Kevin put some kind of gutter over the door on our Uhaul. Our FirstUp fits and sits into that groove when we prop it against the door. Granted it does not stop all water, but it keeps a lot out, because it keeps it tighter. We have wind curtains that we use for lighter rain and even too much sun, in addition to the bug screens. When it is raining hard, Kevin covers the whole screenhouse with tarps. We had a storm at Blue Licks, KY last summer that knocked out the campground water due to a fallen tree, but our screenhouse was nice and dry. We like camping with it, as it gives us so much more room. We just got back from a week and a half when we did not put it up. We survived, but we are happier when we don't have to assign the end of the camper that one of us can be at and have the advantage of the additional space.

Just a ramble on the way through : )

Cari and i had a Napier Outdoors brand "Sportz Truck Tent"

(_link to similar model we had in 2007_) They have various sizes and for some who are into more off-grid style having a two room tent attached might be the ticket.

And here is a side view attached to rig...could this be the side of an egg with some sort of rain gutter attached for the fabric tunnel to grip?...

We loved ours out the back of the truck canopy on our Tacoma.

I know on our model the vestibule/tunnel was ~6'W x ~6H with about ~15% more flex room if needed due to go over full sized pickup. We tested it on the back of our Van and it fit snug around the hole back end of our full size chevy and we could open one or both doors. It might just be big enough for use around our relatively small egg-doors(?). When not attached to the rig it is a fully functional tent.
