The connector/coupling for rafters-spacers-vertical support poles
The spring pole acts as an anchoring post for the side skirts and ground pole. It attaches to a bracket on the trailer at each end of the canopy. The foot base is spring loaded so it rides up and down depending on the weight in the trailer and the terrain.
The soil skirt is a 10″ to 15″ vinyl piece sewn onto the bottom of a full skirt or privacy skirt. It is intended to lay an inch or two on the ground to prevent dirt from blowing into the canopy. It also reduces wear on the skirts. Soil skirts are typically black but can be blue, white, grey or red.
A spinnaker end is attached to the trailer end of each rafter. The spring loaded hook is cocked using a cable that runs theough the rafter. The hook snaps into the rafter ring securing the rafter to the trailer.
A Storefront style roof is available on fully enclosed canopies. The rafters create a peak which gives more headroom and creates the illusion of more space. The removable triangular shaped storefront allows for better graphics visibility from the ground than a standard slope roof.
