ORSM – Slumberjack Roadhouse Tarp

One of Sumberjack’s new priducts for OR Summer Market is so big, they couldn’t actually set it up in the booth but rather had to rely on a large billboard along the side of their booth. The Roadhouse Tarp was designed to be used in conjunction with a vehicle for overland camping use.

The Roadhouse Tarp will come with two beefy steel poles and can be set up alone lean-to or ridge tent-styles or connected off the back of a vehicle with two poles for a wider top or single pole for a more pronounced ridge.  It is equipped with a ratchet attachment system to connect to various points on the vehicle included the wheel.  I know one of you will say it, so I’ll save you the embarrassment; no, it’s not meant to be driven with the tarp attached to a wheel.  

Coming Spring 2017.

    While this is an excellent idea, I feel like the tarp or its grommet/tie-down points on the vehicle could rub against the rear quarter panel or truck bed paint in medium to high winds…

      Don’t buy a work vehicle if you’re afraid of it getting some wear

      Pretty easy remedy: just put a towel or rag there for chafing.

      I definitely dig this, and if the MSRP is reasonable for my cheap ass, I’ll be on this. Not just for camping, but would make a nice shade for shooting in the desert.

    Look forward to this tarp!

    I have a sail channel attached to the back of my slide-in camper. Looks like I simply have to sew the 52″ of sail track on the tarp and I have an instant back awning. Attach the truck side corners to the jack attachment points and I should be GTG….(not as in driving overland).

    Had one I made of Sunbrella fabric but I couldn’t source beefy steel collapsible poles. Only light weight tent poles that didn’t do the job.

    “Trail Flys” the Jack of All Trades Tent/Fly for Scouts everywhere 40 years ago. An idea that never went out of style.
