A5 Expedition fly on a BD Cliff Cabana Double?
« on: September 13, 2010, 10:56:51 am »
I guess the thread title says it all; Does anyone know if the A5 expedition fly fits on a BD Cliff Cabana Double?

I have the Simple fly but I'd feel warmer and fuzzier if I had a little more protection overhead. I can get the BD Deluxe fly relatively cheap but the A5 expedition even cheaper. Any beta out there?

Thanks,

Ryan :)

My A5 ledge didn't even fit into my A5 expedition fly until I took 3/8" off the main tubing!  Not that that helps.  Good luck.

Balto, FWIW we have a thread which lists the bed dimensions of many different ledges. If you have/can get the fly dimensions seems like you'd have a pretty close answer.
Say no to limbers, excavators and retro-bolters. No matter how much he smiles.

Where did you get the A5 Expedition fly from?

A friend of mine has one collecting dust. I figured I'd ask here before I bothered trying it out. I'll report back.

Thanks

If you don't end up buying it and he/she wants to sell it please let me know. I've been trying to find one for several years!

John
Whether I buy it or not I'm happy to try and get it to you after my trip. I'm happy to buy the BD version, I just don't want to spend the dough right now and need one right now. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks,

Ryan :)
