They are a neat idea. I would have to commit surgery to it, needs a 2nd door and be 7' tall to butt up against my ParkLiner

Hi Frank,

Now that you've owned it for a bit, would you post and let us know what you think of it? I've read where a few have not been happy with it and think it's stitching isn't sufficient or that there are some problems with them being shipped inside out....am interested in your findings.

Thanks! -V

This photo is my trailer with my rope & pole awning. It takes me all of 5 minutes to set it up by myself. It packs small, and I love it. I installed a white awning rail using butyl tape and rivets.
Pam,

Curious about the awning rail...you said you used rivets? Did the rivet go thru both hulls? Or.....does your unit NOT have a double hull? Thanks!

I got mine within days but it actually was inside out. Called the company and they shipped out a new one same day. Also arranged for UPS to come and pick up defective one. Got the new one today but haven't opened it up yet.

We got ours, used it and love it. Spent 5 days in the Adirondacks July 4th weekend protected from skeeters, black flies and no seeums! Very easy to set up and tear down. Stakes from the inside, and in heavy winds that blew lots of other folks stuff over, ours didn't budge.

Mine works nice enough for sun shade, but want something more robust for rain protection.... sadly mine usually collapses from heavy rain. Over the 4th of july, my friends 10x10 ez up style blew over and broke...I kept their top when they were going to toss it. I'm thinking about making a pattern out of it and this winter make a cover out of a vintage style sunbrella canvas. Add a piece of sunbrella to go over the top of the ParkLiner like Hazel's one held in place with bungies or straps and be able to add a screen wall or sides but be able to get it snugged up close to my ParkLiner.

I'm looking into installing a roller awning on my SD17 like motorhomes use. Not really worried about weight but need to find the arms that will clear the belly band. Really like to be able to unroll and close it up quickly.

ParkLiner is putting these on as an option I guess. Take a gander, would probably work for you...

Really Deryk? We had torrential downpours late afternoon and evening July 3, right after we had set up camp. No problems with the Clam. Then we had major winds one night, blew over our neighbors screen tent, lots of limbs down etc. Clam never moved.



Plus I like the Gander Mtn. canopy thing, that also survived weird weather with no problems.

Frank, just wondering what wind speeds your talking about.

Ya know Dave, I don't know for sure, but our neighbors screen tent went over, tents collapsed in the tent area, tree limbs were down all over the place, but we did not have a problem.

The Clam sides are under some tension which I think helps. We also staked everything well. We've been tent campers for 40 years before we started this travel trailer stuff!

We bought a bag of stakes at Bass Pro that I use for the bottom skirt grommets on the CLAM 1660. With the wind panels in place or in higher wind speeds, I figured that the stakes and ropes that are supplied with the CLAM could then be used with the black loops/tabs that are attached to the hubs in the middle of each side. I hoped that would provide quite a bit of stability for high wind situations.

To provide additional shade and protection from the wind and rain, we got two of the 3-panel accessory wind panel kits from Amazon (that is where we purchased the CLAM). The six wind panels can turn the 1660 screen room into a fully enclosed tent (or partially, I suppose) for more sleeping/lounging space or maybe a partitioned off porta-potti spot?
