DD Hammocks first Campervan-specific Tarp
Open up a whole new world of adventure with the DD Campervan tarp - a lightweight awning system designed to be used with your camper on those far-flung trips across counties, countries and continents.
Fits 6mm & 8mm beading channels
The DD Campervan Tarp has both 6mm & 8mm beading - whilst the tarp has been designed and tested round a VW California T6.1, it will fit any van / awning with a 6mm/8mm beading channel.
The tarp can be used as an overhead awning, threaded directly through the awning rail on the left-hand side of the van (8mm on the VW), or as a side-wall in conjuction with the the built-in awning (6mm). Or for shelter on both sides, why not both!
Simple to set up
Overhead: Once attached to the van, the outward edge of the tarp requires 2 x poles for support (if the tarp is used overhead), guyed out to provide stability. An optional third pole can be placed in the centre of the tarp, to give more headroom and aid in water run-off on wet days*. The whole process takes only a few minutes, leaving you free to take in the views!
Side-wall: If used as a side-wall, simply thread the tarp into the channel on the edge of the awning, peg out the bottom, and attach the sides to the awning frame to secure it in place.
The DD Campervan Tarp is made from DD Hammocks UV50+ material.
As well as providing protection from bad weather thanks to its' 3000mm-rated waterproofing, it also blocks over 98% of harmful UV rays. An ideal solution for travelling in hot climates or lounging outside on long & bright sunny days.
Light & Compact
Weighing just over 1Kg and packing down far smaller than other dedicated awnings, you can easily fit this into your camper without taking up space for even more adventure gear!
Note - this tarp has been designed and tested around a VW California T6.1 - but any van / awning set-up with 6mm or 8mm beading rails will be supported.
Buckles - All buckles on this tarp are female: We plan to release products in the future that will be compatible with these buckles - though for now these can be used to aid in tying off the tarp to awning frames / poles
Poles for Set-up: This product requires additional poles for supporting the outward corners & roof. We would recommend our DD Tarp Pole - 2.2m or DD Tarp Pole - XL Size
*If only using 2 poles (1 on each corner) we would recommend that one pole is raised or lowered more than the other, to avoid a flat roof which could trap water.
