PostSubject: Side or Rear Tent   Tue May 24, 2016 3:17 pm

Hi All,
does anyone have recommendations for a Side or Rear tent to attach to my Hiace?  

We have a lot of mosquitoes here and it would be great to find a tent to cover the side door.  

I got very crafty and sewed a bunch of magnetic screens for all the windows (even the front windows) but a tent would be great.

I ordered a back tent shelter from busdepot com but it was a Pig in a Poke.  No seal around the van and since it was designed for vw, it was way too small.

thanks
gordon

I had a Vaude universal bus tent, but we didn't use it that much since we don't stay in one location that much.

But the problem is you will never have a nice seal against musquitos. Although this Vaude bustent also had an interior tent for it, making it more expensive. And it was meant for the rear, not the side.

It would be more practical to have an screen for your side door. We are going to try such a walk through screen (with a couple of wide strips/nets hanging down). But I'm not sure if it will keep all of them out.

Thanks. I'll look into the Vaude tent.
Maybe side screen might be a better bet though..
