Here is da' pics-

I really dig it, but it isn't a hard mounted setup, it breaks down like a tent and takes up very little room. the sides can be rolled up and it comes with two poles to set it up like a canopy.

Looking forward to what you come up with.

Snap... my photos wont load, if you dig up my trailer build thread- check the second to last page.

You can't buy the other one seperately, but I also one that is attached to the front of the RTT.

TRDParts4U (Toyota Dallas) had the Mombasa 7' Awning (RTT-6022) on sale last October I think...

Looks a lot like the Camping Labs one...Might be the same

I will be getting an awning this year. My biggest focus on what I get is the bag/protection it has when stored. I consider the roof rack a roof skid and the side's often bump trees. Awning wont do me much good if it's destroyed on the trail before it gets used!

We have the one from Mombassa. They are well made and work great. I have not seen one that has a cover that would take a rub like a rack or slider would. I think a mount that would allow it to go from the top of the rack to the side when needed might be in order.

I have the Camping Lab awning and sides. Works great and the price was right, $250.00. They look very, very similar to the Mombasa, so do the RTTs.





Fernando is the Camping lab guy, super cool, trying to get him out here this year and hopefully he will donate another awning like last year to CM, in case you don't get one but want one...

Might even get him to bring some out here for sale on site at CM.

I like the awning, my fabric is pretty heavy duty and water proof. His new fabric seems lighter and is more rip-stop material..Looks good.

I also have a Kelty Car port. Medium size, I used to have the large.



The large was a bear to set up. Medium seems to be the right size. I bought it on Amazon used, new just a return, for 50% off. I can use the Kelty with any vehicle or no vehicle, provided I have 2 trees..

I like the small awning (Shadyboy) you posted Tim, and has a hard case. I saw this at this year's 24 hours of Moab, super cool and not too big.

Kelty Noah's Tarp affixed to the roof rack. Light, cheap, multifunctional, and only requires three people to hold it down in a rain and wind storm when parked on solid rock to remove a driveshaft in a driving flash flood. DAMHIK.

Under normal camping conditions, two cheap tent poles, some rope and stakes, and yer dun.

The small hard case is what's cool about that Shady boy, also that it's not full length. I agree with UB that the roof rack can see some action, I try not to use it as a slider but it's going to hit its share of branches that's for sure. And it would seem that you could have a mount that would move or flip or something allowing you to stow the awning in a safer spot, then slide it to where it needs to be to deport.

fun thread.. keep the pictures flowing!

You want pictures? I have a couple. First one, just because it should be seen every couple of years and the second to show what the now evidently unobtanium African Outback awning looks like in the wilds. It rained a little that evening but the awning kept us dry. The attachment to the tent is ingenious, it can be attached on any side of the tent and it is easy to store inside the truck. Some of those SA guys know what they are doing.
