    Most of the smaller driveaway awnings fit on the side openings, Mike. Have a look at the link in my post #13, for an example.

      Thanks for that. The problem I may have is that the car I am thinking of using is 160cm high and the lowest awning I can find is 180! Are they adaptable or should I look for a tent/tarp solution? I do want to be able to move from cat to 'tent' privately.

          We have a Khyam quick erect awning (almost identical to my khyam 4 berth tent) on the back of our Mezan. Expensive but it is REALLY easy to put up / take down. Its flexible joints help it to stand up well to storm conditions.

            They are indeed adaptable, Mike. The driveaway awnings have a tunnel which attaches to the car, and the tunnel provides the private walkway through to a separate awning, which is freestanding and tall enough to stand up in. I could use my awning on a car also, the tunnel bit would slope downwards instead of upwards like it does on my caravan and previous campervan.

            If you type in 'driveaway awning for a car' into google, it will come up with loads of different ones that will fit. The driveaways fit onto the back of the smaller motorhomes as well, like Nomad Sue's awning in the photo above. They will also fit on cars, and stand next to them, with a tunnel connecting it to the car and that's the adaptable part.

                  OUTDOOR REVOLUTION UTILITY TENT.JPG
                  We have an OUTDOOR REVOLUTION utility tent (OUTHOUSE XL) to give us extra room for the Romahome Duo Hi

                  Its floor area is 2metres x 2 metres.
                  The groundsheet is separate.
                  The poles are fibreglass, The fabric is lightweight (the whole tent weighs around 5 k)
                  The tent had withstood very high winds.
                  The door can be attached to a couple of poles to make a canopy.
                  It cost less than £100 and can be bought on Ebay

                  It takes us around 10-15 minutes to erect

                  There is also the OUTDOOR REVOLUTION Handi XL which has 2 opening side windows, a cowl for attaching to the side of a vehicle and an opening front and back. This photo is a stock one from the internet to show what is available. Currently, the tent can be bought on ebay for around £150
