When caravanning, even though it is a very inclusive and sociable passion, there are still times when you want peace and quiet. If you want privacy and protection against the weather but do not want to purchase an awning, a windbreak is a perfect choice to help you relax without anyone or anything bothering you. It can also be placed in front of the awning to help keep the wind off it and to give you that bit more privacy.
Most of these options come with pegs and guy-lines and are made from quality materials such as steel and polyester. You will want one that is sturdy enough to protect you against all kinds of weather and will not break quickly after use. Easy installation is also a plus.
