Yes, thats my aim. With a 10' ridge line, it will make using a tarp a lot easier.
I've got my eye on those Kelty Noah 12. they are supposed to be 12'x12'. All the pictures show them used as diamond. I want to try in an A pitch. If it works in an A pitch, that would make it plenty big enough for a bridge with a 10' ridge line. I could even sew on some extra tie outs and pull the corners back in to sort of close off the ends.
Ordered 4 of those Gossamer Gear 3/8" pads, will cut them down and use with the poncho liners I have.
