If you've struggled in the past to set up awnings by yourself in the wind, have a look at the videos of the Batwing Awning set up below, and behold the convenience of integrated legs. All the components pack into the heavy duty rack-mountable PVC bag, so you don't have to worry about forgetting to bring the legs or stakes.
PLEASE NOTE: This version of the Batwing Awning is the Compact size, mounted on the left side of the vehicle (the driver's side). For the passenger side mounting version, please view the Right Side Mount Batwing Compact Awning. For a larger Batwing Awning, please view the Left Side Mount Batwing Awning.
