The height of your campervan is important when choosing an awning as they are built to fit onto vehicles that sit within a specific height range. To help determine what size awning you need, you’ll need to measure from the ground to the awning rail on your vehicle (or the top of your vehicle if it doesn’t have a rail). Typically, drive-away awnings fall into two categories:
Low 170 - 240cm height range
High 240 - 290cm height range
Usually, you can expect campervans to fall into the low category and bigger vehicles like motorhomes to fall into the higher range, although some odd-shaped campers may vary. Once you’ve determined the height, you can concentrate on the more fun task of picking an awning with the right features and budget to suit your adventures.
