Dave, How did you mount the awning to the Flippac? Through bolt? I received an ARB awning, and I wanted it in the back, but it's too heavy to use the lower mount points.... considering using it on the side now.... Jay
Deployed, 4 sided enclosure. Totally private.
This enclosure will be a multi-purpose room for showering, bathroom, or even sleeping kids.
Front wall, note the big grommets all along the bottom that allow the use of the big Snow Peak stakes, this thing isn't going anywhere.
Entrance, note the big fat zipper with pulls on both sides and the big pocket sewn on the far wall for items like soap, shampoo, iPod, etc.
Hooks attach inside wall to Fiamma case, inside wall provides extra privacy as well wind protection.
Hooks have grommets which allow the mounting of lights or just about anything on that wall like a Thule RV wall organizer.
I'm also going to add some 550 cord along there threaded via the grommets for hanging towels.
Inside corner mounting details. Note how the velcro wraps around the bars for max privacy and wind proofing.
Shown here during enclosure mounting, the 7mm channel in the Fiamma allows the use of this "rope" for mounting and a completely sealed front edge.
There is an aluminum extrusion that the Fiamma hangs from, it's bolted to the side of the FlipPac - 5 stainless steel rivets into the square steel tube that is glassed into the FP shell at the top, and 2 bolts through the fiberglass sides with large washers act as a safety to keep Fiamma and extrusion from parting ways.
One can never have too many options for charging gear in camp so last night I added a Blue Sea USB port in place of one of the 12V cigarette plugs. It has a 15 mA parasitic draw so I also added an on/off switch to protect the house battery when it's not in use. Now I two USB's right at the tailgate with 2.1 Amps of charging each - plenty for anything including an iPad.
I have enjoyed your build and your wonderful innovations for years now and I just jumped on board with the forum. Like always, bravo man! I have a similar type of build '09 Tacoma with a flippac (obviously nowhere near what you got going on) which I gain constant inspiration and knowledge from all of your hard work. Always looking forward to see what's up your sleeve. Thanks Dave.
