Best Camping Tips from the Pros Pitch a tent, fire, pack a cooler, tie a two half-hitches: these are the camping basics. Even if you didn’t study them in the Boy Scout handbook, online guides make them easy to learn. But what about the lesser-known, less intuitive ways to make camping more pleasant, comfortable or efficient? But the best camping hacks come from people whose hearts and minds are constantly on the next meadow and copse, the trailhead, mountaintop or campsite.

GPX-BR Home « Keeping Pace Awnings There are a number of options available for awnings for small campers in the US. I've broken them into a few classes of awning below. Retractable awnings These awnings roll back into a protective case, using either a hand crank or an electric motor. They can be rolled out to any percentage of open, meaning you can pull out just a small bit if space is limited. Fiamma F45i ($700 + brackets + freight): this is the premium campervan awning. Fiamma F65: larger than the F45, otherwise similar. Dometic Horizon (aka A&E Horizon) (~$800 + freight): Now known as Dometic, used to be A&E. Rhino Rack Foxwing Awning ($600): Very cool - comes out and wraps around 270 degrees, to shade the side and the back of your vehicle. 100% UV protection, and available for either the left or right side of the vehicle. Bag awnings Fiamma F35 Pro: another nice awning from Fiamma. Hannibal: Hannibal is based in South Africa, with no dealers elsewhere that I know of.
