Destination4WD 180 4WD side awning is designed and made in Australia by our master tradespeople

100% Aussie made

“Totally in love with our D270 degree awning, it’s small size (packed up) fits the lines of our Prado perfectly, it’s super easy to set up, gives enormous amount of shade, (this thing is huge)! We’ve been in market for an awning for over a year. I’ve looked very close at other awnings and always walked away as there’s been some components that I felt could be better for the price, (hinge designs/plastic components/canvas quality/overall build quality of some left me shaking my head). Until I saw the D270 from Destination4WD. 4mm alloy arms, heavy stainless hinge, very easy and fast to set up/pack down, extendable arms make it huge, thick but light Aussie canvas and materials, designed and built in FNQ to last, excellent overall build quality, 100% Aussie… Yes, we’re very happy with our D270 awning, we see it as a solid investment that greatly improves our 4×4/camping experiences, and will for years too come, great product.”

D180: Why you’ll love our 180 degree awning


A huge benefit – no poles required! (Poles just get in the way). Our D180 degree freestanding awning opens easily and quickly, and folds away in minutes.


Our 180 degree awning has a 4mm stainless steel base that gives the awning the strength to handle strong winds. Each arm is reinforced at the base with an extra layer of 2mm aluminium to increase its strength even further, while strategically placed nylon washers minimise movement and reinforced bosses further increase the arms’ strength.


We use Australian-made, high-grade quality260g/sqm canvas that is suitable for the harsh Australian weather and sun. It’s thick, tough, durable, and UV and water-resistant. It won’t pool and will survive huge downpours and fierce winds.


A proud Australian company, we believe in using Australian products and suppliers wherever possible. Our tradespeople are masters and our engineering and craftsmanship is second to none.


Our 180 4x4 awning arms extend out to 2.9m and the awning provides 12sqm of shade and coverage. The coverage area is 4.2m x 2m x 2.9 x 2m.


The aluminium base of the D180 degree awning is 2.2m which is shorter than most. The arms are attached to a strong and sturdy 4mm-thick stainless steel base mounting bracket. The arms are 2mm aluminium and reinforced with 4mm aluminium at each base.

STRONG BRACKETS (complimentary)

The D 180 awning has complimentary 3mm stainless steel brackets with a unique design to lock on to most roof racks. It is easy to install yourself.


The D180 free standing 4WD awning weighs in at 23kg.


Passenger and driver’s side options available.

About the canvas fabric

The D180 degree awning is made using prestige Dynaproofed Outback Rugged Coolabah™ TS canvas, made from Japara cotton fabric. The Japara cotton fabric is impregnated with a paraffin-based wax and is finely woven into a very strong and durable cloth that is thick in texture, but has a silky feel and look. It is also less susceptible to liquids and other staining elements. SPECS: It is a superfine woven, 65/35 poly/cotton, plain weave Japara, 39.4 ends per cm, 26.8 picks per cm, 265g/sqm (6oz), which means it’s thick, tough and water-resistant and it can survive huge downpours of water (750mm per min). The Dynaproofed™ process guarantees to be waterproof and every batch of the canvas produced to exacting standards. The Dynaproofed™ chemical formulation also provides resistance against degradation caused from harmful UV, as well as resistance against bacteria, algae and fungi growth. While the canvas guarantees to be waterproof, the technically superior production system for Dynaproofed™ canvas fabrics ensures the chemical formulation is fully integrated into the base fabric and squeezed into the fibres.
