Tony’s Truck Shades came about to solve a problem for myself and hopefully thousands of others who tailgate, and need some extra shade in their own space and over their truck! I was tired of being chased out of the space next to my truck. Here’s the usual scenario… I would set up my Easy-Up, chairs, table and barbeque, and get comfortable. The stadium police would roll up and inform us that we were only allowed to party and set up in one parking space. The space next to me with all my gear would be needed for additional game attendees. The idea of a shade structure, or canopy that would set up very easily over the bed of my truck was born!
