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.

Click on the button below for more guidance.
