Default Re: Bed canvas shell/ tent

O, ok. How are you mounting the canvas to it?

And how sturdy is the PVC? I wonder if making it out of metal piping would really make that much of a difference. I don't want it to look like I made it either haha. I want it to look good, and do it's job

EXACTLY WHAT I WANT

Only sites I have found with this for Rangers are around $600. There is not a chance in hell I am about to spend even half of that on this haha

Those are both pretty cool. Look expensive tho

I am not looking for only 1 thing. I just want something that is:
Weatherproof
Easy to put up
Easy to take down
Can throw it in the bed of my truck when traveling

Well, if there was a BAD storm, I would be packing my shit and leaving. If there was a storm in the desert that was strong enough to blow down a tent or something, that would kind of void the purpose of being in the desert to kick it and have a good weekend haha.

I am really thinking about making myself a frame out of some metal piping just to see how I like it

When I make it, I am going to make a plug to the bed of my truck so I can have 1 or 2 LED dome lights or some type of lights inside of the tent on a toggle switch. I will have all kinds of cool shit done to it when I make it haha
