Poled awnings can be just as easy to put up as Air Awnings. They still need to be threaded through the awning rail and pegged out. The packing away again can take a bit more time, but then again the subsequent separate bags of poles and canvas are often easier to handle, and stow, than an all-in-one package.
Poled awnings can cost less than Air awnings. But, there are other plus points to be aware of, such as:
- On uneven ground, the legs can be adjusted to accommodate
- Poles are considered stronger
- Traditional awnings can weigh considerably less than inflatable equivalents.
There is a choice of poles which can come in Steel, Aluminium and Carbon Fibre, these all have upsides and downsides but it pretty much comes down to cost and weight.
