sun


Adding many 20 foot long pvc pipes to the shade structure could make for great shade coverage of the Yurt and of our vehicles.

While hunting around for shade ideas to make the yurt even more thermally efficient, I found this couple who added a great shade structure to their yurt. They took care of all of the issues I’m looking at with my yurt. Here is the thread where I found the initial information.

Here is a pic of their shaded Yurt on the Playa.

Here is the happy couple. Cowboy and Connie. Truly amazing to see yet a second yurt transported on top of a car roof. Gives me great hope that my Honda wagon will handle the load well. This couple used a roof rack. I don’t see any additional straps. I’ll have to find out if they used any straps to hold the yurt in place at freeway speed.

Here is Zanes car with his yurt transported on the roof as well. Zane reported that his yurt slid back about 5 inches during transport. Does not look like a roof rack was used.
