6X12 utility trailer

I have a ramp rear door. Anyone know where I can get a tent that can make the ramp a livable area.

can you explain a little bit more...
I suspect you are trying to make an enclosed 12x6 trailer with a door that ramps down...

do you want to add a tent, or tarpped area to the ramp, maybe with a screen door?

I want it to be like a tent for sleeping but a screen room during the day.

Do you have an existing awning out there now?

My awning has support poles that toe back to the trailer. I imagine you could fashion screen sides attached with Velcro.

Otherwise, if no awning- what about a pop-up tent or EZ-Up with sides?

Adding an awning is hellishly expensive- like $1,400.

If I were you, Id do what I said: look for a tent or EZ-Up that fits the space. The Clam screen tents are really nice. Theyre expensive at somewhere near $400, but its still cheaper than adding an awning and fabbing up screens for it.
