    Default What size Awning will you recommend?

    I planning a trip to Kaokoveld and thinking of buying an awning fitted to my roof rack. They coming in lengths of 1.4m, 2.0m and 2.5m. The 2.0m is the length of my FR roof rack on my Fortuner but some people say buy the longer one but that means it will extent 0.5m passed my roof rack. I am bit worried that it will cause a lot of wind noise and what about branches get caught by the 0.5 m.

    Please help I have to make up my mind ASAP.

    I would stick to the 2.0 as per the roof rack length.
    Make it happen!

    I went through this exercise recently and settled on the 3.0m Howling Moon, (although this is fixed to the trailer) the 2,0m is far too small and you might as well use a beach umbrella IMO. Go for the 3.0m or at the very least the 2.5m.

    2m is too small.

    Agree with this. Have Ostrich Wing with lights fitted into the Awning arms which give surround lighting around the campsite. Awninggets used everyday as it takes less than 25 seconds to open and less than 45 seconds to pack away...
