Thread: Tarps

    Tarps

    I have my bases covered. (I think) I have the Hennessey poly 1012. I like the porch set up. Very solid tarp. Then own Etowah 810. Silnylon. Lightwieght, well made and packable. Backyard tested the Etowah last ice strom. Nearly 3 inches of ice and 3 inches of snow. Gotta love NC...... My 2 part question. Are my bases covered in tarps? Anyone tried the Ollies Store tarps. Discount store. Found a 1214 and 10x12 $11.99 each. Any success stories or horror stories with cheap tarps?

    The qestion is what do you want to do with the tarp? Do you backpack do you car camp.

    You could add a tarp with doors to your collection. Real nice to have for when it's raining sideways and to keep the wind out.

    I personally would like to have 1 tarp to cover it all (because you never know what to expect). Big, capable to be pitched in porch configuration, or in "closed doors" configuration, or on the ground if need be. Hopefully, MonsterFly tarp would fit the bill for me.

    There's nothing wrong with cheap blue tarp either for car camping. A good camper will always find a good use for a cheap Walmart tarp.
