Read on to discover the best awnings for VW campervans…
Why should you invest in an awning for a VW campervan?
There are many reasons why investing in an awning for your VW campervan is a great idea. To determine whether it’s worth it for you, here are a few of the main benefits of an awning:
Awnings are easy to set up and provide campers with a more spacious and sheltered space during their outdoor holiday.
An awning is a perfect feature for when you’re planning on camping in wet weather and/or when the winds are strong, as they are made to withstand harsh elements.
Similar to how they will protect you from unfavourable weather, an awning will also provide a sheltered escape from harsh UV rays when the sun is out.

Whether it’s a retro VW T2 or a brand new VW T6, these iconic cars are often the kings of the campsite. And, with campervan conversions becoming more and more popular in the UK, more and more owners can simply start the engine and cruise off on a camping trip without a second thought.
