Camping gear maker, Darche, revealed yesterday a new '270° addition to their Eclipse range of vehicle awnings.
While they haven't said much about the Eclipse 270 yet, the short video below gives us a pretty good idea of what to expect and so far it looks very interesting.
Unlike other similar products which fold out from a single axis at the rear, the Eclipse 270 looks to fold out from both ends, resulting in the folded awning being shorter when it is back in it's storage bag.
Having already travelled around the country ourselves carrying too much gear, we're currently in the process of upgrading our 80 Series Landcruiser (#Project80) so that it can be self sufficient without needing to tow a trailer.
This means living out of the vehicle and a 270° awning could definitely be part of the plan, especially if it's quick to setup and pack up and not too heavy.
