Default Roof Porch

I put this on a camper cover that i put on the back of my truck.



All you need is a 6X8 canvas tarp, bolts, nuts, washers, extending tent poles, rope, stakes, and some waterproofing compound.



Next i used a drill to drill some holes into the top of the camper cover. put the waterproofing compound onthe holes and put the bolts through the grommets on the tarp. then tie rope onto the tent poles and atach to stakes, put tent poles into the other tarp grommets and this is what you get.









I just added some straps to two of the bolts to hold them in place and used them to roll all of the poles and stakes onto the roof. this is what it looks like rolled.







it rides just fine. doesnt shake or anything.
