Mr. Link, Big Agnes looks like a great addition to the camp gear. Very nice!

When Missing Link posted that image a few months back I immediately went searching for the BA product...all to no avail as it has been discontinued and no longer in stock anywhere that Google could find.

I like this combination:

I would like a similar "framed" tarp. I believe Nemo makes a similar tarp, to the Big Agnes, but that tarp seems to be hard to find as well. I have sent an email to AT Overland (where this image was taken from) to see if these are available:

We bought ours in 2010; I did not realize that they were no longer available.  When I was researching covers back then, several WTW members provided examples of what they were using.  I remember that Sunman had a framed cover from Kelty that he and his family liked quite a bit.  BTW, the BA Twin Butte had an available screen panel kit to make it bug proof which we bought but have never used.

This is the one I am thinking about getting.

I really like the crowned top instead of just hanging a tarp out there. But I am finding that most of my trips I don't sit still long enough to warrant putting up anything.

That one might do the trick!  I only wish it had a gust vent in the crown.  It will easily attempt to become a kite in moderate winds with that clam shell design.

 

I'm looking for one that I can attach a Kelder Welt or Kelder Track Slides too and simply slip into the camper's awning rail on the rear.

You can just purchase Kelder Welt and sew it to whatever tarp or awning you desire, I have a section sewn to a 10' x 15' canvas tarp and have adjustable poles that I purchased from Family Tent Camping that are for OzTents. I may go with a lighter tarp.  Ron

I like their Rear Hatch Shelter. That would be a great way to get a mud room to store items that you want to stay somewhat dry or to still eat outside when it is both wet & windy & the side awning isn't sufficient or can't be fully cranked out.

The Nemo Bugout screen room is well done assuming you have two appropriate sized trees in ideal locations from which to suspend it. The Nemo doesn't lend itself to setting up with just poles.

That one (Bus Depot) does look good, and is less expensive.  Brenda, you make a good point about moving a lot.  We always bring the Twin Butte Car tarp but seldom use it, as we often arrive at a camp in the early evening and hit the road the next morning.  We only bring the Clam if we know we will be staying somewhere for more than one night.

Thanks Ron!

 

I had a seamstress sew a Kelder welt to a Hilleberg tarp ($$$$$) and it ripped apart in a 20mph gust in Baja.  I should have contacted Hille for advice before I had it sewn.  After the fact, they told me their proprietary material is not designed to be sewn inside the hem as it will fail...and I can certainly attest too.  Small punctures and holes here and there don't hurt too much;  but a long stitch without a proper weld will fail.

 

The heavy, cheap, blue tarps from Lowes or HD may be the way to go IMO.
