It doesn't seem like it would be a big deal to either get some tent material from Jo-Ann's and make panels to fit to make a "roof and side panels for 3 sides. I was also thinking it would make a good platform to set up a tent on for staying off the ground. :) My tow vehicle is going to be Neon, so I had to abandon the idea of a hard sided shelter.

This is gonna be cool
