About our range of campervan awnings
At Outback Jacks we stock a great range of campervan awnings from top brands, including both air awning and poled awning varieties. An awning is an essential piece of kit for any campervan owner as it offers easy access to additional living space whilst on the road. For not much effort, you can access space that's ideal for socialising, or extra space for food preparation and dining, or camping in when in a larger group.
The campervan awnings available here range right from the simplest touring canopies to sophisticated designs that are on par with the best family tents. Depending on the type you opt for you can use the space for a whole variety of uses. For example, by setting up a table and chairs within a more open awning you can easily enjoy the beautiful surroundings with a little shelter, so it won't matter so much if it begins to rain a bit. The more developed, tent-like awnings offer an enclosed space that could even be used for a proper living area in which to sleep.
Awning spaces are particularly good when the air is warmer and the weather is milder. They often feature meshed ventilation windows to keep the fresh air flowing throughout whilst keeping the local insects at bay. The fact of the matter is a campervan awning is a versatile space, and the manufacturers have designed them in such a way so that the possible uses are endless.
Campervan air awnings are incredibly easy to set up. Whereas with the more traditional poled awnings you need to thread the poles through the tent to erect the structure, with an air awning things are much less painstaking. To erect an air awning all you need to do is simply unfurl the awning and then inflate the beams, cutting down the set-up time substantially and making it a job that in most cases just one person could handle.
You might be wondering about the structural integrity of an air beam, but in actual fact air tents and awnings really hold their own against their poled counterparts and in some aspects outperform them. Due to the flexibility of air beams for example, in stronger winds an air awning is able to give a little by allowing, to some extent, the whole structure to sway with the wind.
Air awnings are relatively new technology and as such you will find that they are a higher price in comparison to poled campervan awnings. So, if you are after an awning but for less, whilst maintaining high-quality, then we would highly recommend checking out the range of poled awnings. These awnings are perfect for families or if you just want a bit of extra storage space on your travels when you set up camp. Have a look through our selection of poled awnings and you will see that we have the latest models from the leading names in the game.
