I saw that too. Looked ok. But for the £1500 they're asking I'd prefer a 270 deg awning with attached side walls for a bit less. Like this:

Currently working on one at the moment. Will post when finished. The supports fix to the rack and slide out when needed to about 1.8m. The top canvas is fixed to the rear load bar with awning strip and the 3 walls will hang of using Velcro.

Finished the walls and roof and tested in the Pyrenees for a week, really pleased with result. The canvas used is quite a heavy grade which makes it really waterproof and it doesn’t flap around in the wind. Final stage is a window or two and a flue hole for the wood burner.

excellent work Thumbs Up

I'll make some sidewalls for our rear tarp, too. I like how your rear wall is slanted towards the bottom, giving extra space. I think I'll steal that idea Wink

This is what I've ended up with. It's a generic tarp awning from https://stitchesandsteel.com/products/tarp...1202192430

I've attached an awning rail to the rear and side of the roof bars allowing me to put the awning up in either location. It's pretty quick and easy to put up. Just pull the bolt rope through the awning rail, pop up the telescopic poles and peg in the ropes. The awning material is very light weight so it packs down really small.

That’s more or less exactly what I have in mind.

Shame they seem to be quite explicit about “no shipping!” and “assembly in our workshop” Donald

That's frustrating. You'll have to go on tour in Germany and get it fitted on the way down! TD5 hardtop to Puma inspired Poptop - my build thread

Is that for the rear tent, too? Because on the pricelist ist says "1590€" (cough) "plus shipping".

Also for the tent there are two holes in the pop-top frame to slide the bars in.
(the two small black holes on either side https://shop.ex-tec.de/de/space-tec-hubdae...auge.html)
Maybe they want to fit that themselves?
