An epic adventure: A story of freedom and exploration
Picture this: Georgia and Rob, a couple of adventurous travellers from Sydney, had always dreamed of embarking on an epic road trip across Australia. With their trusty Troopy and Destination4WD 270 degree Australian made awning, they set off on a journey that would change their life.
Rob and Georgia’s road trip took them through the vast Australian landscape, from the Blue Mountains where they encountered 100km/hr winds, to the depths of the cold in Tassie, and over to the breathtaking beaches of Western Australia (where the locals will tell you the wind is different, stronger, over there.
And they say the versatility of the Destination4WD Australian made awning has proved invaluable throughout their journey to date. When scorching temperatures hit, they easily set up the awning to create a shaded oasis to relax and escape that intense heat.
The awning’s sturdy construction has on multiple occasions withstood gusty winds and provided the couple with a secure shelter during stormy nights.
And not only did their D270 awning protect them from the elements, but it’s also been a hub for socialising with fellow travellers, with the spaciousness and thoughtful design allowing them to comfortably accommodate friends on the road.
You can follow the adventures (and see the Destination4WD D270 in action, they use it every day!) at OurDaysTouring here.
