Things to look at when buying an Awning

Even though awnings are pretty straightforward, there is still a couple of things you need to look at before buying one. Here's what they are:

Size & Coverage

One of the most important things to look at when buying an awning is its size and coverage. If you camp with a lot of people then you would need a larger size awning that covers a lot of ground. However, If you only camp with 2 or 3 people then you will be fine getting an awning that can cover around 40 to 50 sq. ft.

Durability

Your Overlanding journey can be rough and you might encounter a lot of harsh weather conditions along the way. Hence, it is important to buy a durable awning that can withstand all kinds of rough conditions. It's best to avoid buying cheap awnings as most of them are built with cheap material and are not very durable.
