A little while ago I purchased an ARB Roof Rack Awning .

It cost $395 plus fitting , with the idea of using it on over nighters & as a day run trip shelter if needed at lunch time etc .
It's not bad for the price but have had issues with the cam-lock poles . Some of these have had a bad batch of cam-locks put in them . If you get one & it has that issue , then just let the ARB store where you got it know so they can get new replacement cam-locks in for you !

Here's a picture of it basically set-up

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

You have to wonder about the cost of such things.
I just put a fully self supported wind out awning on the house, about the same size $180.00

If you had made it just that little bit wider and put wheels under those poles, I could get under it and drive beside you down the freeway in the shade.

Looks good and will be handy.

Hey Shad , well mine really only has had the cam-lock pole issue , but with what you wrote - all up I can't really recommend one to anyone , even tho' rival company ones cost a lot more !

G'day lokka

Yeah a good ol'tarp is great for a 2 night stop or longer  , the set-up I put on is for our own use on over nighters when we don't move from camp [like the Wattagans over-nighter with Mick & Paulio] or if need be lunch stops etc .

Yep i understand tho i cant justify the cost of one of the rollout's  Shocked Shocked Shocked

That tarp in the above pic is 20' x16' and like i said takes 5 min to set up is free standing with 4 poles/ropes/pegs and the whole lot cost about $120 bucks and is a must out on the beach in the summer  Grin Grin Grin Grin
