This guide shows you how to make a shade structure that covers 200sq.ft., withstands extreme weather, and fits inside a mid-size car. This is the most compact, sturdy monkey hut I have seen.

100% UV BLocking
In the heat of the desert, only 100% UV blocking shade will keep you cool. Protect yourself with pure shade!
Withstands Extreme WInd
Desert winds can reach extreme speeds. With the Gorilla Hut shade structure you don't have to worry!
Fits in a midsize car
Standard monkey hut designs require 10ft PVC sections. The Gorilla hut breaks down into 5ft sections!
