I haven’t posted here in a while...

I got a delivery today. My Smittybilt awning came in. I haven’t had time to open it up, so here’s an image I pulled of the Google. (I covered all of the inappropriate things in the the pic.)

I’m thinking I’ll probably build a frame to mount it on the side of my trailer. I’m already planning a small camp kitchen on the trailer... this will be perfect over it.

My credo
it is easier to fix and understand than "her"
Post frame the trailer so it's easily convertable. Definitely decent bang for buck.

I've been looking at awnings... wish you had better feed back on that one.

Still on the fence which way I'm going to go... there are a couple cool options for camping. I was hoping for something I could set up and not have to break it down to take a ride in the truck.

My buddy has the smaller version of this one. I saw it set up once. It’s decent quality. You can set it up or pack it away in minutes.
