There have been some great family conversations
In a 7' x 10' space
Imagine renting a 70sqft room anywhere
And having a grand time

That is neat, but from what I gather the starting price is $12k USD.

Also, while it is nice to have something that folds down like that, I didn't see too much about how much you can put inside when folded down, or how accessible the inside is when folded down. In short, would it only be useful when folded up? Or could you use it as a canopy shell when folded down.

Also, I didn't see if it was available in different sizes - like for the 6+ foot bed on my Toyota vs. a full sized bed. The website didn't have much info.

Source for Vinyl Extruded Welt

I'm needing to do some minor repairs on my 8' awning on my tent camper and could use a source for some welt (it fits in a channel and is sewed into the awning cover) who will sell it by the foot with reasonable shipping costs. I've spent time searching the net with no results.

I may just resew the existing welt if I can't find it. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks for your help.

Go to a local automotive or boat canvas shop.

Don't know if it helps but, I grew up in a family that was very attached to a very old, and worn tent camper. At the end of every season the canvas would get hauled off to a local truck tarp shop. For a couple of bucks, the guy would fix whatever had failed over the summer. Might be a source of supplies, or sewing for those of us that lack the skills and an industrial sewing machine.
