Hi all, Has anyone attached an awning or cover to the right side of their BT to act as a roof or "garage" for the tow vehicle? Such a device would provide additional shade in the hotter areas as well as providing some protection to what looks like becoming a new tow vehicle purchase. Have even thought of an additional Aussie Traveller awning on that side. If so we would be interested in your thoughts, and comments on how well it works. Noosa_Nomads

What a good suggestion. It would make the BT cooler too I imagine. regards Macka

We have had a sail track put on the off side of the van for that purpose, haven't used it yet as we are still getting set up. when we asked about another Ausie Travler we were told it would make the van too wide as it is already maximum width with one on the side. Lynne

Hi All, We have a track on the off side. The previous owners of our BT left us a shade cloth that is about 1.8m wide from memory. We have a pair of alloy extension poles (3 section ones that take up very little room but extend about 2.1m) and ropes for it but at this stage we have never used it. The aim is to use it when we want to keep that side of the van cool. The same shade cloth also fits in the second track on the Faulkner rollout awning to give additional shade on that side. So far we have always found a tree to park the car under so have never used it to cover the car. Keep on Tinkering, Regards, Peter
