The selection in Caravan Awnings has never been greater. Whether you are looking for a simple sunshade canopy or a fully enclosed tent safe from the elements, expanding the useful outdoor space of your Caravan has never been easier. The latest awning designs and materials allow the occasional traveller or the caravanning enthusiast to find the best Awning and Accessories for their needs. But be sure to use a reputable outfitter such as Riversway Leisure when choosing your Awning.
Frequency of Use and Destination
Determining what awning to buy is first based on frequency of use and destination. An annual weekend trip to a Caravan Park in the Cairngorms region differs from wintering in the Algarve region of Portugal. Dryer climates don’t necessitate shelter from the elements that cooler a wetter regions call for. A Sun Canopy will be all that is needed for some campers in the Southern regions. But for travellers in the cooler northern regions where wind and rain can be guaranteed to visit, having mud flaps with strong closures will be essential to stay warm and dry, especially in the evenings.
The number of campers you travel with is another important consideration. A Full Awning or Patio Awning provides a great gathering place but also additional space to slumber if needed. One great feature available in some awnings is the Inner Tent option. An Inner Tent is another private area within the enclosure of your Awning that sleeps one or two people. This area doubles as a Storage space when needed. An Inner Tent is a great way to extend hospitality to a guest.
Trip Length and Number of Destination Points
Short stays will have you preferring an Awning with easy set-up and pack away features. Frequent stops along your journey require parts that are easy to position and engage yet durable enough for routine set-up and pack-up. Longer visits can find you choosing space, storage and durability in your awning. Choosing between Steel, Alloy, Fibreglass and Carbon Frames and Poles allows you to find the best fit for your budget. Although expensive, Carbon poles and frames surpass the flexibility of alloy in high winds.
Privacy may be what you prioritise in your Awning selection if you frequent busy Caravan Parks. Curtains not only provide shade but offer privacy from fellow campers and help keep valuables out of sight. Curtains add a decorative touch to your home away from home.
