What are Awnings

An awning is a framed shelter that is attached onto a side of a caravan , RV or motor home to give additional living and storage space when on a campsite. They can be a cost effective way of increasing the space available when you are on holiday. Take care as the extra space available can be tempting to cram that little bit extra in your luggage which can make you overloaded.

How Big an Awning do I need?

How to measure your Caravan - First level the van then take a flexible tape or cord and starting at the ground, pass the cord or tape as near to the centre of the channelling gap as practicable and back to the ground level at the other end to find dimension 'a'. At the widest points of the caravan 'b' the tape or cord should drop direct to the ground. Modern awnings are not designed to follow the underside contours of the channelling.

Always fit and get familiar with your awning before going on your main holiday
This advice seems obvious to most caravanners but it has been known for people to go off abroad with out opening the package! Apart from ensuring the correct size and all items have been packed, you need time to fit the awning properly without any rush and hurry.

Keeping your awning in tip to condition - Storing your awning

Framework should always be stored unassembled i.e. do not store poles one inside of the other, as condensation is a major cause of rust and pole discolouration. Watch out for any signs of mildew whenever the awning has been packed in a hurry without complete drying beforehand. Mildew is a fungus which attacks fabrics only when stored in a wet or even slightly damp condition If you are forced to pack an awning wet, and sometimes you have no alternative!, then do get it out on the frame again as soon as possible. It does not matter if it is still raining.

As no maker will guarantee awnings against storm damage, we strongly advise Insurance cover against this and other risks. Awnings are manufactured for touring caravans and are not designed to be erected permanently.
