    There is also an alternative called the Sunncamp esteemed air awning which is 2.5m depth out from your van so will fit on any standard size pitch

    Having used a Bradcote Portico awning with internal metal frame for a number of years. And for two years a light weight awning with thread-through fibre-glass poles. As a result I have an aversion to awnings which require lots of guys all the way round. The Sunncamp Iconair awning which is first in your list appears to stand up without guys, is this true or have they been photoshopped out of the picture?
    I have done some research and Bradcote have a freestanding porch (2.5 x 3.2) air awning but none of the comparative review sites seem to rate it.

      Hi Kevin, like most inflatable designs, the Icon can hold its own in most weather conditions without resorting to guylines or storm straps. Generally, the use of air tubes and pegging out at ground level will suffice. However, and typically, the Icon does come with pre-attached guylines as well as clip-on storm straps so, it’s up to you whether you want to use them or not.
