Extra space for your Bongo

Awnings are great for creating an on-site base while camping for more than one night or simply adding a bit more space on a short stay whether on a campsite or by the beach.

Awnings create extra living or stand alone storage space, so you can drive your Bongo off and not lose your pitch. Some awnings have an optional inner tents in case guests arrive. There are also tailgate awnings which serve as windbreaks or an extension.

Buying Bongo awnings

Ebay is a good start for buying your Bongo awning since various traders are advertising there and you can compare prices easily. Alternatively try your local motorhome or caravan shop - they may stock them or be able to order them in.
