Trudgin through Sierra Trading Post looking for hiking boots, etc., for an upcoming trip and came across these three. The Hummer one includes table and chairs!

I especially like the EZ Awning with the heavy duty suction cups. A couple of side curtains and you have a nice side room on the tear. The curved roof should give a good height. ;)

Don't get the large Kelty. I have one, it is a nice unit, but it is waay too big. The top rung is longer than our SUV. Probably will be OK if you have a Suburban or Excursion. I don't know how big the medium Kelty is.

Okay, I fixed the picture. I'm hurt by the comments regarding my avatar. I just wanted to post a picture of me as a kid like everyone else was doing. :cry:

I have to admit, that avitar is also driving me nuts. Bruce has posted a lot of really interesting information about electrical systems, but I always have to scroll his avitar up off the screen so that I can read without being distractied.

It reminds me of shopping in the mall surrounded by other people's kids. . .

Okay, okay, I guess it was a little annoying. I'll go back to Misty's picture.

Doug is spot on about the size, medium is the only way to go.

I have hooked mine over the side door and also over the galley door. Just remember they do fly if not secured very well. They are not really water proof but do offer good protection from the rain. With the side door open it also offers some privacy protection. Dress quickly :o :lol: :lol:

:o Wonder if an old tent could be manipulated to do that. Little cutting, little sewing, little cutting poles?
