10 year Burner here, headed out for my 11th in 2012.
For years now I have been using burly military surplus shade netting and spreader poles with plenty of guy-wires and rebar for my shade. It is good in that it has survived the occasional gale force winds -- that good feeling when you return from the deep playa to see all your neighbors stuff blown over and yours still standing.
Downside is a that it is a big heavy kit of stuff, takes a good two hours setup, an hour to breakdown and packup, and has guy-lines everywhere to snag me and my neighbors.
So, I found this product: http://www.busdepot.com/details/awning/
looks pretty ideal -- pup-tent style flexible rod dome, attaches to the raingutters of your vehicle, and secures either to the ground or the base of the vehicle itself, packs down small, and goes up fast. Just wondering if it's rugged enough to survive a week on the playa. . .
Any of y'all Burners used one of these? Anyone used a similar product?
