I gotcha there but there are 2 stakes that loop through the tent that form an X that support the canopy, they go through the holes in the tent that you drew and with a hook like that there would be no room for them. I will see if I can dig up a pic of the tent.

Thanks for the advice so far its getting me in the right direction

Alright for anyone searching on this topic, heres how I did mine. I took advice from this thread and my woman and got her set up so she aint going anywhere.

Doing some work on my gf's moms car and she paid me by buying us a tent. We picked out a 7ftx8ft tent that fits 2 twin matresses with room to spare. Then took some eye hooks, drilled a pilot hole and using a vice grips, threaded them in. Then used a carribeaner to the eye hook and ring on the tent and secured it. Very sturdy!











They make eye hooks with a nut so if you have a metal deck trailer you can make it work too. Thanks for everyones help
