Megamid Lite with Custom Bug Screen Mod Idea

Postby skylinearborist » Mon Feb 10, 2014 8:49 pm

new to the forum..thanks for having me. Here is my idea: I have a megamid lite for my girlfriend, myself and two mid size dogs. I saw the six moons wild oasis and would like to install bug netting on the bottom of the megamid with velcro and two sided gorrilla tape. not sure if the silny would hold up to stiching the velcro on but I dont have much experience with silny mods. was thinking with a tyvek floor from Hikelight (9oz) and some netting (maybe 4oz) i could cut weight instead of purchasing the BD bug netting mid (2+ lbs) for the sierra summers. Any advice is appreciated .

You would probably have to add a narrow piece of nylon to attach to the velcro, but I don't see why it wouldn't work if you do that. Steve

Bear Paw tents said they could sew on the netting for $50. Gonna try that.
