    Being in the desert we need to carry our own shade. I started with a double layer of garden shade about 20 feet long. Then using 1.25” and 1.5” PVC pipe I made a collapsible support that fits in the lock-n-ride holes in the bed that stick up about 15” from the side rail. I used the PVC pipe by making three 1.5” pieces and two pieces of the 1.25” inside them.

    The PVC slides thru the garden shade and is clamped in place. I am using telescoping tent poles on the outside ends with some place to anchor and hold it up. Seems to be working fairly well. Total cost is around $50.00 with the cost of garden shade and PVC. I did use lots of electric tape and Flex Seal to get the pipes to be snug in the lock-n-ride holes and inside the 1.5” pipe for stability.
