Set up your caravan awning quickly: Inflatable air duct caravan awnings

If you want to set up your caravan awning particularly quickly, you can choose an inflatable awning with an air channel. These inflatable caravan awnings are inflated within a few minutes using a pump. Without the hassle of putting together poles.

Advantages of the air awning

  • Low weight: The fact that no conventional poles have to be dragged along means that the inflatable air awning is naturally also lighter than a caravan awning that has to be put together.
  • Saves time: An inflatable caravan awning can be set up quickly. This is particularly practical if you are only spending a few days on a campsite and don't want to waste a lot of time setting up.
  • Can also be set up alone: If you are alone, it is easier to set up an inflatable awning than one where you have to put poles together and possibly need another hand.

Setting up the caravan awning

What do you need the awning for? To create an additional sleeping area? Then we have a large selection of camping beds and camp beds for you here. You can easily create an additional comfortable bed. Our camping beds are available in many different sizes - for two people, for example.

If you want to cook as comfortably as at home while on holiday, we recommend setting up a large kitchen in your caravan awning. You can find a large selection of kitchen cabinets for camping in our camping cabinets section. You can create a beautiful kitchen that leaves nothing to be desired.

Or would you prefer a seating area in your caravan awning? Then you have enough space in the awning to set up a large table. And of course for comfortable camping chairs.

Alternatively, you can also set up a comfortable sofa in the caravan awning. We offer inflatable sofas in our air furniture category.

A caravan awning therefore offers many possibilities. And no matter how you set up your awning, it will always provide you with plenty of space and additional comfort when camping.

Caravan awning for the winter

Even - or especially - in winter, a caravan awning offers a huge gain in comfort. An additional room that you can also heat is a great advantage, especially in winter. When buying, make sure that the tent is suitable for winter. For example, there is an inflatable winter awning from Dometic with a steeper roof and additional snow support poles included for even better stabilisation.

What water column should my caravan awning have?

What is the water column? The water column is a measure of the impermeability of tents, outdoor clothing or other outdoor equipment. And of course you should also pay attention to the water column of a caravan awning. Basically, the higher the water column, the better or more waterproof the material.

But when is a caravan awning considered waterproof? The following guide values apply to tents:

  • A tent is considered waterproof from a water column of 3,000 mm.
  • A tent floor should have a water column of at least 8,000 mm to be truly waterproof.

Buying the right caravan awning: Which awning for which caravan?

Have you decided to buy a caravan awning? And now you're faced with the decision of which one to choose? Caravan awnings are available in different sizes and dimensions. And you should of course make sure that the awning fits your caravan. To find the right caravan awning, you should pay attention to the following information:

  • Keder retraction length: As a rule, your caravan should have a keder rail. And most caravan awnings have a piping attached that is pulled through this piping rail. This allows you to firmly connect your awning to your caravan and create a watertight and stable transition. When buying a caravan awning, you should make sure that the length of the piping of the caravan awning matches the length of your piping rail.
  • Keder thickness: The same applies to the keder thickness. The piping thickness of the tent & the thickness of your piping rail should be identical.
  • Connection height: The connection height is the height at which your keder rail is located. Here too, the connection height of the tent should match the height of the piping rail.
  • Please also note: There are partially retractable and fully retractable tents
