What are Motorhome drive away awnings?
A motorhome drive away awning is a specific type of awning, specially designed to suit most standard motorhomes, caravans and campervans. Similar to all awning types, a motorhome drive away awning will make for a spacious addition to your camping vehicle, whether that’s a motorhome, caravan or campervan.
A motor home drive away awning will securely attach to the side of your vehicle, which can then be easily unclipped and left freestanding whenever required.
What’s the difference between a regular awning and a drive away awning?
A motorhome drive away awning differs from a regular awning because it can be unclipped from your vehicle, leaving the awning fully assembled, as opposed to having to pack it away like a regular awning. This will leave the motorhome drive away awning freestanding, which can then be reattached whenever you’re ready. What’s more, motorhome drive away awnings are incredibly easy to erect and dismantle, ensuring that you can spend more time enjoying your outdoor holiday.
