Side Tent

Here's a tent we tried out over the weekend. It's great for the wife's dark-thirty nature calls. We dubbed it the "Jenny Loo."

Lotsa bang for the buck....Always liked those beach cabanas as beach cabanas, now that I realize they double up so well, I like them even better.

Found a real bargain today at Gander Mountain. They had "auto awnings" on closeout for $6.24 each. They will fit on the back of a pick up or on the side of the TD...... pretty nifty.... waiting til Saturday to actually try it on the trailer..... It will fit a 10 by 10 EZ- up also. We thought about being able to add a tarp or curtain to the open side and use it for a changing room. If you need something like this, you might check the G.M store near you.

Tear Fan, I just posted about something so I could sleep with one door open.. that's exactly what I was looking for!! How long did it take to set that up? Did it fit fairly closely?

rileydog -

That took about 3 minutes to put together, and packed down very small. A good lightweight option. Have since sold it to Doc and Marsha in Chattanooga. Now using a Coleman Shelter 15 (see picture link below signature line) with side walls, and have figured out how to rig up a "potty screen" with one of them. All in all, the side tent shown is a good solution. Not really tight - won't keep out the bugs - but for three seasons it is good.


Hope that gives you what you need to know.

Arne -

Try the Destin, Little Talbot, or South Meets North sets. There were several at that last set.

I also have the auto shade from Gander Mountain. I attached the canopy over my hatch and then connect it to the Gander Mountain version of an
E Z up. That gives me a 10 X 20 foot area off the back of the Galley.
EZ up comes with solid sides and mosquito nets. Here is a pic from LCG 3
