Caravan Awning - Travelling In Style
By Dion Semeniuk
More and more people today are finding that vacationing via road trip is an exciting and fun way to see new things and experience the countryside. With a caravan, you can drive through small historical towns, trace family roots, visit roadside parks, and have the opportunity of a lifetime to explore within your own state or country. A caravan is literally a home away from home, offering all the conveniences while having flexibility to travel.
To enhance the functionality and style of your caravan, an awning instantly changes the appearance and space of your caravan. Best of all, caravan awnings come in wonderful choices of shapes, styles, sizes, and colors, fitting any caravan and budget. Typically, you would expect to find a caravan awning made with a steel or aluminum frame, which provides strength and durability. Then, if you choose to go with an annex, you actually create more space. For example, if traveling with a family, the caravan can be parked, the awning extended, and the annex set up. The result is an entire new room where people can sleep, eat, or just hang out.
For the actual awning material, acrylic or polyester tend to be the most popular choices in that these types of fabric are tear resistant and hold up well when exposed to sunlight. By adding a caravan awning, the overall appearance will change. For instance, if your caravan is solid white, you could add a splash of color with a blue and white striped or solid red awning. On the other hand, you might want to create a more elegant look by choosing a tape and white striped awning or even one with varying thickness of gray and blue strips. The possibilities as far as appearance are endless.
