An Awning isn't just a "tent on the side", it's and extension of the living area of your Touring Caravan or Motorhome, and could be just the thing you need to change a good holiday, in to an excellent one.
If it's more space you're after, somewhere extra to sleep or just a place to keep the kids, an Awning is the perfect addition. Surprisingly, the concept of the Awning is a lot older then many think, and its history can be a quite interesting read.
To correctly measure your caravan for an awning, you must measure from the ground to the awning rail, wrapping around to the top of the van, along the top and back down to the ground again. This is called the ‘A’ measurement, and is crucial to know as a too long or too short awning will not fit properly within the awning rail.
Although this information is often found in your owners manual, we would recommend that you measure the size yourself, as the manual you have may be a replacement and could be for a different year leading to a slightly different specification.
Tradition lead acid batteries, which are the current standard, are heavy, can leak, and must be removed in the winter to prevent damage. Lithium Ion Batteries don’t suffer from this and generally have a much longer life span. The X20 and X30 batteries from PowerXtreme are much lighter, completely maintenance free, can be fully discharge (something that normally kills the standard batteries) and although the capacity may seem very low, they are actually able to produce a continuous current equal to 100A, enough for almost all motor movers.
