Found this with a quick Google search.
To purchase in this order - Baja Rack, ARB awning, then make one of these up.
Hate to bring this back up, but has anyone done this yet? I'm decent with fab skills, but having a hard time figuring out the mount to the roof rack.... I'm getting ready to order a 79" camping labs awning and this would be perfect for those quick stops to cook out of the tailgate and still have a driver's side awning. $410 US is way to much to order the commercial product.
Thanks Colin for the search and post. I used a base plate to anchor it the the crossrails of my homemade rack. I made this in less than 3 days for an out of town trip after recieving my awning. It cost me under $60 to build and I love it! Its great to have the flexiblity.
The shady boy is an interesting idea. I recently bought a bus depot awning to use on the rear of my 80, and I think both suffer from the same drawback - they take too much time to set up. Don't get me wrong, both set up in a relatively short amount of time, but it's not a comparable to the quick set up of the typical vehicle mounted awning.
Given the weight to shade ratio that the shadyboy awning provides; 15lbs / 60ft²....i don't mind if it takes a few more minutes to set up.... I just finish my swing arm n it works as intended... I'll post pics soon...
