Guide to Awning Privacy Screens

Article by Steve Smith - Caravans Plus

Caravan awnings are great, but are you getting the most use out of yours?

Create an outdoor room. There is a range of easy to attach privacy screens and floor mats to suit most sizes and brands of awnings. It is simple to add privacy and shade to your caravan awning.

The groove built into the roll-out awnings and the box style (Fiamma) awnings are a different diameter and screens were originally made to suit one style of the other. Camec has a dual purpose screen designed to fit both styles, however some customers have reported these dislodge from the rollout awnings, so we do not list them under this category. Coast and CGear make individual screens that suit one style or the other.


1) Screens for Dometic and Carefree roll-out awnings

For the long wall (side screens)

To suit awnings from 10 to 19 ft long. They have a rope sewn into the edge which slides into a track on your awning. They have eyelets on the bottom edge which get pegged to the ground. The walls are made of a shade cloth with 90-95% shade depending on the brand.

For the end walls (front & rear screens)

There are different models for Caravans and for Pop Tops. The walls attach to your awnings rafter with velcro straps. They have eyelets on the bottom edge which get pegged to the ground. The walls are made of a shade cloth with 90% shade.


Making an annex from your awning

By adding waterproof walls all the way around your awning you can make a fully enclosed annex. These are pre-made to fit the standard length roll-out awnings and can suit a range of roof heights. They include windows with flyscreens and a door.


2) Screens for Fiamma F45 Awnings
