What is a Driveaway Awning?
Driveaway awnings are fantastic for adding extra space without taking away from your daily mobility.
Think of a driveaway awning as a tent with a tunnel that attaches to your vehicle’s gutter or fixing rail. Once you’ve set up your awning, it’s a quick and easy job to disconnect it and drive away. And just as quick to reattach it when you get back. There’s no need to dismantle or deflate it and you can leave your camping furniture safely inside when you head off to explore.
Driveaway awnings are very popular with campervan and motorhome owners. They are usually lightweight, simple to put up and easy to store when not in use. They are great to set up as a dining area with chairs and a table; or maybe an extension to your camping kitchen; or even as an extra bedroom if you need it.
What size awning do I need?
This is a question we get asked a lot! The most important thing to check is the attachment height. Your vehicle should have a gutter rail or an awning rail. Measure up from the ground to the rail – do this on the flat for accuracy.
When you look through the driveaway awnings on our website, click on the specifications tab for each model and check the connection height minimum and maximum measurements. Most awnings will fit the most popular models of campervan but be sure to double-check this before you buy – especially if you have a large motorhome.
