Buying a Vehicle Awning

If you’ve ever gone camping with your car, beach driving, taking an extended road trip, then you need a car awning! Like a sun porch awning, the retractable fold-out allows you to create a camp or picnic site quickly. Spending extended periods on the road can get uncomfortable and expensive. Save money on hotels and eating out when you construct a safe place to cook and relax outdoors as you take a break from driving. Car awnings protect you from harsh elements such as the sun, rain, snow, and even wind! Let theLAShop show you how to buy the perfect awning for your vehicle. Here are the questions you need to ask: 

Is Your Car Awning Adjustable? 

Your car awning needs to fit atop your car neatly, so be sure that your awning can attach to the roof-rack system of your vehicle! Different models are shaped differently, so before you purchase your vehicle awning, make sure that it is adjustable and can actually fit your car. Some awnings are customizable with features that can be added to give your campsite more coverage.

Is the Material Weather Proof? 

Never assume that all car awnings are waterproof. Also, take into consideration that waterproof does not always mean weatherproof. Still, purchase a weatherproof awning to protect yourself from both the sun and the rain. Even if you live in generally dry areas, an unexpected rainstorm and destroy your property and ruin your trip.

420D oxford fabric with a 200mm PU coating offers UV50+ protection and is water-resistant, so it protects you from all the harsher elements. 

How’s the Metal?

Does your awning come with installation hardware? Is your metal strong enough to stand against the wind without bending or cracking? Purchase an awning that uses stainless steel and tough aluminum alloy to ensure a sturdy setup. Trust us; nothing is worst than chasing your campsite as it flies away with the wind!

Is Your Awning Easy to Setup?

When you’re ready to relax, the last thing we want to do is put you to work! Your car awning should quickly set up in just a few minutes using the self-adhesive straps and twist-lock design. Never spend too much time setting up or breaking down your awning, as your vacation is all about peace and tranquility.
