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."


Coleman has it here -

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?

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.

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 Thanks to Dave for the pic. Another LCG 3 pic with the sides up. ... 408426828/ Thanks shooter for the pic.
