Not all campers come equipped with camper awnings. Camper awnings can act as a sunshade or shelter from a light rain in many cases. An awning is an incredibly useful feature to have when spending great amount of time in the great outdoors.
Who wants to sit inside the camper when all the fun is happening outside, just because of a little sun? With camper awnings, this is no longer a problem, sit in the shad of the awning and enjoy the time with family and friends out in nature.
There are a variety of camper awnings available, depending on your camper’s design and construction. However, most designs of camper awnings will work for just about any camper.
There are two main types of camper awnings. One is the retractable type, which is fixed to the side of the camper. The other is the stand-alone awning, which is made for light framed campers or other structures. Camper awnings not only provide shade from the sun or rain outside of the camper, but when placed over the windows, help keep the interior of the camper cool as well.
When shopping around for camper awnings, it is important to look at not only the quality of the awnings but also their ease of use. It is a good idea to go for the camper awnings that are made well, but are also designed to be easily set up and installed.

In most cases, camper awnings come in kits which require assembly. Any good camper awning manufacturer will include a detailed instruction manual for quick and easy set up and installation.
The manual should also include tips for care and storage when not in use. Usually, the kit includes the awning, arms and/or braces, horizontal rafters, and overhanging blinds or shades for added shelter. Many camping enthusiasts choose to set up the awning once they arrive at the campsite and leave up the top part the entire time, so it acts as a patio of sorts for the camper.
