like anything else that is portable if you anchor it properly it will more then likely stay standing. I leave a portable carport standing all year long just have extra heavy anchors on all side tubes.

Thanks Seadog, I was sort of leaning in that direction. Pick up some good dog screw type hold downs, maybe go over the roof with four ropes and secure to the ground in addition to built in tie points. Maybe even use the TT as a tie down point.

Most portable awnings have metal tie points inside that will keep the frame from blowing away and the screw in anchors work great.

Depending on the type of gazebo, just add some extra tie downs. We have left one up in the back yard all summer and it survived some storms that has us headed for the storm shelter.
