Tent Canopies, Porches, and Extensions – Search for one that fits your tent

Are you looking to make your tent bigger?

We have three steps to help you find an awning, canopy, or extension for your tent.

If you are taking your family away for a number of nights, making your tent a bit bigger can certainly make life a little easier, even if it is just somewhere to keep muddy boots.

On this page, we try to help you find an extension for your tent, even if the manufacturer doesn’t make one.

There are three steps to follow.

STEP 1 - CHECK THE ARCHIVE FOR YOUR TENT

Browse the list of Extensions and Awnings for different Brands of Tents

Over the years we have been building an archive of older tent models and possible matching extensions. To find an extension for your tent, click on the tent brand below to search the archive.

If you can’t find your tent, then go to Step 2.

Coleman Tent Extensions, Easy Camp Tent Extensions, Gelert Tent Extensions, Hi Gear Tent Extensions, Kampa Tent Extensions, Lichfield Tent Extensions, Outwell Tent Extensions, Regatta Tent Exensions, Robens Tent Exensions, Skandika Tent Extensions, Sprayway Tent Extensions, Urban Escape Tent Extensions, Vango Tent Extensions, Zempire Tent Extensions

STEP 2 - SEARCH FOR A MATCH USING YOUR TENT'S HEIGHT AND WIDTH

Locate your tent’s height and width and see some possible options.

Put in your tent’s height, and if you are after a front extension, your tent’s width too, into our Tent Extension Search.

Step 2 - Tent Extension Search >>

Still no match? Go to Step 3.

STEP 3 - LEARN HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN SHELTER

All is not lost if you still can’t find a tent extension. We have some tips on making an extended shelter for your tent.

You might still be able to create a shelter from the elements and create a bit more space. See our guide to creating a shelter with a camping tarp kit.

  1. Hi Gav, I’ve just bought an Outwell Oakland L but can’t seem to find a front extension to go with it. Do you know if these are available or if there’s a compatible one? Many thanks Suzanne

  4. Hi I’ve just bought the Outwell 7p alabama tent. And after it arrived last week I was thinking I might purchase a side awning for it but then to find its been discontinued. (Gutted) any ideas on weather i can get any other side awning to fit this tent please?

    • Hi Liz,

      Well, the good news is that Outwell still make the Alabama 7P http://www.outwell.com/en/Products/tents/premium-tent-collection/alabama-7p
      However, were you referring to a specific year? Do you know how your tent differs to the 2017 Alabama 7P?

      Cheers,
      Gav

      • Hi Gav Its the 2016 alabama tent and I haven’t a clue on how it differs to the 2017 tent.

        9:51 pm on January 16, 2017
        • Well, the good news is that there’s not much difference from 2016.
          Outwell have made two of the bedrooms slightly longer, which has meant they needed to make the tent a fraction longer too. But height, width, and colour are exactly the same as you have.

          The bad news is that there’s no official awning or extension for the Alabama 7P.
          And there’s more bad news. A side-awning from another brand will not be great fit on the Alabama, and you’ll not get a great colour match.
          The closest I found was this inflatable porch at Go Outdoors. http://www.gooutdoors.co.uk/hi-gear-nimbus-8-porch-p286189
          However, I’m not sure it will fit that well and might look a little weird.

          If you are after a bit of extra outdoor living space, my recommendation is to get a tarp kit. The Easy Camp tarp kit that we use is a grey colour, and so it will probably look coordinated with your tent.
          Another option is to join the Outwell Camping Club on Facebook and ask if any other 2016 Alabama owner has found a good side awning alternative https://www.facebook.com/groups/outwellcampingclub/

          Hope that helps.

          • Ok Gav thanks for your help. Allweathers wear I ordered the tent from have all so gotten back to me to say I could try the Outwell universal AC side awning for our tent so I’ll try and have a look into that.

          • Yes, that might work… but different colour of course 😉

  5. Hello, I’m looking for a side porch for my Quechua 6.3xl air tent. Preferably one with a door which we can use to cook/eat in when raining, also not too bad a colour match. Thanks.

  7. Hi,
    I’m really struggling to find a side extension for my Outwell Glendale 5 2013 model.
    Dimensions of the extension are 225Hx280W. Tent height is 220.
    I’m not really bothered if it’s a different brand or even colour! Do you know if a front extension could be used as a side extension? I’m just wondering if the top flap attachment might be longer on side extensions.

  8. Hi,

    We have the Hi Gear Atakama 5 tent really struggling as some of the new Hi Gear tent extensions appear they would fit but the tent is blue and Hi Gear now only appear to do their tents in green ?
    Any ideas I have been looking at the Vango Icarus 500 extension it’s a bit wider but the height is a match as is the colour.

    Thanks

    • Hi Laura-Jenny,
      Yes, it does look like a reasonable match. The additional width could catch the wind, but since this is an open ended canopy, that might not be too much of an issue.
      Cheers,
      Gav

  9. Hi I have a vango kasari 800 with the canopy, do you know if the canopy would fit on the side entrance as well as the front? the side entrance is 20cm narrower and slightly shorter so I’m guessing it could just a little baggy? want to check before I pack it as our tent pitch isn’t big enough for it to go on the front
