One of the most popular accessories caravan and motor-home owners tend to invest in is an awning of some kind. However, many awnings are cumbersome and require a lot more maintenance and installation. As an alternative then, you can invest in a sun canopy for your caravan, which is a lighter and simpler form of an awning. This means you have all the benefit of being able to enjoy the sun and when it gets too hot or uncomfortable, you still have a shaded area too without all the hassle of having to set up a full frame and awning system.
Thanks to the fact they are less complex in design and structure, they are also easier to store away and take up much less room in your caravan or car storage. When it comes to setting up caravan sun canopies, they are, as we noted incredibly fast and simple. In fact, some manufacturers and customers claim many models can be erected and fully set up in around 5 minutes.
