ARB Awning Customer Reviews
23 Customer Reviews
Since the beginning, there've always been misguided sun worshipers out catching rays, as well as sun stroke. But as time went on, it was the intelligent, shade seekers who rose to the top of the evolutionary heap. Now, you can cement your own position at the top of the food chain with the ARB Awning.
Mounting to your vehicle's roof rack, the ARB car shade is always there when you need to shun the sun. It deploys in less than a minute, and the telescoping legs let you dial in just the right height. Plus, the included pegs and guy ropes make sure things stay shady, even in windy conditions.
Crafted from durable PVC-lined polyester fabric, this UV-protected roof rack awning keeps the elements at bay. What's more, when you're done soaking up the shade, it rolls up and stows safely away in a heavy-duty bag. That way it's fresh and ready to block the sun at a moment's notice. To top it off, ARB backs it with a 2-year warranty.

I received the awning in a resonable amount of time via ground shipping however the bottom of the tube was damaged. As a result, the ground stakes and guy strings were missing. All other contents were in good shape. I contacted ARB and they sent the missing items no charge within a few days. I had to fabricate L brackets and use U bolts to install the awning on my tube racks and onec installed, the device deployed as advertised and rides well on my truck. Nice product for beach/camping shade.

This awning is amazing! It fits perfect on my Yakima rack using a couple of L brackets and u clamps. This awning will keep you dry in the rainiest of weather and shaded in the sunniest of weather, protecting you and your, in my case, camp kitchen dry and protected! A definite buy for camping!

We have used our awning about 5 times since we received it 2 weeks ago and we love it. Thoughtful, practical design and quality construction. We used it on a camping trip in Olympic National Park and can't wait to use it again. It creates an instant space that is comfortable and cozy.

I ordered the mid sized awning. Product seems pretty well built. Am putting it to its first use this weekend, so time will tell. Had a lot of problems with Auto Anything getting a replacement sent out when the first one I received was damaged in shipping. Spoke with ARB during the process, and they were excellent to work with.

I installed this on my 1992 20 Foot Ford Conversion Camper Van. Used the channels on the metal rail to hold bolt heads and mount directly to side of fiberglass van top. Very secure, easy to access, setup and store. Much more affordable than most camper awning options. Seems very durable.

Most of us already understand that ARB makes high quality products - which I agree with. This product eliminates the problems associated with trying to attach the tarp to the rack, stretching it out (but not too tight), fiding something to tie the ropes onto, making sure the water runs off, etc. This solution is much easier. The only caution I would offer to potential buyers is that you may have to use a bit of creativity to mount this assembly onto your rack. I used Yakima X towers.

Great awning for the price. I use it on a Vanagon Westfalia and their are a few awning products that will fit my van but for a lot more money. I will definitely use ARB products again and AutoAnything will be the first place I look. I researched a lot of websites for the best price and AutoAnything couldn't be beat. Awning was shipped really fast and arrived earlier than expected. It was a great buying experience.
