Has anyone attached a tent-like ice shelter to their PM? Or had one custom built? I'm thinking enter\exit through the side slider, but I suppose the rear could work too.

If off to the side, perhaps I could leverage the canopy frame somehow? Drawstring?

I think the tent should be self-supporting (I don't want anything banging against the PM in high wind), which I could pick up a retail unit, but then I'd need a sleeve attachment with snaps, magnetic tape, or flexible drawstring the last couple feet to the PM.

I've heard of summer-time tent or screen attachment, but I have never seen them and not sure how they attach.

Thanks

You must be further North than I am! LOL. We don't normally get ice safe enough for vehicle travel here in Southern Michigan, but I can see how a Promaster would make one heck of a shanty in the right conditions. I have seen enclosures that cover and surround the open the back doors (The doors at 90 degrees act as sides). Modifying something like that would probably be the easiest way to go unless someone has a ready made ice shelter.

Surel I have used a Clam for a freestanding shelter with my van. I lived in it for 3 months last winter in Florida. The downside is wind will jerk that thing right out of the Florida sand and scatter your belongings in the next field. I also have a Fiamma awning. That company makes a small room that hangs over the open rear doors of the Ducato and also makes walls and doors for the awning.

I've got the Rhino Rack Platform and Foxwing setup. They make a lot of different panels for the awning as well as a tent, setup is ok. Takes 10 mins or so and having wrap around the back is great. Depending on weather I add side panels as needed for shade or keeping out the occasional rain we have in the Northwet.
