Vital Tool for Shade, Adjustable Tarp Pole - Single

Check Availability

A quality made tarp pole is a luxurious thing. When the sun is intense or the rain just won't quit, having an extra shaded, weather-protected area is a real luxury when living out of a camper, tent, van, or RV. Awnings are bulky and expensive, while tarps fold flat and the tent poles collapse into a bundle for easy storage. Best of all, a simple tarp paired with adjustable tarp poles can be readily moved according to the sun. We Highly Recommend these lightweight aluminum poles for durability, ease of use, adjustable height, and compact design. Comes in 2 sizes, 6 ft & 8 ft.
