I'm Andy Macias - retired military officer, engineer, and creator of Gutterpy
The idea for Gutterpy was born out of necessity. After leaving the military, I started Tailgate Cruiser – a party rental company that delivered tailgating equipment to sports fans in Washington, DC. I was spending too much time repairing pop-up tents damaged by the rain and needed a product that didn’t fail so easily. Such a thing didn’t exist so it was up to me to build one.
I taught myself to sew watching YouTube videos and experimented with all sorts of different designs till I got it just right. Months later with a soaring water bill and cracked hands, I finally completed Gutterpy.
Retail tents available in stores or online are boring and unreliable. I wanted to build a tent that looked and functioned unlike anything else on the market. That's why Gutterpy tents come in a variety of colors and cool patterns you’ve never seen before on a canopy.
The patented gutter system is built into the canopy and drains the rain water to keep it from pooling and falling over the sides. The frames are corrosion-resistant and built like a tank. The canopies are reinforced along the seams making them strong and lightweight. We can fully customize a tent to suit your personal or business needs so that your brand is eye-catching and remains memorable.
