I love the foxwing awning . So much coverage from the front door to the rear doors . I just set it up and packed it away again and its easier than the oztent . I know its a thousand bucks but when i looked at the price for 2 quality awninngs like gunyah etc i just think foxwing is way easier to set up and pack away . I bought the fixings that allow you to fix it to the ends of the rhino bars . foxwing fitting kit

Ha , funny you should mention that . A squally shower just came thru and blew my banana tree over . I was neally going to run out and take the awning down because i thought it was gone , but its fine . There was so much rain i couldnt see 20 feet . And that was without the extra ropes . Just had it pegged down with the 4 poles and 4 ropes . That really scared me but good timing for the question LOL .

I was just curious about how it handles the wind. I am thinking about getting one of these for my Prado.

Sounds like you need to have the poles set up all the time? I imagine there is a lot of strain on the point where the 'arms' attach to the vehicle, especially if it is windy.

You always need to use the poles . All awnings except for one that i know of you need 2 poles at the front . It takes me 10 seconds longer to stand 4 poles up instead of 2 . It really doesnt take long . I have set it up and down at least 5 times this afternoon showing the neighbours .

Hi there Troopyman, who handles these fox wing awnings? I think you should be getting some sort of commission for the positive views.
Cheers and thanks in advance

The foxwing has quite a large undercover area .

Hi Troopyman

It looks great and easy setup, is that a tarp you have over the top of it?

Cheers

No , its part of the foxwing . No tarps needed anymore . I absolutely love it. Before i probably wouldnt have gone camping for the weekend if there were showers around . Now the odd shower is no problem .
