We have recently bought an 11 Foot off road Pop Top caravan second hand. It has a bag awning over the rear door, to which we had an annex made.
In the driving rain it was a bit of a pain & we wondered if anyone had put a roll out ( like Dommetic over their rear door?
Any opinions would be very welcome. We think it would be a lot quicker in the wind & rain. We're hoping we could put the bag awning on the side for longer stays with the annex on it if we want.
Thanks for reading.
Take care,safe travels. Ma.

I have seen many rear opening vans that have a roll out awning on the back and side of the van.
So yes it can be done.
. Ask this company.
I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

Hi PA &MA

Because it is a rear door you have a much better chance of getting a second hand awning. Awning repairs are the largest caravan insurance claim and as a general rule, the repairer will replace the entire awning. So they have many almost new ones sitting around the "shop".

Fitting can be tricky however as getting the mounts in the right place is the worry. Most of the time, you will need to mount them slightly above the roof to allow for the door to open.

Aussie traveller is the best brand, then Dometic and get a carefree last of all. Well do not get a carefree but find one of the other 2. Not certain where you are, ie city.
