Do you need a supplier and fitment centre for an awning tent for your 4×4? Big Country 4×4 is your answer in South Africa! We sell Ostrich Wing awnings that fit the rooftop of your vehicle and are perfect for camping out in the wilderness. These awning tents can also be enhanced with side panels and extra accessories that include LED lights. Today, we go into detail on our awnings and what you can expect from Big Country 4×4 when it comes to bakkie and off-road vehicle accessories and enhancements.
The Basics of the Ostrich Wing Awning
Big Country 4×4 sells both the standard and “Junior” Ostrich Wing awning tents to ensure that you can get the ideal size for your preferences. These tents can mount on either the left or right side of your vehicle and come in either grey or olive colours to choose from. The listed price excludes the fitting kit and should be kept in mind when buying one for your vehicle. The awning itself is manufactured from 320GSM rip-block canvas that is supported by a collection of aluminium frames to ensure that the additional weight is minimal but still effective to lift the canvas.
The standard Ostrich Wing awning provides 11 m2 of shade and takes less than 30 seconds to fully erect. This tent only requires a single person for setup and can be used without any support poles. The aluminium frames that support the canvas are built from purpose-made extrusions and constructed in a truss design that pivots on nylon bushes for optimal sturdiness and stability when your awning is erected.
Side Panels and Expansions
When fitting an Ostrich Wing awning to your vehicle, you will gain access to additional side panels and support poles to extend the functionality of your awning. The side panels can be bought in a kit or separately, dependent on your specific preferences. The panel kit includes a door panel, window panel, and 2 regular wall panels to create an enclosure for your awning. These panels attach to the primary awning with a Vision zip and can be fitted in any configuration to suit your needs. We also sell an LED light kit to provide additional lighting for your awning.
