Can anyone recommend a place to buy or brands of campervan awnings?
I need one to fit a Toyota Hi-Ace Reimo conversion.
Doesn’t need to be very big just big enough for 2-3 adults to sit under and a couple to sleep in.
Now that we have a little one we have been demoted to outside again!Posted 8 years agoa11ySubscriber
After much searching we’ve just bought a Khyam awning – one of the “quick erect” ones that supposedly goes up in 10 mins. I think we’ve bought the Motordome Classic model, have yet to test it though.Posted 8 years agojackstaMember
We are shopping for awnings at the moment (VW T25) and went to a caravan place just east of Horsham – they are all set up and you can walk around them. Chose a Suncamp Aspect, sounds perfect for what you want it for…our problem was van height. Our van is only 180cms high which leaves you with only two choices, the Khyam tourer or the Just kampers one, both twice the price of the suncamp one and heavier / bulkier to cart around 🙁Posted 8 years agojackstaMember
BillOddie – height to gutter rail because the bit the goes from the awning structure and attaches to the van needs to be taught / not flap or hold water. Our van is actually 210cms high which is what I was using to internet research with but it turns out that the heights they quote are for the attachment point.
We have the added complication of a pop top which rules out the awnings which can use a rope over the van to secure. If your roof doesnt pop then you might be able to use the sucker attachmentsPosted 8 years agorogerthecatMember
Got a Khayam, had others and would not go back.Posted 8 years ago
Can put it up on my own in about 10 mins max, even in wind only takes 15 mins and a bit of care. The others were a nightmare.
Also you need to think about how it will fare when you have driven away and the wind hits it. Our old one was only hanging on by 1 peg 2 years ago when we got back to it. The Khayam suffered horrendous weather in Ireland last summer and never faultered.
Only criticism is watch your sliding door as it can tear the awning to van bellows if you are not careful – otherwise a brilliant bit of kit. (also packs away in 10 mins)
