Easy to mount and operate, these retractable awnings fit on to the side of a roof rack, and are conveniently stored for immediate use on arrival. specifically designed for harsh outback conditions, the awnings are rugged but lightweight, and provide fast and convenient protection from the elements.- shade cover made from pvc lined polyester - waterproof and uv protected- self standing awning takes 30 seconds to deploy- awning is secured in a heavy duty nylon reinforced pvc bag- mounts easily to the side of most roof racks or roof bars- awning height adjustable with telescopic legs- optional mosquito net available for extra protection- comes with pegs and guy ropes for securing legs, mounting nuts and bolts, spanner and comprehensive instructions- size:1250mm (49.21')
I installed this on the side of a toy hauler trailer for sun and rain protection. When properly staked and guy lined, it is a very solid structure. Some little picky things will need personalization (for me anyway). The stake out loops are strangely undersized but can be easily upgraded, and the loose weave guy ropes provided get caught in velcro and prickly vegetation. On the bright side, it's a breeze to set up, take down, and make adjustments. The anodized poles prevent hands from getting dirtied up from aluminum smut (oxide). The fabric dries fast and is decently heavy duty. This unit saved me a lot of money (and weight) over traditional RV awnings. If you install this unit on anything with a thick wall you will need M6 bolts of the appropriate length, the included bolts are only 20mm.

2500 x 2500 transport failure
I purchased the ARB 2500 x 2500 awning and anex room about 8 months ago. I have traveled about 25,000 miles and have used the awning in various weather conditions. The awning and annex room have held up very well. No rips, no tears, no busted zippers. Completely satisfied with the awning and annex room. Only failure is the transportation cover. The leading edge has started to come apart at the seam. I will have to get this repaired or replaced before infiltration of elements cause damage to the fabric of the awning. Keep in mind. This setup is constantly mounted to my truck and traveled 25k miles away road speeds. If it were not for this failure i would give it 5 stars. I will still highly recommend this product. Contact me for setup pics and failure location.
