Hi Guys,

Have spent time looking for a rear pull-out awning but have not had a lot of luck.
As the 120 Prado door opens to the right it means the drawers, etc, get wet when you are unpacking in the rain. Also would provide shade when having a cuppa on a hot day.
Would appreciate any suggestions on possible suppliers.

Thanks,

Bob

Bob,

One option is an awning which Ray's Tent City sell for about $95. can be attahced to the roof rack or the roof and provides great shade. Another option would be to roll some canvas - about 2.5m onto an aluminium tent poll, attach to the roof rack with some caravan annex slide and use 2 tent poles to support.

I assume "North Coast" means NSW, if so you could try ARB Gold Coast. Saw them at the Gold Coast 4WD and camping show, they had an awning for both the side and rear of roof racks, not sure of the brand name.

Give them a call.

Hi Bob,

I'm sure you have heard of the "KISS" principle?

I have a good quality poly tarp (the one with the silver lining) which can be used on the rear, sides or whereever. The time taken to attach it to the roof rack via a couple of Ocky straps, three or four poles is nothing and, makes it for more more versatile than a fixed unit.

Regards

Kim
