Picking the best motorhome awning for your travels can be a great way to give yourself some valuable extra space when you’re on tour.
The Practical Motorhome Awards 2022 are here to help you make the important decision about which awning is the best for you, as we reveal our top pick, as well as the other standout motorhome awnings.
The best motorhome awning is…
Kampa Sprint Air
Designed mainly for campervans, Kampa’s new drive-away awning should take much of the hassle out of giving you just that little bit more living space.
It’s lightweight, at just over 12kg, so it should be easy for anyone to lug around, yet it’s made of fully waterproof 68D denier. It’s easy to assemble with multiple inflation point air poles, and the large windows either side should bring plenty of light into the interior. Doors in the tunnel make it easy for anyone to access the get out of the camper van quickly too.
Although the main awning body is only 1.5m deep, and wet weather canopy adds and extra 90cm, so you could leave muddy shoes and other items out there and the would stay safely out of the wet.
Kampa has made taking the awning on and off your campervan that little bit easier too, with a dual keder fitting that matches both 4mm and 6mm awning rails.
Price: £475 at www.dometic.com
The other standout motorhome awnings are…
A rear mounted pole awning suitable for VW Transporters and similarly sized vehicles, the Sandcrest is built from lightweight aluminium poles that easily collapse so it won’t take up too much room. It can be left free standing too.
