Using an Extension or Awning from another make of tent

Using an Awning from a different brand of tent

If you still haven’t found an extension for your tent, you might be able to use one from another tent. Even from another brand of tent.

Side extensions are usually easier to fit than front ones.

How to find an extension that fits

Side extensions are usually easier to fit than front ones
For side extensions…

  1. Find out the height of your tent. You may need to search the internet if you don’t know it.
  2. Use the table below to find an extension of similar height that looks as if it might be a good match.

With side extensions, the height doesn’t have to be exact as you usually have at least 5cm higher or lower to play with.

For front extensions, you want the dimensions to match pretty well, though a fraction larger on the extension may still work. Check the width of the extension with the width of your tent, as well as the height.

‘Universal’ Tent Extensions

Some manufacturers create extensions that can be used across a range of their tents. The design of this type of extension usually works well on tents from other brands too….though you might have to ‘make it work’. (See our guide for more details on fitting a tent extension from another tent).

Here are some universal tent extensions that you might want to look at.

If you do find a good match, let everyone know by adding a comment at the bottom of this page.

  2. We have an Outwell Nevada XLP from 2013. Height 215cm width 370cm Do you have any suggestions for a front extension? I wondered about the Outwell Whitecove 6 front extension as it is the same height, 215 cm but at 390cm it is a full 20cm wider.

    Thanks
