More and more people are choosing to become seasonal campers or permanent pitchers. Some are only seasonal campers for a few months, usually in the off-peak season, while others have a pitch on the same campsite for years.
Leaving your caravan standing with the awning attached for a long time can be tough on your awning and equipment. The caravan itself will probably cope with most weather conditions. However, your awning and camping equipment needs to be designed to withstand all kinds of weather and frequent use. This demands quality and functionality.
There are different forms of permanent pitching, so what should you actually choose when it comes buying an awning and equipment? Here, our product specialists give their top tips for choosing an awning and equipment for permanent pitchers.
Well suited for the “light” permanent pitcher, active in the spring or autumn season and possibly travelling around a bit during the summer holidays. The Commodore gives you the greatest possible flexibility, as it can be purchased with the ultra-light CarbonX poles and the more stable steel and mega-steel poles.
It’s also flexible when it comes to colours. You can choose between the Dawn or the North model.
Perfectly suited for those who stay on the same pitch throughout the season and need a particularly stable awning. With a depth of 3.5 metres you get even more space, and the pentagon shape makes the awning extra stable and resistant to the elements.
Penta is usually pitched for extended periods, so it is only available with the strong steel poles or the extra-strong mega-steel poles.

For the glamping-minded permanent pitcher who wants even more space and extra options. There’s a reason why we call Prisma the ultimate permanent pitcher tent. Prisma gives you a full four metres of depth. The front of the Prisma can be moved back, and you can make a covered patio by the frame and front panel, where you can sit and enjoy life on the campsite from early morning until late evening. You can also make an enclosed entrance area by purchasing a front set.
Prisma offers a range of optional extras to suit your needs. If you need extra shade or shelter, you can buy an Eclipse or a Cosy Corner. You can also buy optional extras such as a door canopy or annex.
Do you need shelter?
If you choose a Flex windscreen, you can expand it as much as you want by purchasing additional sections. So you can create your own little oasis where you don’t have to bother about which way the wind is blowing. The Flex windscreen comes with three panels as standard.
