Bears Shade/Privacy Screen

Hi All, getting ready for some much needed desert camping and one can never have enough shade and wind protection. I know desert camping is not for everyone but We love it! This is just a prototype and has Not been tested, heck it may not even work lol any way happy camping.

Tin.

Good method for connecting to the awning rail. What did you use for that, and how is it held in?

That is some fancy adjustable pole kit you got there? Please let us know it's source if not home made.

Very classy looking poles. Lucky Gen 1 owners already have theirs built in.

Yup, love those warm windy days in the desert.

Those are really fancy and useful-looking poles. We too would like the source.

So it appears that the eye hook attachment on the pole is removable as the first 2 picture did not have them and it appears you are not using them for anything other than perhaps strong wind extra tie down? source of poles?

It still needs tie downs and such but that will have to wait until camping.

Hi, Jim I used 3/4 x 90 degree elbow FTG x Street and pressed in the aluminum spindle that came with tarp poles.
