trying to find a vehicle tent of some sorts for my jeep and my tools, something with a door, ive looked at 3 different costco`s, didnt find anything, looked at crappy tire, they had a few but they had to be ordered in, does anyone know where i can get one? perferably with some sort of door on the front,

im looking for a 12 or 14`X 20` X 10` tent,


any info would be awsome, the sooner the better too cause my jeep leaks water like crazy

the building supply place at 176 and hwy 10 usually has them instock ..
they are pretty good quality compared with the costco ones(have 3 up)
1 for over 6 years and just now have to put a p auto tarp on the roof...
make sure u get the thick tubes not the little 1 1/2 inchers or when it snows youll be havin to go out and shake the snow off frequently so it doesnt colapse on ur rig...

i have used a lordco one, canadian tire one and a costco one....

so far the best one that stay's tight and doesn't let the tarp sag is the canadain tire one. it has a set of tubes at the bottom of the sidewalls that clamp to the upright posts keeping everything tight.

those elastic rubberband tyedowns the others use are crap. they dont last 1 season and then they are shot.

Just put a great big roof off the front of it and it's a carport and the tools are right there. p.s. anthony's rig looks sick, you are quite the guy to call a friend is there nothing you won't do for people.[36]

yea, any sexual favors lol unless your female....

the reason i want the tent is for one, i dont have to pay for it, and 2. the landlord is pouring a big 12x20 slab in the back just for me to put my jeep, all cause he saw it sitting in the rain with a tarp over it so the water didnt leak into it,

so when we goin wheelin again? i only gots till november then im stuck without a rig till i get the d44`s in,
