Best Full Caravan Awnings

2022 Owner Satisfaction Awards update

Best Full Porch AwningsWinner: Isabella 99%
Runner up: Dorema 92%

This category covers two types of large caravan awnings. The first is the traditional awning style, which covers one complete side of the caravan. It is fitted along the whole length of the awning rail from the ground on one side to the other and is sized to fit a specific model of caravan. The second is also known as a large porch or universal caravan awning. It connects along most of the top horizontal part of the awning rail and covers most of the side of the caravan.

Just under a third (30%) of our responses this year were from owners of these larger caravan awnings.

As with Karsten in the Premium Tent category, Isabella has hit an almost-perfect 99% for owner satisfaction this year, winning the category for the second time. The Danish company (which now also owns Folding Camper Award runner up Camp-let) had a fair lead on runner up Dorema from the Netherlands.

Take a look at our Data Sheets for more information on choosing and pitching a full awning.

2020 Full Awning Owner Satisfaction Awards update

Winners: Isabella

Higly commended: Vango

More than half of our responses (55%) were from purchasers of full awnings. The category also includes awnings that cover most of the side of the caravan but only fit on the top of the awning rail. These are often called large porches or universal awnings, the latter name recognising that the awning can be swapped from one model of caravan to another. Traditional full awnings are specific to a particular caravan model.

Widely recognised as the ‘must-have’ brand when it comes to full awnings for caravans, Isabella’s 96% satisfaction score comfortably exceeded runner-up Vango’s 86%.

There’s a difference in style, though. All Isabella awnings reported on would have been of the traditional poled type (it only introduced its first inflatable awning at the end of 2019), whereas Vango’s main successes have been inflatable models.
