Hi Everyone,
Our first campout with the new awning, thought you might like to see these.
Hopefully, the pictures will come through OK!
The awning worked really well, (although we didn't get to test it in a downpour), the size and shape was perfect for our 13' Scamp.
This is the Kelty Deluxe Carport.

Hi Gina,
Yes, that's what I like about it. It isn't bug-proof, but it is private. The poles that hold it up are not adjustable, so it is either a canopy, or all the way down to the ground, just as shown in the pictures.
And the windows can be covered for privacy, or open (with screens) for ventilation.

Hi Sharon in Seattle,
The cutie is my daughter, and helper, and camper in training.
My Scamp came with two large hooks on the outside, probably for the old awning. I laid the Kelty awning cross-bar in the hooks, and secured with the velcro strips that are part of the awning. The velcro strips slide along the cross bar, so the spacing of the hooks was not very important, but I think the closer they are to the other poles (perpendicular to the trailer) the better. Check photo...
If you don't have anything to attach the awning to, maybe something can be attached to your trailer? You would just have to be sure that the door could swing open without hitting the awning.
Good luck!
Marjie in NY

Hi,
Glad you like the awning....but it doesn't come cheap! The best price I could find was online through Costco (borrowed a friends membership number). Does Canada have Costco? Actually, it wasn't the absolute best price, but if I didn't like it I could return it to a store near me.
There are several sites online that carry this awning. There are several versions, this is the Large Kelty Deluxe Carport.
I paid around $280. including shipping and tax. I can't remember exactly.
So, do an online search and see what you can find....

Hello folks,
I always feel badly when I see an item I just bought at a cheaper price. However, at risk of hurting Marjie's feelings and in the interest of sharing, just recieved a Sierra trading post flyer that has two similar items (that look smaller) by Kelty at $140 and $170. Their site is sierratradingpost.com, item #'s 88172 and88173.

Hi George,
I am a regular customer of Sierra Trading Post, and that is where I originally saw the awning. I know they often have closeouts, and so I researched the awning (to try and find it cheaper somewhere else), and then found mine.
The one at Sierra is a different model. They are smaller, the windows are different ( no side windows, poorer ventilation), the sides do not come down to make a room on one, and neither one can be made into a canopy -
We really liked the option of a room and canopy, so we opted for the Deluxe.
But thanks for pointing this out for everyone - Sierra is a great source of stuff.
Marjie
A quick check shows that I paid $230. with shipping, and tax.

Hi: Yep Marjie we have Costco...I don't have a membership but it might be worth getting one... My son is working for a Camping Outfitter in Ottawa and I will check with him to see if he can source a Large Kelty Deluxe Carport there. Thanks for the info

HI everyone! We purchased one from REI when they had a 20% off of 1 item for members....we did this before we saw this post. We are attaching it to our 13 ft burro, and we may end up running straps around the camper for now. We may get brave and put some anchors in the top of the side, or the roof. But it works well!!!!! We will put it to the test this next week @ Acadia.... Maine tends to have plenty of rain and FOG! I'll keep u posted! k

I have a 13' burro also and was wondering how you ended up fastening it to the trailer. Doesn't it end up leaking from the trailer?

Hi,
Sorry about the delay replying...we have been on the road!
Our Scamp had two hooks along the roof, possibly for attaching an simple style awning? Not sure...but they came in handy for attaching the Kelty. The velco straps slide along the upper pole and could be adjusted for the width of the hooks.
The only problems have been that yes, in a downpour, the water comes down between the top of the awning and the trailer. So, we just move stuff away from the side, or leave only weatherproof things there, like the cooler.
I'm thinking of adding a waterproof strip of tarp or plastic to fill that area, but haven't gotten there yet...
Marjie
