    Driveaway awnings

    KDL, a Romahome Duo, needs a driveaway awning. Something not too big? Enough to sit in and hang a wet jacket at the same time? Any ideas? Would consider second hand. Advice and/or photos appreciated.

    Similar situation here and also with Roma Outlook Duo
    I took a good look at one of these on a camp site near Dartmouth last week

    Owners commet was "putting up is a doddle but to take down/ put away - make sure you see the YouTube vids and PRACTICE"

    Seems to fit what I want. There are comments/ reviews elsewhere on this forum and all seem positive.
    Not a "proper" awning in that it does not attach to the vehicle but I do not see that as a problem.

      Thanks Snod. I particularly want something that does not attach.

        Popups are strictly not awnings, they are tents and you might be charged extra for one at some campsites but most dont care!
        The whole idea of an awning is that it is a rain proof extension to your van, so you generally have a fabric tunnel that goes over the back of the van to keep you dry.

        The Movelite range of drive away awnings are like this, and there are cheaper versions around.

        The choice as always is yours

        Happy camping !

              Any Jobsworth tries to charge me an extra because the tent/ free awning does not attach will get the benefit of my tongue and NONE of my money - I will just move. For years I have used a modest dome tent next to the camper just for storage and have never been charged for that as an extra on any site. In the last month I have stayed at 4 CCC sites and none of those made any charges for the storage tent
