RE: Awning ideas
I would call that an exceptional job on the awning.
For those (like me) without the skills, you might take a look at the awning that the Bus Depot sells for use with VW Camper Vans. They also have additional accessories that expand on the basic idea as well as ways to attach without having to drill holes etc. Here's one link, you will have to look around after you get there:

Look GREAT! Wish I had been possessed of your imagination and skills when I was using a trailer sans any awning or shelter!

My friend has the BusDepot awning. It is nice when assembled (it's a bear to assemble). The bus has a rain gutter so you don't have to worry about rain.


The Scamp has the drip rail over the door. That will help a little when it rains. Maybe someone should come up with a better drip/rain rail for the Scamp.

I don't mean to rain on any parade. The workmanship is stellar and the design is great! I like using whats available and you guys did a great job!

Nice job!

We don't attach our FirstUp to our Uhaul when we set it up as our canopy (really a screen room). We use the plastic rain drip catcher (I don't know the official name for this.) that we put around the top of the door. The metal for the FirstUp sits nicely in this.

We have the awning for our Eurovan that we have not ever used except to try it out. I wonder if it would work. It had some kind of attachment that connected to the rain gutter. We did not need it with the FirstUp. Looks like the same one as used for the VW bus.

I just ordered a 13' Scamp that I will be picking up in July and I think I am going to cancel the order for the awning. I like this idea much better and I am wondering if I can modify the tent canopy that I have to accomplish something similar to the one you have so cleverly created.
Scamp owners are so creative and I am learning so many things from joining this forum.

Adorable! great work. But have to ask, does it take both of you to set it up? Or can one person do it?

Thanks for the great ideas for awnings! I was thinking about what to do with our galley area and this was very helpful!
