Awnings for campers are a great way to add a little extra seating space, working space or even dining space to your cramped quarters in the camper. Choosing a camper van awning that can be easily put up, but is strong enough to withstand the natural elements is important.
Fiamma Camper Awnings
A worthy contender in the area is the Fiammastor, an offering from Fiamma. Reputed to be very lightweight, the Fiammastor is easy to put up, and is fully extended in next to no time. There are many conveniences to this camper awning. First off, doors and windows can be kept open even in rainy weather, allowing for air circulation throughout the camper.
In hot weather, simply putting up the Fiammastor camper awning can reduce temperatures inside the camper by as much as twenty degrees. You could even use the Fiammastor camper awning as a form of protection against the weather. Take off your wet gear under the confines of the awning, and keep your camper clean and dry. If you have ever had to take off wet squelching boots inside a camper, you'll know what a veritable treat a dry camper can be!
A simpler variant is the Rhino Rack Sunseeker awning. A rather simpler affair, this model has the important advantages of cost and convenience. A simple two-legged affair, the Rhino Rack Sunseeker simply uses the rail of your camper as support, with two legs on the other end providing cover for whoever happens to be underneath. Very quick to set up and dismantle, the Rhino Rack Sunseeker is the model for you if are on a limited budget, or if space comes at an increasing premium.
Whichever model you end up choosing, you'd do well to carry a camper awning along on your road trips. The weather can be notoriously fickle, and some form of protection from the natural elements is always welcome. So go ahead and get yourself one!
