Clever canopy

Go! Camp & Drive - - MOTORHOME TEST -

The Bush Wing awning is re­mark­able. It fans out­ward from the Bosluis 2’s left side in a 270° arc and ends above the door at the back of the Bosluis. The awning’s arms are rigid enough to keep the can­vas aloft with­out sup­port, but if you’re wor­ried that the wind might dam­age it, you can place struts be­tween the arms, plant poles un­der­neath the arms, and se­cure guy ropes to the ground with pegs to pull the awning taut. The struts, poles, guy ropes and pegs are sup­plied.

It’s a cinch to open the awning, but short peo­ple might need a steplad­der to reach the arms. It is, how­ever, more dif­fi­cult to get the awning back into the bag. You have to wrap the can­vas tightly around the arms or it won’t fit. The bag’s zip is of­ten also fouled by dust from all the miles of travelling.
