Caravan Annex Extension Ideas

At Aussie Traveller, we know all about how camping with a caravan is about freedom, exploring the great outdoors, and creating lasting memories with loved ones. But sometimes, you might crave a little extra space to relax and unwind truly. That's where caravan annexes come in.

Think of an annexe as an extension of your living area. It attaches seamlessly to your caravan awning, transforming it into a sheltered and spacious room. This can open up a world of possibilities - At Aussie Traveller, we offer a wide range of ideas for caravan annexes to suit different budgets, caravan sizes, and camping styles. Whether you're looking for a simple wall extension or a fully enclosed room, we have the perfect solution to elevate your next caravan adventure.

What Are the Types of Caravan Annexes?

Caravan annexes come in various shapes and sizes, each offering different features and benefits to suit the needs and preferences of different types of travellers.

Full Caravan Annexes

These comprehensive shelters encompass your entire awning area, providing uncompromising protection from the elements. Windows and doors bathe the interior in natural light and allow easy access, while mesh panels ensure superior ventilation and keep pesky insects at bay. With a full annexe extension, you'll be able to transform your campsite into a fully equipped sanctuary.

End Wall Annexe

These wall kits simply attach to your awning legs, providing customisable side walls for both shelter and privacy. Available in various lengths and extensions to match your awning, they can be used alone for basic protection or combined with other panels for a more comprehensive setup.

Sun Screens or Roll-out Annexes

Sun screens or roll-out annexes are versatile outdoor accessories designed to provide shade and shelter from the sun's glare and light rain, offering quick and easy setup alongside your caravan or camper. With their convenient roll-out design, they offer flexible outdoor living spaces ideal for relaxing, dining, or simply enjoying the great outdoors in comfort.

Create Space Within Your Caravan

When it comes to caravan annex extensions, space is precious. As an idea, consider utilising lightweight materials and waterproof foldable annex walls to create versatile configurations that suit your needs. Modular furniture can also be a game-changer, offering multi-functional use and allowing you to make the most of every square inch.

Outdoor Living Space

Take advantage of your caravan's natural beauty by creating an outdoor living space. Set up an innovative design with an awning or canopy for shade and weather protection, and form a cosy dining room or lounge area for outdoor relaxation. Incorporating waterproof materials ensures durability against the elements.

Create Family Zones

Utilise added shade screens or end walls to craft the ideal annex for your entire family to enjoy together. Whether it's unwinding after a big day of adventure or just after some special bonding, expanding space with an end wall does the job. Incorporating an anti-flap kit ensures stability in windy conditions, while a huge range of designs allows for customisation to fit your family's needs.

Feel Safe and Secure

Safety should always be a top priority when it comes to caravan annex extensions. Ensure peace of mind by installing security systems, including smoke detectors and fire extinguishers, and prioritising structural stability and durability in your annex design. As an idea, choose innovative designs that prioritise safety without compromising on comfort or convenience.

Caravan Annexe: What's an Anti-Flap Kit?

An anti-flap kit is a device designed to stabilise and secure the fabric walls of awnings or annexes attached to caravans, RVs, or camper trailers. Here's why they're important:

  • The purpose of an Anti-Flap Kit is to prevent the fabric from flapping or billowing excessively in windy conditions.
  • This helps to reduce noise, prevent damage to the fabric, and maintain a more stable and comfortable environment inside the awning or annex.

Anti-flap kits are particularly useful during outdoor activities such as camping, where wind gusts can be common.
