For seasoned campers, an awning is very often the first accessory they bolt to their vehicle, knowing that the ability to cast as much shade as possible (in the quickest time) is crucial to overland travel. What you don’t want is to be battling with poles, pegs and guy ropes in blistering midday heat, or when rain is thundering down.
This wrap-around effect means that you get to enjoy 10 square metres of shelter around the full working area of your vehicle, especially where it’s needed – at the rear, where your drawer system, fridge, and supplies are stored.
The awning features four heavy-duty aluminium arms that span the 270º spread, making the Shadow Awning resistant to inclement weather. If conditions happen to get worse, the awning’s centre arm features a tucked away drop-down pole that can be used to brace the awning for extra support. What’s more, each of the four arms boasts a tie-down strap for really gusty conditions.
