Setting up your caravan awning

Learn how easy it is to set up and lower your awning effectively in our simple video.

For caravan enthusiasts, having a perfectly shaded spot while parked adds to the overall experience. But how do you ensure that you’re setting up and retracting your awning safely and effectively? In these videos, we show you these processes, making it a breeze for beginners and a quick reminder for the experts!

Setting up the awning

Our awning setup video tackles the nuances of awning setup. From the Ratchet Lever Adjustment at the very start to securing your awning for stability at the end, every step is crucial. An essential point to remember is that awnings are sensitive to wind. Even a mild breeze can cause damage, so always ensure it’s retracted when it’s windy, overnight, or when you leave the caravan. It’s a safety tip that could save you a lot of stress (and money) down the line.

Lowering the awning

In our awning take-down video, we reverse the process, making sure your awning is safely stowed for travel. The steps are straightforward, with the primary focus being on safety, especially when dealing with the Locking Ratchet’s strong spring mechanism. Properly securing the awning after retracting ensures it remains safe and undamaged, ready for your next stop.

Whether you’re a seasoned caravan traveller or a newbie, setting up and lowering your awning shouldn’t be a daunting task. With our easy-to-follow videos, you’ll be a pro in no time! Enjoy the shade, watch out for the wind, and as always, safe travels!
