Motorhome accessory review: Outwell Nordic Shore Ripple Motor Awning
We all know what a motorhome awning is for, don’t we? Yes, it’s an extension of your own private pitch empire or it’s a very expensive on-site cupboard for all your junk.
Whatever the reasons for buying such a piece of kit, you want to make sure you get the right one for your needs. This particular awning essentially fixes to an awning rail (you’ll have to contact your dealer to arrange this) or a fixed cassette awning (a standard feature or common option fitted on many new motorhomes).
It’s inflatable (pump is included) and has windows on all three sides. Usefully the entire front panel can be removed or partially unzipped.
The inflatable system includes height adjustment for the legs (for uneven ground), one location to pump air into all tubes and adaptable roof tubes to reduce gaps between the awning and the motorhome.
The benefits of one of these above a traditional safari room are that it will be much more stable in inclement conditions.
Two different connection heights are catered for: 2.45m-2.65m (M) and 2.65m-2.85m (L), with prices starting from £1,224.99 for the 380SA M up to £1,374.99 for the 440SA L. Check out the Outwell website for exact sizes and available options.
