You may be familiar with the simple window or door awning that appears like a piece of fabric spread over a frame. You can find it overhanging in residences and storefronts, sheltering the outside wall from severe weather conditions. Other awnings are oversized and freestanding, ideal for applications in a porch, breezeway or deck not unlike tents, canopies, gazebos and carports. A particular type, the caravan porch awning, is one you put up next to a camper van, RV, motor home, touring caravan or travel trailer when it is parked on location, such as during a family summer trip.
Expanding the space for meals, leisure, sleeping and stowing are some desirable uses of a caravan porch awning. If it is a universal porch awning, then it is further handy in your house. It can be transformed into a sun room when you pop out the front and side walling, have an annex for accommodating an older child who wants privacy at night, serve as a play area for younger children and even as a house for the watch dog.
For increased adaptability, the front and side sections are usually separable and wholly zipped out, featuring door and window openings that are also zipped out and perhaps made with mesh to provide ventilation. Roofing may be waterproof, heat-reflective or even seamless to be longer-lasting. A third important component would be poles for holding the awning up while pegging plus ladders and rubbers, straps and guy ropes keep it down together. The choices you can find spans full awnings, camper awnings, caravan awnings, standard and tall annexes, retractable awnings, porch awnings, parts and accessories.
