Single Person Pitch – This awning is so lightweight they can be fed into the awning channel by a single person. They are also extremely easy to erect and peg, so they can be pitched by a single person. Before we give an item the single person pitch logo, we test them by fully pitching them ourselves with one person.
Minimal Quick-Fit Frame – This awning has the minimal quick-fit frame system. This means it uses the minimal number of poles making it smaller and easier to use. The frame is also adjustable. This is extremely useful when you pitch on uneven ground. Thanks to its adjustable nature it can be extended or shrunk to cater for uneven ground, slopes or obstacles which you can find on many pitches, helping you to always pitch correctly.
Quest Tec 75 Fabric – This is a modern, lightweight fabric. It has a high-performance coating giving it an extremely high waterproof rating, whilst helping to keep the weight down and the pack size smaller. The fabric is naturally water repellent, which means it quick to dry, making it easier to dry the awning back at home if it is put away wet. It also means that it is easy to clean as most dirt is just washed off with water as the dirt is not ‘soaked in’ like it can on some heavier fabrics. The technical specification of the fabric is 75D and a hydrostatic head (HH) of 3,000 mm. The advanced coating on this lightweight fabric also means that it is protected against the harmful sun’s rays and helps extend its lifespan. This same coating also gives it a UPF rating of 50+, which is the highest possible, giving you great protection from the sun as well.
Very Small Pack Size – This awning uses the minimal quick-fit frame system, which is very small, especially when packed away. The lightweight fabric also allows it to be rolled and folded to an exceedingly small size. These two options together mean that these awnings pack down to an exceedingly small pack size, much smaller than its air rivals and smaller than you would think for an awning. This makes the awning easier to store away when not in use and easier to pack into your vehicle when loading ready for your break.
Built in Drive Away Kit – This awning has dual beading. It has both 4 and 6mm beading sewn into the tunnel to ensure it can be used on any type of connection (standard awning channel, any roll out awning (such as Thule Omnistor, or Fiamma F45 etc.). The beading can also be zipped on and off. This removes the need for a drive away kit as you simply unzip the beading when you want to drive away and zip it back on when you come back. This also allows for a much better connection to the vehicle. When using a drive away kit you have a number of figure of eight pieces and double sided beading strip in between your awning and vehicle. This is not a strong or as stable connection as this single zipped beading and the single, zipped beading also means the awning is closer to your vehicle, thus reducing the potential for a gap at the back by the tunnel allowing for a better connection.
Rear Draught Pads – Most caravan awnings all have rear draught pads, but virtually no drive away awnings do, but this one does. These rear draught pads mean that when up against your vehicle it makes a better, tighter seal against the side of the van giving you a better fit. The pad can also help if you find you have a gap between the tunnel and your vehicle as it can be used to fill this gap. It also means you can use the optional (purchased separately) rear poles which push the draught pads against the vehicle giving you an even tighter seal and better connection.
