I own a caranex h4T,we use this awning on the back and side of our Toyota granvia camper van ,it has been altered using the caranex vk kit which allows it to be fitted into an awning rail which is on the Fiama f45s wind out awning also fit's into an awning rail on the back of the camper which I fitted onto a roof basket .It is a great bit of kit which can be used for table and chairs,sleeping,toilet what ever you need to use it for superb quality.

An excellent idea and manufactured using high quality fabric. Can be pitched in 5 minutes quite easily. I've used this tent with my Land Rover Defender 110 for over 4 years now in Britain, Europe and Morocco and it's never leaked a drop of water, even during Pyranean thunderstorms.
Would benefit from decent windows and a storm porch, and the groundsheet is the same material as tent walls, so needs extra protection. Might not fit if you have raised suspension.

Manufacturer's Description

What's a Caranex?

A unique vehicle tent - a "car annex" to exploit the space and convenience of your personal transport, whether saloon, hatch, estate, van, 4X4 or MPV. It fits easily and quickly and is freestanding too. One model covers virtually all cars from Fiat 500 to Mercedes estate, while a range of heavy duty models fit compact and medium range vans and 4X4's, including all Land Rovers, Range Rovers and Discoveries, MPV's such as the Espace etc., and many more hi-top campers.
Since first introduced in the 1970's, as a functional, multi-purpose vehicle accessory, over 8500 have been sold worldwide. It is on The Design Centre Index, a worthwhile indication of it's workmanship, value and usefulness.

When can it be used?

Any time - it's versatile as plain shelter from the elements, back-up accommodation for a night away, or base for more extensive travelling....and ready for use within minutes, (the record is 4.5!). Easy to erect, even single handed, and firmly attached over the back of the host vehicle, it gives immediate through-access via rear hatch or door, which can still be opened or closed, giving secure and useable extra space under one roof.
A flexible skirt along the rear bumper and a sewn-in groundsheet ensure a dry floor area seating four, or room for twin camp beds with additional sleeping space in many vehicles with fold-down seats. With 6'4" (1.93m) headroom over the working area and ample space for a full size trestle table, it's a decent sized workshop or office. Somewhere to live, sleep or work, it makes life easier "on the road".

Touring at home or abroad

The economical way to stretch the range of journeys further afield as, for example, travelling through Europe where camp sites are well documented, increasingly plentiful, and civilised alternatives to indifferent or scarce accommodation.
