Nice Titch!

Is it high enough to stand under? (or are you short enough?)

I have toyed so often with putting an awning on my car but then wonder whether or not I will really ever use it.

They're very handy GP. and pretty cheap thing.

but yeah, depends if you would actually use it or not.

I find mine pretty good as i can use it for the rally weekends and easy set up for the short weekend fishing camp.

The only downside i can see is, once you set it up you can't use your car, can't take off to look for firewood or go in to town for beer, but actually it only takes 5 minutes to pack up so if you really want beers it's not soo hard.

I reckon for the most of it I would normally have the CT in tow so could use it. I don't venture out very much just for day trips where I would need one and if I did I could always just sling a tarp on the roof rack and a couple of poles and be done.

In days of past, yes I probably would have gotten some use from it but not now.

Yep I can stand under it as long as I am near the car.
I reckon it will get used a lot as we do buzz of fishing overnight.
