Gimme shelter

Some thought went into plans to have a series of canopies attached to the van that were quick to put up and strongenough to withstand the elements. The pop-up gazebo was OK, but bulky and needed a bit of TLC as it was not as easy as it looks to put away. These plans were working on an idea using polytarp and a couple of uprights with guylines. There was also a plan for a tent hung from the open boot door (click here to see diagram).
