We bought the Outwell Daytona recently. Used it on two trips and find it pretty decent. Plenty room sown in groundsheet and access between van and main awning for getting wet boots off .

Here's ours its a Kampa Midi Air, got it a couple of months ago and well pleased with it deceptively large it has a privacy partition with external door ( side door to first Air strut appx 1 mtr) pity i took the picture from this side because the windows and 1 of the doors are the other side. The opposite end to the van is a full width door, all windows have curtains, detachable ground sheet ( push clips really easy to fit etc ) i can have this unit blown up and in situ on the van in 10 minutes then peg out all done and dusted in 20 minutes easy. Unfortunately at the time of this picture i did not have an awning rail attached so i had to attach it to the van via bungee cords to the roof rails. I now have fitted awning rails to the van and use a Kader strip and figure of 8 connector and it now fits perfect with no sagging etc fits like a glove ( i will post some fresh pictures next time we go away ). We looked round at loads of different awnings and this one was by far the best of the bunch for us, i would highly recommend this unit go to the Kampa web site and see the video. I think they do the same awning for high roof vehicles too. It also has a 6000 Fabric waterproof rating

you also get a steel tube which you tie to van with the guide ropes which also does the same but not as good as the rails that came with the awning

No issues at all as it is the same size as a caravan with awning also remember a caravan with awning also has a car with it. i'm appx 5 mtr wide. We went to the Lakes 2 weeks ago and had quite a few other campervan owners coming to have a chat about the awning and all but 1 were transporter owners lol.

Love the matching van/bike combo. Being a biker myself I can appreciate it more than most :)

Got all of the External bling from Vanstyle - Look up my post 'Almost Done' it will give you all the suppliers i used.

I did the bike way before i bought the Van the bike is a lighter shade of Grey with Kawasaki Candy Lime Green decals i made up ( which gave me the idea to do the van ) a nightmare colour to paint but the end result is worth it.
