The Outwell Sailshade M is designed to extend the awning's living space into the great outdoors, connecting onto the front of the awning using buckles, and creating great height using the telescopic poles and reflective webbing. The Sailshade also has beading on the edge, allowing it to be directly connected to the motorhome, van or caravan. The poles can also be adjusted to compensate for uneven ground conditions.

Polycotton - a blend of polyester and cotton, primarily cotton (usually around 65% cotton / 35% polyester split). Polycotton is a more natural fabric for camping, as it is breathable, far more durable material, reducing the effects of condensation. Offers greater versatility in hot and cold climates.
