Very nice setup, I even like the color. Was just in GM Saturday night, for some reason I didn't look at the canopy section. I have several large tent rainflys (rainflies?) that I got in the clearance bin at Eureka!, with cross-poles they would look very similar to this. Will have to dig them out and play a bit.

One thing I've been considering is that the edges of the material should be cut in a catenary curve like this one. Keeps tension on the edge and prevents a lot of flapping in the wind.

That's a nice setup. Looks like it gives a large shade area!

Nice to see a "no new holes" option for an awning. I am partial to vintage style awning but this solution is so much less expensive and does the job!

Thumbs up

mine is on the way also...
we will have to watch it closely as our favorite areas are at river's edge in narrow mountain cuts...quite windy nearly every afternoon. But if we can use it to keep the inch worms (we're usually under trees) off the Rocket Stove when preparing a meal...priceless!

Cheers,
thom

the first time my wife noticed them it was to late for the morning meal being cooked on the stove...& it was sort of funny watching her from a distance realize what the white _sprinkles_ were on the bacon!

I'm glad they went back on sale for some of you, just hope it works out as its still in the experimental stage. But I figure for 45.00 I'll give it a try and if it doesn't work out I'm not out much at all. Thanks Carl for letting everyone know they went back on sale, Brian did tell me they were. But you beat me to it on posting it.

Yes, Tim, I figure for 45 bucks, we'll still be able to use it at school functions, etc., even if we later opt for the vintage fabric awning later down the line.

FYI - Just found out that going to Gander Mtn via the ebates.com portal will net you a 4% rebate, plus there is a code GMTN10 for 10 off $100. I picked up some water floaties for the littles and Rome Pie Irons that I've been coveting for a while as they are on sale, too. Hmm... spend money to save money

Good deal Mimi and the pie irons are always a hit camping.

This looks like a good idea. The local GM store is holding one for me. I don't have a dining fly/EZ-up of any kind right now, so even if this doesn't play well w/ the scamp, it will be useful to have on hand. Will let everybody know how it works out tomorrow.
