Terrafirma 2.5m awnings are easy to mount to a roof rack or other solid structure, either direct from the integral mounting extrusion or using the mounting brackets provided. Set up takes just a few minutes, ideally with 2 people. The grey 400d water resistant ripstop fabric extends 2.1m away from the vehicle and is tensioned using extendable alloy beams and supported by 2 alloy twist & lock poles. Strong guy ropes keep the awning in place once set up. When stowed away the awning and poles all fit perfectly into its own built in heavy duty PVC coated nylon cover.
