Yes, even if I remove the tent itself (still undecided), the canopy remains, which is also the lid/cover to the trailer and has my bike/surf racks for transport. With the tent removed, the lid can be dropped to a lower position, but not to the point where it would fit in the Yurt efficiently.
I went ahead and drafted a version of the 12' H12 Stretch (13'10"x24'x12') HexaYurt in AutoCAD with the trailer inside (see attached screenshot: basic, but to scale). The 12' roof height allows ample room and has the benefit of being a smaller (compared to 24'x24' previously discussed) area for cooling with the swamp-cooler. If I want more space for sharing, cooking, etc...I can (and plan to) add a smaller 8' (41sqft) H12 to the front (facing wind) which may help with wind-load? With the the smaller yurt on one side and the tow vehicle on the back-end the wind should be slightly deflected, at least that is my theory.
1. If I can guy these down properly with the smaller yurt in front, should this allow for sufficient wind deflection?
2. Can I get away with the 1" material?
3. Will my structure take excessive space? I will be sharing it with at least two other for sleeping and a few more including visitors for social space. I will also be camping on the outskirts.
1. The weight of the trailer inside and on-top of the floor tarp (taped to the structure) should also help with weighing the structure down?
This will be my first year at BM (yes, I still need a ticket), so I hope my onslaught of questions are acceptable? I don't want to be the noob with the structure flying down the Playa. I also have a lot of respect and admiration for the myriad of builds on the playa and want to contribute my own to share. Do it right the first time! Thank again!
