By now you may have seen a few of these pictures on my main thread but this is my Olpro Cocoon Breeze Inflatable Campervan Awning.
The awning with the extension (The area with the cooking gear) is huge! I reckon I could park in it. When searching for an awning I wanted something big enough to keep all of the kitesurfing gear as well as the camping gear in and would be suitable for trips longer that a couple of nights. It had to have a stitched in floor and be inflatable. Options here in Australia are limited and way overpriced. So importing from the UK was the best solution.
The main awning is inflatable with three arched struts and three horizontal beams running along the top.
The extension has one arch only. To attach the extension you just unzip the door off the main awning and zip the extension on in its place.
The tunnel to the van worked great.
As you can see from the pictures I just used the included straps over the roof of the van to secure it to the awning. I do have a magnetic figure of 8 mounting system but have yet to sort that out.
Being the first time using this setup I pegged out all the yellow storm straps as well as the guy ropes. This seemed like overkill but I was keen to try everything. I also installed the inner tent although I didn't intend on needing it.
On the first night we had loads of rain and 20 knot winds, gusting up to 30 knots.
Got to say the setup worked great (Keep in mind that I was sleeping in the van so to be honest the whole thing could have blown away and I wouldn't have noticed until I woke up). There was no water ingress anywhere. The awning was obviously moving around in the wind as you would expect but it handled it with no problems.
