    Default FS Holliday Canopy metal parts

    Holliday Canopy metal pieces.

    Before there were affordable and easily portable pop up canopies, there were these:

    Peter Fehn and I used this one in the early 1990s. Some assembly required.

    I have the metal corner/top/end pieces only, no tarp, no electrical conduit or bungies.



    If you need a long term shelter in your back yard, or something bigger than a pop up for a multi-day event, this is what you need

    Buy the metal pieces from me.

    Then go to Lowe’s and buy the amount of Ĺ” electrical conduit to support the size of tarp you need. Conduit comes in 10’ lengths, so a 20’ long tarp is the longest.

    Then go to Harbor Freight for a tarp and zip ties, and you are all set.

    can't get the photo insert to work, so here is a link to a photo

    I can't get the photo to work, does this at all resemble something like a car port? I moved to a house with a converted garage and shop out back, but no covered parking for the miata. Toying with ideas that will stand the weather for a year or two until I get a proper car port built.

    Will this thing, properly anchored, handle north texas weather? What are the dimensions? Does the tarp attach to the house/trailer on the rear and legs support the tarp out front, that's what I found on google.

    well now the picture link thing appear to work



    what I have are the 9 metal pieces only

    it is freestanding on six legs unless somehow you attach one side of it to an eave of house/garage

    I never used it in bad weather, so I guess how it stands up to bad weather depends on how good it is tied down or sheltered against a building

    the longest it could be is 20' -- two 10' pieces of 1/2" electrical conduit joined together by the middle piece

    the widest is the same

    we had 20 x 16 when we used it at autocrosses

    I'll buy them... as long as it's not a beating getting to them.
