Notify me when back in stock
With over two years in development, the soon to be released Eclipse 270° Awning is a class leading design.
Designed as a freestanding unit to ease set up and pack down, the Eclipse 270° is easily set up by one person. Hinged from both ends, the Eclipse 270° spans along the full length of the vehicle as well as the rear, offering additional undercover area compared to other general market offerings (approx. 11.5 M2)
With optional walls erected, up to 20.5 M2 of sheltered area can be achieved. Each optional wall can be set up as a wind and weather break or as an upright awning extension, allowing the Eclipse 270° to extend further up to 4.2 meters in total, featuring 2x pivoting alloy telescopic poles which are neatly stowed along the rafter when packing away.
Made from Darche’s proven and hard wearing proofed poly cotton ripstop canvas, a strong light weight box tube alloy rafter system, and pivoting from heavy duty steel and alloy swivel hinge system, the Eclipse 270° will quickly become a favourite must have for all serious tourers and campers alike.
