NetDep's Teardrop Awning

NetDep is a reader of the Tiny Yellow Teardrop blog and recently sent me some photos of his 6x10 Little Guy Silver Shadow teardrop trailer. Right away, I and several other readers,  noticed the cool awning that he had over one of his trailer doors and I asked him more about where he got it.
NetDep ordered his Silver Shadow with a Rough Rider off-road frame and also had the factory install a roof rack. A local auto shop,that has done some custom work on the trailer, ordered an ARB awning and attached it to the rack. The ARB is a retractable awning that fits onto any vehicle or trailer roof rack and can be stored away in a roof-top bag while driving. They are designed for harsh sun and are waterproof and UV protected. The awning and telescoping legs are stored away in a PVC bag and then deployed and installed in just a few minutes. Optional mosquito netting is available for the ARB.
"I could not be happier," NetDep said. "ARB is an awesome manufacturer of all things Expedition and the camp chairs I use are also ARB and I love them. My favorite ARB dealer is Sierra Expeditions."


His rugged, off-road Silver Shadow was custom ordered from Little Guy and contains a sink and stove but no refrigerator since he uses a Yeti cooler for storing food. Other additions include a solar panel with plug-in and an upgraded entertainment package. He also wanted the color and the tires to match his 2011 black Toyota Tacoma.

    1. Thank you for the information. I had never seen this type of roof rack before. I love how it folds up into its own bag on the roof. Very smart!
