Awnings are an essential piece of kit for any serious 4WD camper. They not only provide shade during the day but provide shelter from the elements at night. To learn more, head to the bottom of the page!
From providing shade during the day to sheltering your tent from rain and the wind at night, a 4WD awning will have you covered. They take less than a minute to set up and are extremely easy to install to your existing roof racks. Most awnings require poles to support them and are made from heavy-duty ripstop canvas. When not in use, they are rolled into their waterproof bag, along with the support poles and guy ropes, which is secured to your roof rack.
Although some awnings already come with one, adding a LED light strip is a popular modification to those which don’t. This allows you to easily light up the space using a low-draw light source that can be connected to your 4WD’s battery system.
Awning extensions are also a great addition to your existing setup. These allow you to add walls and doors to your awning to create a tent-like structure, which helps further block wind and rain from entering the space.
