4 Reasons to Invest in an Awning this Staycation Season

With summer over we may be saying goodbye to warmer weather, but that doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to trips into the great outdoors with your caravan or motorhome.  Investing in an awning especially for Autumn trips has a host of benefits to help you make the most of your trip no matter what the weather.

Increased Living Space

As autumn typically brings with it wetter and windier conditions, a large awning can sometime double your living space so you  don’t feel cooped up in your caravan or campervan.  Adding an awning can help you make the most of the trip with enough room for all the family. The Aadditional space with options such as an annex, privacy curtain or bedrooms means you can divide the awning into various liveable areas, giving everyone the space the enjoy the trip.

Store wet or muddy equipment

After a day of hiking, walking or exploring during autumn, things can get damp or muddy.  Save the mess inside your caravan or campervan and leave jackets,  boots or bikes in the awning.  Alternatively, should you wish to use your awning for relaxing, Tthe Vango storage organisers can keep these items neatly stored away.  Add an annex with a rear entry so you don’t have to move wet and muddy items through your awning either. 

Shop storage

Reduce Draughts

If you’re going on a break during the Autumn months and into Winter, chances are it will be quite breezy.  Attaching an awning to your caravan, motorhome or campervan will prevent cold gusts of wind blowing in every time you open the door, and even keep leaves and other debris from coming inside, whilst giving you a dry entry a little like a porch.

Retain heat inside

Adding an awning add a thermal layer to your campsite set up, meaning less heat is lost whenever the door is opened, keeping inside your vehicle warm and cosy and as the evenings draw in earlier, enjoy the outdoors in comfort for longer with a Vango awning.

Caravan Awnings

For early Autumn adventures, there’s space for all the family in the Tuscany annex, available in 380 or 420.  Featuring our Sentinel Elegance fabric, ideal for touring caravanners, and with the option to expand your living or storage area even further with the Tuscany Tall Annex, this inflatable caravan awning is ideal for when the weather is still mild. 


If you are an avid year-round adventurer, the Vango All-Season awnings range featuring Sentinel Tencate fabric, will stand strong in all weather.  Appreciate autumn and winter scenery from either the Florence 420 or Vienna 400 caravan awnings, designed for every adventure. 

Motorhome and Campervan Awnings

When the weather turns cool, a drive away awning featuring our polycotton fabric will help retain heat inside your awning and minimise condensation. The Jura inflatable awning is ideal for short breaks away where extra space is needed for storage or a table and chairs, or for longer trips, the Rhone is a flexible and spacious addition to your campervan or motorhome.
