Don't forget to tell us all about your BraziBay - and it looks like you need to do a report on that funky sun shade you've got hooked up to Gecko ..... Basketball

Welcome Gecko, as Tim has already asked, how have you got your sun shade fitted to the bus. I've just bought a 'tarp' for this purpose, not yet figured how I'll fit it on tho'. Cart before the horse job!

We made one with some funky fabric from Ikea, put in a stitched sleeve at one end and used a tentpole and clamped it to the gutter, put three eyelets in the other end and used tent poles and guy ropes to secure,

Hi irishman,
I bought my sun shade from a company called "The Bus Shelter" online, saw them at vanfest 08 and thought they looked pretty cool.
You get 2 attachment options;
1. Exactly like Olives set up, one long pole through a sleeve which is clamped into the gutter.
2. 3 sections of plastic figure 8 which slide over a thick cord which is stiched into the top edge of the canvas, the 2nd edge of the figure 8 slides onto the gutter lip.

The canopys about 6ft square, has 5 brass eyelets and comes with 2 adjustable height poles and guy ropes and lots of colour options and is water proof, ideal for whacking the bbq under in a storm.
Cost about £100
Theyve got a pretty good web site with a gallery so you can see different set ups for different weather conditions.

Hi Olive,
Got to say that thats the best looking canopy i've seen and all for 30 quid !!!!!
Reckon you should make a few kits up and take them to the fests, bet they'd sell like hot cakes for treble your costs, never know, could be a new career looming.........
