The Alu-Cab 270 Shadow Awning is stronger, lighter and easier-to-handle than all other awnings on the market. It is designed by Alu-Cab to be setup and broken down quickly and easily. The awning is approximately 10m_, covers the side and rear of the vehicle, and protects against sun and rain. It is 2.6m long and weighs about 27kg.

To open the 270 Awning, simply unzip the transport sleeve. The awning is then pulled around the vehicle, and tied to a mount in the rear. To give the fabric more tension, which allows rain to drain easily, a short supporting rod is folded up in the middle of the arm. With a little practice, assembly and disassembly take less than a minute.

The Alu-Cab 270 Awning does not normally need contact with the ground. In strong winds, the awning can be attached to the ground by the supporting arm and then pulled tight. Tent pegs are in their own bag which can be found fixed to the transport bag.

In order to stow the awning away, fold down the centre support rod. The holding strap has to be released at the rear of the vehicle, and the awning should be folded up. The cloth is then rolled, lined with the Velcro straps on the frame, and the transport sleeve needs to be zipped up.

Optional extras


By adding the optional side walls, the awning can be extended even more. The side walls with doors, several windows, and mosquito nets are fastened to the awning by Velcro straps. Two extra tent poles in the corners make sure than the tent stays in position.

The side walls are made of water-proof, tear-resistant, acrylic-coated fabric that weigh approximately 190g/m_.

Available to order here.


An optional rain gutter is available to cover the area between the vehicle rear and the awning. This is recommended for vehicles with a side-opening rear door. A channel rail must be attached to the vehicle for installation. The rain cover is then pulled into the channel rails on the awning and vehicle and then allows access to the vehicle protected from rain.


The brackets are held in position, supplied in pairs and are made of Aluminium or stainless steel.

Mounting can be carried out very simply by these brackets. For this purpose, the stable u-shaped Aluminium longitudinal support of the awning has drill-holes at regular intervals. If necessary, separate holes can be drilled into the longitudinal profile without any problems.

Other applications will require bespoke items manufacturing in-house for your vehicle, contact us for a quotation or to arrange fitment.


Please select whether you would like an awning with or without Icarus brackets.
