DIY Redneck Camper Awnings and Cabana

If video does not show click on this link  DIY Homemade Camper Awning and Cabana

Here is a very easy do it yourself homemade awning / cabana for a cargo trailer conversion camper, pop up camper or RV using heavy duty tarps.

First I used 4 eye screws to attach the tarp to the trailer with carabiners. 

IF you have any other suggestions please leave them in the comment section.

Drill and place an eye screw to line up for each tarp hole. Then use carabiners, tarp bungees or even rope to attach the heavy duty tarp to eye screws on trailer.

Then attach two tent poles staked with rope on each opposite side.  I would use two rope lines on each pole.

Next I also used two more heavy duty tarps for side panels.  These attach easy with tarp bungee cords. The ones with the ball on the ends. One on the back and one on the side.

So far this is perfect and was very inexpensive to do.
