Mounting Kit for Side Tent, Awning, Add-A-Room

If you were willing to spend a little less you could probably make one of these work for you. I have the yellow one and when wetted before locking I can't pull it off, no way no how.

I had an "add-a-room" that came with small Taos popup. I thought it was a cool bonus to get for free with the popup as they cost a lot of money.
I set it up once in my yard to see how it works. Turns out it takes so much time and effort to set it up that I never bothered to so do again.

Now, I do really like an awning attached to the trailer itself. I hope to figure out a nice solution for my Scamp16 within the upcoming camping season.

Tom I love that fact that we can use suction cups. I have already found many uses for the large plastic ones. But these are way cool. Funny how little things are so enjoyable, especially on a snowy day!

We bought this several years ago at wally world for 90 $ or so. Even came with bug mesh for all 4 sides. I understand it doesnt deal with your interest as far as angles etc. But a something that created a connection to the trailer and doubled as a gutter to run the water back or forward might be a viable option.
Works good in light rain, bug screen works very well and replacement materials are available for it along with privacy panels.

No Gary I don't have a link, sorry. I would imagine there might be something on each manufacturers website. The only ones I know about are the Landers and the Biods, both European. I've heard the shelters are "expensive," but that's subjective when compared to needs/wants.

Euro type shelters

Thanks Donna. I have been looking and searching without any luck. I am just curious, not in the market. Been leaning towards one I saw on busdepot.com.
Only 119.00 plus mounting hardware. Thanks again, GaryG

Here you go Gary:
Caravan Awnings

I was considering one of these for a Scamp I had, but the shipping cost I was quoted was crazy high.

Probably the same kind I posted a link for in post #2. T@b does the same thing.

Anyone here a former T@B owner that can chime in?

Busdepot has some that say they can be mounted to anything. But it isn't too clear from their info exactly how.
