@wyvern I've seen that one that you have many times. It's just not for sale anymore unfortunately. I'd love to get one but... No dice.


There are other porch awnings that are available that do a similar job... and for a reasonable price.

Yup, but none that pops up like the Khyam that you have.
It was probably just too good so they had to kill it off Sad

At the moment the one I'm most interested in is the Howling Moon Swing Awn:

It's a 270 degree awning... But I'm just not sure how usable the space is....

Have a 2.5m arb awning on the side of the 90 and a 1.5m on the back to cover the cooker, storage, etc. We have the awning room for the bigger awning which is simple and quick to attach and has transformed our set up for inclement weather,don't use it much but it is a good size and doesn't take up much space to carry in the truck.
We purchased the awnings over a couple of years and now wounder how we managed without them.

It does stick out over the bonnet a little but you don't notice it, also mounted a little higher to give clearance for the room under the awning.

Wales 2006 Defender 110 Td5 SW Alpine White

+1 for a tarp, I have a tarp from DD hammocks, It can be erected quickly, on either side to suit each situation or over the back of the vehicle if needed. It cost 40 plus another 20 for some adjustable poles. Te Dd hammocks have numerous eyelets which helps to make it very user friendly. Personally I think the whole awning industry is a bit of a rip off, some of them have a redicilous price when you actually sit back and think of what they're made of, but hey, that's just my opinion. 2006 TD5110 station wagon

Aaaah, that's a very flattering angle in that photo. You can't see the overhang at all!
What does it look like square from the side?!

I push it out level with the back wheel so there is a small overhang at the rear , this leaves a smaller overhang at the front. The overhang at the front would be about 200 mm from the bulkhead you can't notice it from the drivers seat , your certainly not jousting as you go down the road !!!!
Sorry have not got a full on side shot .

Watching this thread with interest, as I'm in the process of looking for an awning for my 90 as well. Got two Mantec Roof bars to mount it to, but trying to decide whether side or rear cover is more useful (or both...)

Scotland 2007 Defender 110 Puma 2.4 XS CSW Epsom Green

Hi dantastic, I had the same dilemma a year or two ago...... its a mine field and everyone has their own opinion. A total nightmare.

In my mind it all depends on what and where you are going to use it. Always on grass at camp sites..then one with legs and guy ropes might be fine. Offroad on uneven ground for a quick cup of tea, then something that just swings out..... how large an area do you need??? There are more questions than answers.... I agree with some other comments here...they are expensive, so you kind of want to get it right.....

I have a 110 which I know does not help you...but in the end I went for a hannibal rear 1.4m awning. A couple of reasons.
1. Very quick to take in and out
2. No poles or guy ropes, good for uneven ground thats rocky
3. Nene overland had a sale on and it was a lot cheaper.
4. Protects the back area while making a cup of tea or packing the back.

I hummed and hayed about a foxwing 270 degree for agees, then looked at the hannibal 270 degree, but after speaking to the guy form Hannibal he said in windy conditions even although the hannibal does not have legs you would be better to tie it down as there is alot of fabric in the awning.

I also bought the sides for the awning which is handy in wet and windy conditions, but its not big enough for two of you to sit under.....

I may in the future buy the 2.4m hannibal side awning...if I got one cheap enough....

sorry I cant be better help..maybe just buy the DD hammock tarp and a couple of poles and see how you get on. The Oztent poles are good as they twist and lock for different heights....

chers

Richard

No.It's the full size version.
I sticks out around 25 to 30cm at the front,but that hasn't been a problem.
