Re: Simple Morning Shade for Small Backpacking Tent

Thanks for the information. The fence top rail sounds great, especially since it's so easily accessible. Cheers.

We're just ordering the aluminet now and hopefully will have some pictures and tips for next time anybody else wanting to make one ...

I'm in the process of ordering aluminet for a shade structure. We're getting a 11' x 21' piece. Because space is going to be quite tight in the car this year, I was wondering, what does your aluminet fold down into? I realise you have a different size, but ballpark figures would help. Cheers.

Re: Simple Morning Shade for Small Backpacking Tent

Do you think aluminum flag poles would work? We want to use this design, but expand it so it is big enough for 2 tents and add a centre pole. So far, I've found 6' 3/4" aluminum flag poles. Do you think that will be strong enough? We are using 60% illuminet for shade. Or does anybody think that wood...
