Outdoor Revolution Movelite T4E PC Driveaway Awning
Introducing the Outdoor Revolution Movelite T4E PC Driveaway Awning, the king of the 2021 awnings! This truly is the very best of this year’s drive-away awnings by Outdoor Revolution. For those of you familiar with their top-selling Movelite T4, this awning has a similar footprint but has now been recreated in breathable Polycotton Fabric for hotter climates and made to withstand extended amounts of UV exposure as well as being better in UK climates as being more breathable it is not as susceptible to condensation issues.
To further increase usable sheltered space, the built-in front canopy can be fully enclosed using an optional porch door. This windowed porch door is complete with a full mesh panel, as well as zip-up curtains. There is also a zip to allow attachment of an optional large Sun Canopy which can fix either directly to the awning, or via the additional zip track on the optional Porch Door.
To further add to the size of this awning an optional Annex can be fitted to the back of it, giving huge amounts of sleeping and living space flexibility.
The Polycotton Flysheet is exquisite, allowing breathability and insulation in equal parts, dependent on the weather conditions; the fabric will contract for maximum heat retention when cold, whilst in warm weather, the material will ‘breathe’ to help maintain a more comfortable internal atmosphere. There are even acoustic benefits of using this heavy-duty canvas material, which maintains a calmer internal ambiance within the awning, especially in the wind. Featuring all the premium features that you would expect from our flagship drive-away awning, this modern classic is a fantastic option for longer term touring excursions in hotter climates.

This is a comparable awning to the Vango Galli Polycotten (old name ~ Rhone) or the Outwell Jonnesville 440SA or Kampa Touring Air Polycotten – it boasts the same great design in that going parallel to the vehicle is less pitch hungry than some others on the market. It has some other great features such as an additional side door opposite the connecting door to the vehicle as well as doors in the either side of the tunnel. What makes this model really different though is that it is so flexible with the optional extras that can be added to make it the biggest driveaway awning on the market. It has the ability to have the optional Canopy fitted on the front of it making it an even larger usable space and to have the porch enclosed with a door plus an annex on the back of it. The canopy could then also be used directly onto the vehicle with the addition of the Retro Connector.
How to Attach to a Vehicle
THULE or FIAMMA WINDOUT AWNING
Many vehicles have one of these two types of windout awnings attached to them which have a channel available. In order to driveaway from these you will need a Kador and Figure of 8 conversion Therefore if you have the Thule Omnistor you will need this item here, and if you have the Fiamma you will need this item here along with the Figure of 8 here.
FIGURE OF 8 CLIPPED TO GUTTER / POLE AND CLAMP ON GUTTER
There are a few options for attaching this awning to your vehicle which depends slightly on the type of vehicle. The older vans with the gutter channel may use just the Figure of 8 and clip this on (depending a little on the condition of the gutter channel). This works to a certain extent but can come unclipped if it gets windy. They can also use a pole and clamp system although this is not a method I would personally recommend as I have seen one end of a pole come off before and then make a big mess of the van as the metal pole clangs against it. Some pole systems use sucker pads which are even more unreliable.
The best option by far is an awning rail. I make bespoke rails for the every vehicle. For some vehicles with existing bolt holes I can do a bolt on rail. For other vehicles including those with pop top or high top and virtually any other vehicle I can do a one piece chamfered and shaped self fit kit which glues and screws on and comes with everything you need to fit it. These rails are a proper channel which will take the beading of the awning directly if not wishing to drive away or with the use of Figure of 8 and Double sided Kador bead you can drive away with ease whilst giving a quick, easy and the most weatherproof and secure attachment possible. This will not come off if it gets windy. It is recommended to avoid a J rail or Magnetic Kador – they are not very effective and you will almost certainly end up buying twice!
