    Best free standing awning

    Yo, looking to upgrade the $100 Kings 2.5x2.5 awning.

    After something free standing (with a pole or ropes for wind) and like a 270 to cover the back.

    Used for the beach and camping. Will prob get a couple of walls for extra shade as they're higher than the straight out ones and can't really be tilted down for early/late sun angle. And for keeping weather out when camping turns to shit. Been soaked in a bivvy before under the Kings with sideways rain. These 270s don't seem to offer as much shade as you'd expect.

    Looking at:

    - 30 second awning (~$1150)
    - Ostrich wing (~$1800)
    - Alu Cab shadow awning (~$2100!)

    The 30 second seems to have less quality canvas and not quite as strong.

    Anyone used any of these?

    This is on my wish list. In one of his videos there's a storm that just about blows his fucking car over and the awning is none the worse for wear. Not cheap, on par with the Alu Cab you've listed.

      Sent them an email to see if they have walls. They mention they're coming soon. Looks like a tough bit of gear.

          Through doing much research I agree with the above.

              I did have a look at the Bushwakka. Possible 2k drop on an awning suspended due to needing a road motorcycle asap.
