Only way would be to take the whole canvas top off the trailer and have the holders stitched on !! A very major job which I wouldn't reccomend..

If you are in full sun the advantages of the tropical roof are not all that great I don't think....even though I have one.......look for shade either way !!!!!!

We have made use of our boatrack to make a tropical roof set up for those warmer areas Barbara, cost very little as well. Might be worth some sort of thought for you? Check our rig page. cant seem to insert the pic now??

G'day Barb,

Whilst I agree with Gronk, you will often find velcro, pockets, buckles etc are sewn into the standard canvas products of KK to allow optioning-up.

However, beware of relying only on velcro to hold the tropical roof. This was the case on one end with ours and it came off in high winds one night and the polycarb rod speared through our awning. I have added back-up tydowns to it since and had no further problems.

It certainly is an advantage when shade is unavailable; helps avoid night condensation also. I would recommend it.
