I did some shopping on a Awning for my lexus LX-450, and I narrow it to ARB's awning and Camping Lab, 349.00 vs 200.00.
Both seem to be very similar the main difference for me was the size!
Camping Lab dimmentions are as follows:
Campinglab expedition awnings are made of 300D polyester with PVC coating and aluminum structure. All joints are high resistance plastic and all bolts are galvanized.
Our expedition awnings cover an area of 85"X79" and can be set as high as 83" on the poles side.
Campinglab awnings come with a very sturdy aluminum extrusion on the back which makes it very easy to attach the awning to any roof rack or even load bar ends.
Our awnings weight 22 pounds and fold into a 7"X4"X83" protective cover which closes with a heavy zipper keeping the awning clean and dust free regardless of conditions.
Campinglab expedition awnings have 2 adjustable guylines and 4 heavy duty ¼" galvanized steel stakes which hold everything in place even under moderate winds.
ARB Touring Awning:
Comes in a neat PVC bag
Quick to erect and put down
30 seconds to deploy
Unique mounting extrusion allows for easy installation
Mounts directly to the side of most roof racks or roof bars
Made from cotton / poly ripstop - waterproof &
100% UV protection
Rope track design facilitates attachment of optional mosquito net
Bag made from heavy duty reinforced PVC
Comes with pegs & guide ropes for securing legs, mounting nuts and bolts, wrench and comprehensive instructions
The measurements on my Lexus from the front of the rain gutter to the rear is 85" which the Camping Labs awning seems to blend in much better!
I will be placing an order this coming week and will test on the El golfo de Santa Clara weekend next month!
