Re: Aluminet Durability?

Depending on my budget coming up closer to the burn, Aluminet looks to be the way to go. So most likely I'll end up going with cheaper shade clothes. :roll: this is so true. Trilobyte.. I couldn't look past the pizza! is that Pizza on the playa? good god.. that would be amazing.. but back on topic....

Hey Capt.. Well it will be a rental and the small ones i'm looking at don't have a hitch.. "sucks" but the price for the bigger one and gas would just be too excessive. It will be a Jeep renegade.

Re: Aluminet Durability?

I’m now 100% aluminet, because it is by far the most practical solution to shade and I have more money than I did when I first started going to BM. Thanks for taking the time for some great info.

Re: Aluminet Durability?

Great thread and thanks for all the comments. I'm pretty much in the same boat as OP. While I haven't tested the tent in playa conditions yet, Rez I can say you settled on a damn fine tent. I've used it twice so far and can see it lasting a lifetime. I initially was going to go for a Hexayurt, but ...

Re: Aluminet Durability?

I got some durable cheap 50% shade cloth at Harbor freight. 20' X 20' for about $30. By folding it in half, I added a nice 10' X 20' extension to my awning that is plenty shady. We had a couple of 70 MPH gusts a few weeks ago and it held up great. Now That.. I like that. any Idea what it is called....

put the alternator on a hole high in the air. when the wind blows, or the b.s. too deep.

We use 90% shade cloth and it is really excellent. We have it grommeted along the edges and it's been to six burns with no issues Both polyester shade cloth as TK suggests and Aluminet are very tough. You will need that because both will catch some wind. Poly shade cloth hardly stretches. Aluminet ...

Simply plug a battery charger into the inverter. It'll still drain the battery, but I think it'll have less loss than the mechanical alternator setup, so it does improve the situation. It sucks less.
