This is our set-up, but we are newbies and still struggling to park the Cali back in the right place first time round without a bit of to’ing and fro’ing! At least it keeps the other campers entertained

We have tried drive away awnings but kept coming back to our Comfortz awning because it was quick and easy. The only thing we thought it was lacking was enough light, so have now gone for a Thule G2 Residence Room.

We use the comfortz one and take off one or two of the three sides - as they are so easy to take off and put back up. Works well for a couple of nights.

Off to Beardy folk festival tomorrow in Shropshire with
  • Roll out awning
  • Outdoor revolution outhouse handi driveaway
  • Quechua popup shower tent with hand pump shower
  • 3x3 m tarp and poles
  • Couple of good, dark shower curtains
All quite frugal on travelling space.

Don’t know what configuration yet. We’re not arriving until around 6pm (dratted work) so there might not be much space left.

Here’s our Khyam Motordome yesterday. Only gets used occasionally, but seems better attached to roll out awning than directly to the van

As suspected, not much space so couldn’t connect the driveaway awning. Dog had an upset tummy in the night (hence the washing line). Kellie kettle for water and cooking brekkie.A5860131-254D-4FF1-A8D5-9F097FBE88D0.jpeg

If you have room, wind out the windy out awning. Then you only need to be straight and it doesn’t matter if your distance is out a bit. Not as much fun for the onlookers though. :)

So we've just returned from our very first trip with our T6 Beach. Learned loads even tho it was only 2 nights away but we knew this would be the case and have already started planning for this weekend.

Our biggest requirement is for an awning, 2 adults plus a 1 year old means we need some space to keep car seats and buggies etc. won't be sleeping in it but will be using it for a drink or 2 in the evening once our little girl is sleeping. So with this in mind, Show us your awing setup, lets see what everyones using and what works and what doesn't.

Cheers,
Matty
Gybe. Absolutely brilliant. Once you get the hang of it, goes up in 10 mins and down in 10mins. Quite small bag. Huge increase in living space footprint. Looks cool too imho
