Barndoor Shack

Designed around the VW T5, the Barndoor Shack is the daddy of the Packashack family, with walls tapering out from roof to base to provide a larger internal space than the barndoors would otherwise allow. Packa Shacks are intended to be used as a temporary shelter or changing room.

The Barndoor Shack comes in the Bottom Up Opening version with three independent zips on the front panel, a vertical zip on either side and one along the bottom, allowing you to use the whole front panel as an awning to extend the space offered by the Shack.

Or if you’re just nipping in or out to get changed, you can open one of the side zips to create a ‘slit’ entrance.

All Shacks come with skirting under the vehicle to keep the midges out and small children and dogs in!

Add awning poles to extend the space your Shack offers by turning the fully opening panel into a 2m deep awning. Add to cart here.
