Canopy hookups?

Just saw on FB someone who found a canopy to hook to the wheels of the trailer canopy then on the outer edge used poles. Meaning never having to pull out the big canopy.
Carbineers are used to hook to the canopy wheels.

Anyone know of this?

Thanks, Kat

I saw it. You can buy it 4 legged, or two. They connected it to the tightening wheels on the manual awning, and then two posts on the far end tethered as usual. I'm not sure it would be good for a longer airstream.

For me, I'm leery of anything being tied to, in particular, having posts, being close to my airstream in high winds. Either way, I'd have to take it down before leaving for a day trip, overnight, during impending storms, etc.

I look cross eyed at freestanding canopies in close proximity to all my aluminum. They always make me a bit skittish in high winds. I've seen my share of debris being blown about.

Indeed, I've wondered what a frisbee ding would like

Conclusion for benefit.
