And there is also accommodation for tents.
And a lovely view.

Would you want just an awning; or, a complete vestibule?

I think your question is a vocabulary one. The pic shows a full size caravan with an awning. You can also get porch awnings which are about half the size and would make a fine awning for Fanny. A canvas sheet which is just a "roof" would be called a flysheet here in the UK.

I thought it might be so in view of the pics and after you said an awning would be useful to keep wet wet weather gear in (rather than under). I'll have to remember "flysheet" and file it next to basha.

Indeed. Basha is a new one on me. But then most things camping and caravanning are new to me ....

Oh here we go, not even one season in, and we want to double the footprint.
Then it will be a bigger fanny so we don't have to mess with that damn awning, especially when we break camp in wet weather or early in the morning.
Then the bigger fanny will lead to inviting people along for orgies for company. Now we need an awning to accommodate the rain gear for all these people. Rinse and repeat. Does the term roughing it ring a chime?

I'll have you know my Fanny is just capacious enough for my and Mr Limey's needs. But we all know that a Fanny is improved with flaps.

An awning is nice to cook under when the weather sucks. Not to mention you don't have to get wet while fumbling with the keys. Too hot to sit in the camper, nice under the awning. The roll out kind is good for a little fanny.

Sometimes, when camping, I use an EZ-Up canopy with the screen walls instead of a tent. Keeps the dropspiders off ya.

With two people, it's quicker than a tent.

So today I learned Americans don't call flysheets flysheets. After 16 years of tent camping here. What on earth do you call it and why has no-one corrected me on it when usually people can't wait to correct my Britishisms (as soon as they stop laughing)?

When tent camping, you have the actual tent like a big bag puffed out by a skeleton of poles, then there's a weather=proof sheet that goes over the top and is held out so it doesn't touch the walls of the inner tent. What is that sheet called in merkin?

Sorry to momentarily hijack your thread Limey. Hope you were busy having fun with your fanny while I did. As you were.....
