My wife and I bought a 10' x 12' tarp, folded over and sewed two ends, put old tent rods in them, bought the rain gutter clamps from Bus Depot and some extensible tent poles online, and wound up with a very inexpensive and functional awning. When we go to festivals, we use spring clamps to attach it to an EZ-Up type canopy on the end furthest from the van. We put two poles on the sides and invert a taller one in the middle so the rainwater flows off to the sides. We attach lines over the top of the side poles and stake them into the ground to keep everything taut.
