Sib outdoors

Recently moved the sib outdooes.
I purchased a Honwave 3.5 ae cover specific fir my sib.
It's cracking quality but just sags and pools water when it rains.

Tent poles to create tent like structure.
Old bin turned upside down to elevate tent pole.
Use trailer ratchet straps to secure structure.
Old tarp placed over cover to add more protection.
Works a treat and gas stood up ontovthe monsoon / hurricane season no probs.

Yup..that is almost the exact same as I do with mine Kaman.

Mine is double wrapped too..I keep a cheap screw fix tarpaulin under the heavy boat tarp ..the heavy tarp stops the wind rustling it. The heavy tarp is a bit old now so has a few minor leaks which the screw fix tarp keeps out of the boat.

Its all held up with an old spare piece of pvc drain form the ridge to let rain drain off.

Only real difference between our set up is... I jack the wheels up onto save the trailer tyres.. worth doing if leaving in one place for long

Im hoping to be using the Sib in the near future so I'll keep the wheels on the trailer for now.
I do take the wheels off my caravan over the winter tho as the tyres do perish if stood for long periods.
The honwave cover was around the 100 quid mark and is worth every penny in my opinion.
However it is useless unless propped up as depicted.
I said the Mrs the other day.
I wonder how many times the Sib would have filled to the top with water over the course of the winter?????????????
Quite a few me thinks.................

I also store my sib outdoors. However, I find that the hull gets very hot when the temp gets over the high 20s (C). S in the summer I park it under a tree.
