Whether you’re a camper or an off-road adrenaline junkie, there’s no denying that an awning is one of the most popular 4X4 accessories. If you’ve got one in tow, you’ve got the ability to pull up and have a cuppa or a snooze break from driving wherever you choose to. Bushwakka has upped their game and introduced The Extreme Darkness Awning, available on both driver’s and passenger’s side. This one’s a definite must-have.
Benefits of awnings
Long drives require breaks to ensure safety behind the wheel. Having a portable roof gives you the chance to set up a resting spot to have a feed, hydrate, and stretch the legs. In Australia, we’re pretty exposed to the extreme elements, whether that be the scorching hot sun or heavy rain. An awning provides protection against what mother nature is shooting down at us and provides much-needed shade. Not only does an awning provide a space for relaxation, but it can be one of your saviours if you find yourself broken down.
Constructed from 900D Ripstop Polyester Canvas, the Bushwakka Extreme Darkness Awning provides protection of UV 50+. The Aussie sun in the outback is not a force you want to mess with, so the more UV protection you have on your side, the better. If the opposite occurs and you find yourself hiding away from the bucketing rain, you can keep yourself dry as the Bushwakka Extreme Darkness Awning is waterproof. Phew!
Built-in LED lights
Don’t sit in darkness, wondering what animal is making a noise off in a far corner of the bush. The Bushwakka Extreme Darkness Awning doesn’t leave anything to the imagination, featuring built-in LED lights with both white and amber switches.
Strong and durable
The Bushwakka Extreme Darkness Awning is strong enough to stand on its own, thanks to a well-developed endo frame. It also features an aluminium square tube framing for extra strength and reliability. Thankfully, you don’t need to worry about your awning flying away in the wind like a flimsy beach umbrella when you invest in the right brand and product. Wouldn’t that be a scene?
There’s ample space provided in your shady abode, as the Bushwakka Extreme Darkness Awning is 2300 long x 180 high x 140 wide. If you’ve got a heap in tow and don’t want to add too much to your weight, you’ll only need to spare 28kg for this bad boy. This allows it to fit right in with the rest of your off-road adventure gear!
Naturally, when it comes to hitting the road after a week of work you want to only pack the essentials. Taking away more than you need is both a pain to carry with you and set up when you’ve only got two days of the weekend to have some fun. An awning is absolutely a must-have and if you’re looking for something reliable and lightweight, you can’t go past the Bushwakka Extreme Darkness Awning.
