The awning works with five to six arms which, when open, allows coverage of 2 or 3 sides of your vehicle. The arms work in a triangular force which gives the awning more strength. By covering three sides the triangular structure is complete and gives additional structural support. When each arm is opened, another small arm situated on top of the main arm, pops up and provides additional height to the slope of the roof to give better water drainage and prevents large pockets of water collecting on top of your awning.
The BunduAwn standard sizes are 2.45m (96 inches), 2.75m (108 inches) and 2.95m (116 inches) , which is the length of the back plate. The back plate is the part of the awning that is mounted against your vehicle.
You can order a custom sized awn of up to 4 m (157 inches) long.
If you already have a BunduTop installed and want to mount your awning directly to the tent, you will purchase a 2.45m (96 inches) awning.
The BunduAwn features two pivot points and boasts no need for tent poles in its original 360 design. The BunduAwn has a half-meter downward slope for improved water run-off and boasts the largest surface area with the easiest set-up.
The awning weighs about 20kg (44 lbs).
Frequently Asked Questions
It is not heavy but it is an awkward shape and will need 2 people to handle.
The guy on the video is very tall. After a few practice runs you should be able to close it just as fast. The trick to closing the BunduAwn is that the arm should go UNDER the canvas.
You will see when he has lined up the arms from one side he lifts the bulk of the canvas over it, and repeats with the other side. This way the arms of the awning are flush with the back plate.
After that it is as simple as FOLDING up the canvas (rather than rolling, which makes it bulky in the bag) and strapping it down firmly before closing the bag.
The awning is full aluminium construction and a durable Riptech canvas with a reflective surface.
The awning is manufactured to be flexible. If it seems flimsy, tighten the lead ropes until it is taut.
The arms can overcam slightly to ensure that you can tighten it to tautness
It can absolutely be fitted to any vehicle. We do advise that if you have it fitted to either a caravan or off road trailer that you arrange to have their agents do the fitment. This is because the various caravans/trailers have different internal structures.
It will be best to discuss the fitment with them as they are aware where the trailer/caravan has load bearing structural support etc.
The 2.45 and the 2.95 awns cover most vehicle types. You can choose either one to best suit your needs.

If it does it is indiscernible. We have not noticed any increase in fuel consumption over various vehicle types.
The awn bag has been designed to be very snug – this reduces the amount of friction on the awn inside and will ensure that it lasts longer.
Do not force the lifter arms into a flat position as this will cause damage in the long run. By using the correct folding method the lifter arms will still protrude a little at the top.
When you close the bag it will fold them down further (but not flat) without causing damage.
