Shady Boy Awning
All, I took the plunge and added a Shady Boy Awning to my van. I should have done it years ago! I've tested it in the desert and in the rainy southeast. Is it perfect? No, but it did everything that I wanted and it only weighs 15 lbs, is compact when stowed, and is a snap to deploy and stow. It seems to handle wind gusts well and is acceptable in keeping the rain out of the side doors and providing a bit of shelter.
Here are some pictures of it stowed and deployed right after I installed it. It took only about an hour to install as well!
Well that is all for now, got to get back on the road againÖ
