Our Gordigear Awning Tent Room

We have to take time to thanks Franz at Gordigear for helping us with our Tent Room [http://www.gordigear.com/car_awnings/tent_walls.php?l=en] that provided us with so many great nights while heading south towards South Africa.
The awning tent is so much lighter than the roof tents and very practical in the sense that you have so much space in the room and lots of packing space on the roof rack.

Consider getting one on your next trip!

  1. nice awning, but I am not sure during usage when you met strong rain is there any chance that the water just collected on the roof of awning and make the awning looks not very safe? I had a 3×3 awning like this, and its really become a problem when I met rains

    • Thanks for comment, yes there were some pro’s and con’s. The side tent was great in the sense that it provided loads of room, great drafts for coolness in the tropics and great mosquito protection!
      But weak point heavy rain, with pooling as you described, to help this we pulled a large sail over the tent to facilitate drainage, but a better frame to divert pooling would be the order of the day.
      thanks again for the comment, we busy putting all of this into an interesting book, should be ready in months to come!
      thanks
      Nic A
