    does anybody no where i can get just the materials(fabric) for a tent??

    i would need the nylon(waterproof, breathable, windproof) and the mesh to make windows....

    ive googled until i cant stand it...all i can find is tent camping tips explaning the diff kinds of material tents are made of..i want the actual material to make my own...

    umm...just to clarify a little...im not actually building a tent....im working on rigging up a "sort of homebrewed popup trailer"...

    like a popup, carry a micro on top, gear inside and/or on a flatdeck in front...upon arrival to destination, unload boat, raise the top, fold out the ends, cover with with tarp/tent....

    i can find tarp material, nylon(blue, silver), canvas....canvas stinks...nylon woven junk isnt weatherproof enough or durable enough for a tent...

    i have the fabrication part and the fold out mechanics already worked out...just stumped on the fabric part...

    im even to the point of looking at buying an old school cabin tent and cut it up...but somebody, somehwere has to know where to find tent fabrics...

    thanks in advance...

    these got my juices flowing...

    this site has a lot of ideas for converted pop ups and links to tent trailers take a look in the non traditional design section

    yeah, im sure they have tons of what i need over there...thats the problem...none here, unless i need 10 thousand yards of it!!! lol

    i found people that make replacement kits for popups, and through a lil research i found one very close to what im looking for ...i havent built yet, so ill just make my dimensions fit accordingly....way more cost effective...

    i gots too many projects....building 2 different boats...building a boat trailer, gonna start a camper trailer(well it was already started 2 years ago, lol).....my lil shop is full...

    That was a joke. Your profile says you are from Amite. I have heard a saying my whole life when something is very full, it is "a-might full". No big deal. Just amusing myself.
