This New Portable Awning Fits Almost Any Vehicle

A new portable awning is on the market for all your outdoor adventures: the innovative MoonShade was recently launched after a successful Kickstarter campaign. This new portable awning really stands out with its simple yet versatile design that fits on almost any type of vehicle.

The MoonShade Portable Awning

The MoonShade comes with all the hardware needed for set-up. When deployed, the awning covers a 9-foot by 7-foot site and packs down as small as a yoga mat. It weighs just 8 lbs and stows away easily in its included carrying case with a shoulder strap.

Set-up is nearly effortless: the heavy-duty suction cups, magnets, and carabiners anchor to almost any surface (i.e. trees, fences, door frames), while the flexible strut pole can be adjusted on the long or short side depending on your vehicle and the surface you’re anchoring to. This makes it easier to anchor the portable awning to narrower structures and smaller vehicles like cars and camper vans.

According to their Kickstarter, what really sets their portable awning apart is the strength in the design itself.

“We use high-strength aluminum 12mm-diameter poles that securely slot into pockets in each corner of the shade fabric before being secured by six clips along the arc of the poles to create a strong self-supporting structure.”

The shade, constructed of heavy-duty 420D ripstop polyester, is thicker than tent material and provides both sun and light rain protection. The top of the fabric is UV-coated to protect against sun damage, while the bottom of the awning is reflective-coated to block the sun during the day.

While the portable awning is not made to handle extreme weather, it does have an innovative design that naturally keeps water from puddling up. Its unique dome shape allows water to roll off the sides much more easily than the flat awnings available.

Not just a camper awning

The MoonShade awning is not just useful for camping and mobile living, but for any time you want to stay comfortable outdoors. It can also provide shade for outdoor businesses like food trailers, at picnics, ball games, or even outdoor job sites.

While the awning fits most vehicles, MoonShade provides an easy way to check your specific vehicle fit on their website. The awning fits most vans and SUVs, RVs, Jeeps, trucks, and even small cars.

Check out their Kickstarter video below for a closer look.

The MoonShade is currently priced at $315 and available on backorder. More information can be found on their website.
