The Outwell San Diego drive away awning will fit onto vans and motorhomes with a height of 170cm - 220cm, and has the Smart Air pitching frame, which means it can be pitched within five to ten minutes. The San Diego awning can be attached to the motorhomes via the Link Access Zone system, which means the San Diego is securely attached to the van. Additionally, the San Diego is a drive-away awning, meaning you can drive your vehicle away, and reconnect upon your return. Additionally, there is a rain safe side door, which gives an added entry into the awning, when the weather goes awry.

|Hydrostatic Head (mm)||
Hydrostatic Head (Tents) – a waterproof rating for technical fabrics measured in mm. The higher the rating the more waterproof the fabric is. A rating of 1500mm is deemed waterproof, but on a tent, look for a rating of 3000 or higher. Measured by the height of water column a fabric weave can take before it begins to “sweat”. “Polycotton” tents will not have a Hydrostatic Head level, as they are not treated for waterproofing.
