I've been looking for an awning suitable for a panel van conversion for some time now, and I've changed the spec'; I'm looking for an inflatable now.
Has anyone out there found such a seemingly rare beast? Ideally I'd like to see one in the flesh, at a dealers.
If you've got a PVC you'll know the issues.

Thanks, but what I've seen all seem to have attachment issues.
I'm looking to attach to a FiammaF65 awning, which is 3.6 M long, and I'd like to use 3.3M or thereabouts, to ensure that the sliding door is covered.
Attachment ideally across a "tunnel" to ensure that using the sliding door doesn't drag the awning off the side of the van.
Ground to Fiamma rail is approx 2.33M
Ground to top of Door is approx 2.26M
Many Awnings are only 2.10M attachment height.
regards

We Bought this for our X250 PVC if it is of any help https://www.olproshop.com/collections/campervan-awnings/products/cubo-breeze-inflatable-camper-van-awning-sage-green-chalk - not used it much but it fits fine. In case the link does not work search on Olpro Cubo Breeze

Probably the best place to see inflatable awnings is at a show, there are usually at least two stands showing erected awnings.

Thanks Danny; we looked at the Olpro Lunar; but just didn’t see how it could fit and not be pretty draughty; okish in summer but back-end less so
Cheers

I’ve been looking at the Olpro Lunar inflatable which oddly has a tunnel that is 2.7M long, and an awning compartment that is 3.0M long., which prejudices it’s use on a Ducato or similar PVC.
I’ve tried to attach 2 pics.

I just bought an Outdoor revolution Caymen XL for my Motorhome, its that new, it arrived yesterday I put it up today for the first time to weather ready foir a short break next week. I bought this one to replace a poled Sunncamp Motorbuddy

There are a few different versions of the Caymen height wise, shape and position against the van. There are many types of connection methods from throwing straps over, limpets, magnets or c rail etc.
when camping last year I saw a campervan with a large Vango Galli 3 which seemed perfect for a larger family and a van with a sliding door.

There are plenty of drive-away's out there, it just needs a bit of research to find one to suit your needs
