[color=blue]In 2006 I took my dad's old 1978 Winnebago to the Playa. While it proceeded to die upon arrival, my shade structure was a hit!!! I had an awning attached to the RV, and had made sure the hardware was very secure. I then made a giant 20ft 3 - sided tent to cover it. The top was a solid piece, that I had sewn out of two peices of fabric, and the sides are all separate strips that have grommets at the bottom to secure to the ground with tent stakes - all different colors like a circus tent. The top piece also has grommets, and I secured it to the top of the RV with bungee cords , rope, or whatever worked.
While the 70 mph dust storms were roaring, and tents and awnings were flying off motorhomes, mine was safe and secure and relatively dust free. I would have about 20 people in my little Moroccan Love den each afternoon while the wind did it's worst. :lol:
The next time I went without the RV and used the Big Tent to cover a camper as well as my tent with a liing room area in between. This year I will be adding a fourth side, and will use a pop up gazebo structure or two as my middle support, with two small tents underneath and a living room area in between.
You could use tarps, or be more creative and find colorful fabric. I scouted around for inexpensive upolstry fabric for mine. [/color]
