1. A vacuum stall canopy system for covering and defining a vehicle wash bay comprising:
a plurality of canopy supports each defining a side of a vehicle wash bay and wherein the plurality of canopy supports comprise a first canopy support and a second canopy support and wherein the first canopy support comprises:
a first canopy post assembly having a first canopy base leg attached to a mounting surface; and
a first canopy support beam attached to the top of the first canopy post assembly at first canopy support engagement location and extending forward and backward from the first canopy support engagement location and wherein the first canopy support base leg engages the mounting surface at a first predefined angle; and
wherein the second canopy support comprises:
a second canopy post assembly having a second canopy base leg attached to the mounting surface; and
a second canopy support beam attached to the top of the first canopy post assembly at first canopy support engagement location and extending forward and backward from the first canopy support engagement location and wherein the second canopy support base leg engages the mounting surface at a second predefined angle;
a roof panel coupled to a portion of the first canopy support beam and configured to span between the first canopy support beam of the first canopy support and the second canopy support beam of the second canopy support;
a debris separator disposed on at least one of the plurality of canopy supports, the debris separator having a first side and a second side;
