    The centre tent pole(s) has a protrusion same as the poles for the sidewall. Since the sidewall poles are telescopic, one can put an eye end on one centre pole and the other end on the opposing centre pole and "stretch" the sag in the centre....

    I have not tried it because I am not looking forward to fiddle with this. To be honest, I am actually considering selling the Bundu Canopy for an awning. Just trying to explain my idea makes me tired....
    There is also the tennis ball on a tent pole trick, but that takes up real-estate....
    Let me know if you decide to sell - might be interested.

    Unfortunately my plan might only work with a standalone setup. I did buy the extra pole on the vehicle side and where my idea came from. My camping these days is very simple and I think an awning is just the thing.
    It also sags in the centre, but I will do the tennis ball thing...

    Had a chance to try mine this weekend at Strandskloof; in preparation for our Namibia trip in 3 week's time. Only bought one side, for that odd occasion when the wind pla.
    Worked well.
    Happy.

    Fit with rope guide facing towards the bottom to avoid dust and water to intrude and accumulate in the cavity.
