Tent On Toon

Hi All,

Its been a long time since I've posted - lost my login and took me a while to figure it all out - good to be back. So, here is what I'm thinking.......

As in my signature, I have a 25'Lx 8.5'W Tri-toon and I can't afford the whole camper enclosure. I have read a few posts about using a small tent on the front of the toon, but I want to put a Tent over the whole damn thing.

I found a 25'L by 10'W camping tent that I'm thinking of using. I have double biminis, so my thinking is to cut the floor out of the tent, take the poles out and lay it across both biminis so I wouldn't need the middle pole support, but will at the ends, let the sides hang down, add snaps and then add fiberglass poles where needed to add rigidity.....

Okay - has ANYONE done something like this or am I as crazy as I sound.......

Thanks !!!

i think it would work

but are the sides tall enough that they would hang down far enough ? i think you could make it work if you cut the floor i a big X type pattern, put up and then trim floor to fit

Ok All,

I done got er’ ordered, meaning the camping tent...... it should be in before too long and I’ll have to open er’ up and study er’ first and devise a plan on how I’m going to do this...... and if it’s feasible before I start doing anything else......

If it does work, which I’m hoping it will..... then we’re off for some new adventures!!!

Keep you all posted

Ok, the tent is in, but it’s been too cold to setup outside.

My thoughts are to set it up first to see how all the poles setup so I can have a plan on moving it to the pontoon ...... it’s gonna be fun no matter what !!!!
