DIY UTE CANOPY BUILD

Unread post by Ethantyrrell » October 26th, 2016, 7:32 pm

so ive decided that rolling out a swag and camping with my current meshed canopy isn't what the Boss lady wants.

So ive built a canopy on autocad and am going to build it out of ally,
its based on the Metalink lift off camper with some custom thing added in,

here are the photos and ill keep you guys updated.


Let the long nights and beer induced swearing begin......

It certainly does look like a nice way to start Ethan, very well planned out. :thumb: How comfortable are you with doing the all the extra stuff that goes along with those long nights & beer induced swearing?? :sillywink:

Hey Stretch, now that you've done a 'shake-down cruise', are you planning any mods to yours?? I usually found I'd hafta re-work something after my first 'big' trip... :o
