home made canopy


My wife and I made a canopy the entire length of the track x 10' 0". We purchased a white tarp and some schedule 40 gas pipe. The canopy and track fit inside the front storage compartment. It took us about 20 min.to set up.

Hi Mpg-al,

Welcome to the posting side of the Heartland Owners Forum.

You should be able to post some pictures after 1 more post. Just click on the picture square (insert image) and you should be able to select a picture from your computer or from a web site to post.

I'm sure some others would like to see your canopy and maybe even copy it.

That's pretty cool. Here's ours, works great! Find some "Kedder Rail" online and have a leather shop sew it to a tarp, and you are good to go. I was going to mount the supports to the RV, but that seemed like a whole magnitude larger project. Somewhere on the internet I saw that someone had done that to their MPG....wasn't pretty. This is smarter. P8100405sml.jpg
I made a terrific awning this summer for my MPG 185. I think it is genius! I'll try to post a pic.

Moved on to the next thing...
Those MPG's are cool little trailers!

Those awning mods are all pretty cool, too!
