Two sided pop-up canopy?

Postby woytovich » Sun Jun 12, 2011 8:33 pm

I saw a picture of a pop-up canopy that had just 2 roof sides rather than the typical 4 sides. This seems to be a very useful design when one wants to set a canopy up against the side of a little trailer - it would keep the rain running NOT towards the trailer.

So... does anyone know of any like this for sale out there? I THINK the one I saw was logo'd for a company - beer, NASCAR or something.

...if you have a pop up already or find one you like, Academy and many other sporting good outlets sell side kits for both slant and straight leg models...these are almost always in two parts giving you what you want...we have a side kit we picked up at WallyWorld and usually only use half of it to make two sides...cost for these kits are around 35bux............

there's an interesting variation of this with PVC pipe and ripstop for A-liners. Most of those only have one door, though ... I think if you google chipsushidog, you can find his page on how he did the one he has.
