Rear Awning

Post by PJ_Bristol » Sun Jul 18, 2021 10:30 pm

I have done a bit of searching on here but not quite found the answer I am looking for...

I am looking for a driveaway awning, ideally that is versatile enough to fit either to the back or to the side. I would like it to seal up to my Bingu (yes that's her name) so it keeps the rain out. I have seen this one, has anyone else used one? Or open to any other recommendations...

Thank you in advance...

Morning all

I've also been looking at the Vango Tailgate Hub. It looks slightly more expensive than the Cayman, but very similar in design and almost identical in size (5cm shorter).

Has anyone got either of these and could comment on which is better and why?

Not seen or tried either, but remember the mirror on the tailgate. :wink:

Hey Bob, thank you, yes that's been something I've been considering, I'm really hoping someone else has successfully attached a rear awning with the mirror in place.....

I've come across this Outdoor Revolution model which is built for a high line van, but I'm figuring it would allow space for the mirror too
