VW T6 Awning Rail Options

What is a VW T6 Awning Rail?

An awning rail is basically a canopy rolled up inside a cassette. It is permanently mounted on the side or roof of your van, campervan or kombi. There are various ways to wind them down and that depends on which VW T6 Awning Rail you have bought. They can either be wound down by rolling them out manually by hand or a 12v motor. Yes, the VW T6 Awning Rail has support legs. You are not going to have to attach it to a tree or anything! The extended support legs are actually within the cassette and they pull out when the canopy is fully extended. Wildworx stocks Vamoose and Fiamma awning rails. Vamoose awning rails tend to be the most popular.


The benefits of a VW T6 Awning Rail are endless to be honest. It all depends how you look at it. Once the canopy is wound out, you can create a great shade for yourself and family and friends when camping, so you don’t have to sit under the direct sun. On the other hand, we don’t recommend using the canopies when it’s raining and very windy, this is due to damp forming when it’s not dry properly when rolled back in. This VW T6 Awning Rail will give you great privacy at a campsite too, you know when you just get a bit too nosey neighbours next to you, well with this they won’t be able to see much as it gives you more privacy compared to not having one.
