All new Outwell drive-away awnings designed for campervan adventures

Addressing the growing demand from the new generation of adventurous campervan owners for low weight, low packed size, performance drive-away awnings, award-winning Scandinavian camping brand, Outwell, has launched its new Active Collection.

Active Collection

During 2020 sales of motorhome and campervans was booming in Europe* with good reason, they offer a flexible way of camping, where campers can set camp, where the adventure takes them and wake up to a new view every morning.

The all-new Active Collection helps campers keep focus on making the most of life outdoors − fast and easy to pitch, each allows a close engagement with nature on campsites or wild camping to get away from the stresses of modern life. Knowledge gained from its technical sister brand, Robens, means Outwell is ideally placed to develop suitable awnings that provide perfect extra living space offering the performance and style expected by free spirits who move often while travelling light.

Their compact packed size and lightweight aluminium alloy poles enable easy storage on the move and extra space quickly attached that can be left free-standing as required.

Outtex 3000 Select polyester offers superb weather protection, enhanced by the alloy poles, storm web tapes and the Outwell Wind Stabiliser System that provides a correctly secured awning stability in up to Force 10 storms. Each enjoys Outwell innovation, including HookTrack System, guy line retainers and double beading (5mm and 7mm) to secure against the vehicle. Large mesh windows with waterproof curtains help circulate air to reduce condensation.

The Collection comprises two superb drive-away awnings, a versatile tarp and a side panel set.


The Lakecrest provides ample living space with a detachable bathtub groundsheet in a surprisingly small footprint. While entry is normally by the front door, wet weather access is via the doors located in the large Link Access Zone that connects the awning to the side of the vehicle, creating a useful area in which to leave wet, muddy gear before entering the campervan or awning living area.

Not only can the Woodcrest be used at the side of a campervan, but the tall roof is designed to cater for an open tailgate or swing door if used to the rear of the vehicle. Like the Lakecrest, it features large side mesh windows with waterproof curtains to enhance ventilation and large roll-away front opening for panorama view. Roll-away front triangular side wall extensions provide access and protection options. The huge living area has a bathtub style groundsheet that can be removed when a wet area is required, such as when storing or working on outdoor gear.

Hillcrest Tarp 

The Hillcrest tarp quickly and easily attaches to a wind-out awning, or direct to the vehicle, using the supplied poles to provide shade, shelter and privacy. It offers the perfect shelter for lunch breaks or stopovers that do not warrant the use of a full awning. The angle from awning or vehicle can be adjusted and the tarp can be partially or completely rolled up when needed.

Fallcrest Side Panel Set 

Attached using heavy duty Outwell zips, this useful addition can be used with a wind out/roll out awning or tarp to provide extra shade, shelter and privacy. The angle from awning or vehicle can be adjusted and the sides partially or completely roll up to suit needs. Rear panel is shorter than front panel to allow for easy use of sliding door and both panels can be guyed out using king poles (not included) to create a sunscreen.
