Van Awning One

Van Awning One is us unpacking all we've learnt at STITCHES + STEEL selling thousands of awnings over a half-decade, applying that learning into one, very simple, innovative product is what the VA1 is all about. 

Size; Van awning one is just the right size. You can fit four people under it with a table and due to its shape and innovative features, it's very easy to attach and rig in seconds. 

Tech; It may look like a square of fabric but that's not the case. Pull a simple square of fabric off the side of a van will result in baggy, leaky, undignified sight. Dynamic leech shape allows the awning to be pulled tight and 'dipped' correctly into the wind allowing it to work with the weather, VA1 benefits from sail-making tec, with clew structure and 'leech' shaping which what all awnings should really have to 'rigged' correctly.  

The material is a lightweight ripstop with a small amount of stretch built-in, this allows VA1 to be pulled tight without the associated sagging. We've taped and seam sealed it which equals a highly water resistant, adaptable canvas. The Bolt Rope (or Kador strip) is deliberately oversized and derives from the marine sector. It's 7mm size and fits all S+S awning rails along with most others.  

Smart; Guy lines on all four corners allow it to be lashed in an infinite variety meaning it works on any vehicle, with or without an awning rail 

Packaging; Everything in its place. Each corner features hook and loop pockets designed to stash guy lines to avoid knots. We've added sailing inspired cleats to avoid unnecessary tying. The rip stop carry bag is just the right size when folded and rolled around the poles. Not too big, not too small. Same story for the pegs and their own, individual carry bag.

Adaptable; The poles are designed to pack deliberately small. A stealthy, Anodised, Aircraft-grade Aluminium, 4 tiered collapsible unit allowing sub 1m packing dimensions while retaining the ability to extend as high as 3m. Ideal for T5/6's all the way up to Crafters + Sprinters. 

Dual needs; Our customers often buy X2 VA1's so they can be used as a pair, One for the side and one for the rear doors.  Eyelets and elasticised hooks allow 'barndoor' awning mode. The dimensions, eyelets, pegs and guy lines are deliberately placed to allow Van Awning One the ability to work as both a side awning and as a barn door awning. 

Smart thinking; Van awning one is a real world solution of 99% of people's needs when it comes to an Awning. Its 'sub minute, simple rigging, clear and clean design and dual needs ability tick the box for almost every eventuality.

Van Awning one was designed to work in harmony with the SWB + LWB VW Transporter platform first and foremost, it works with both SWB + LWB along with vans with Spoilers too. 

We spent a lot of time making it as universal as possible too. It'll be entirely compatible with all other varients of van. Vivaro, Movano, Transit etc. We have also fitted eyelets on each corner of the canvass which allows the shorter side of Van awning one to work well with the VW Caddy, Maxi and Transit connect. 


If you're not lashing / tying it to your vehicle, our Awning rails are a great way to make using Van awning one a pleasure.
