Looking to extend your space, add a privacy room, install a shower or increase the storage space in your campervan? If so, it’s likely you have come across a tailgate tent or awning.

Read more as we delve into different models, features & more importantly, the best fit for your camper.

What is a tailgate tent or awning?

A tailgate tent or awning is a tent like structure that will attach or pull over the tailgate of your vehicle. It is designed to extend the space to your camper and can be used for various reasons.

What can I use a tailgate tent for?

There are several uses including:

  • Privacy Room/Shower
  • Storage Space
  • Tailgate Awning & Sun Canopy
  • Dressing Room
  • Pet Sleeping Area

And that's just a few of the uses!

How do I know it will fit?

One of the most common questions we get is, will this fit my vehicle?

Tailgate tents are built to fit specific models. That is why all our listings should state in the title which vehicle it fits.

Of course, there are more than a few campervan models. So, if it doesn’t say in the title and you are not sure, there is an easy way to solve this. Measure the dimensions of your van and compare with the product dimensions of the tent to see which tent will fit.

We will list the product dimensions in our range overview below.
