For immediate release- Thule, the global leader in offering smart solutions for the active lifestyle, is launching their Thule Awning at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market trade show on July 26, 2017. New to the North American markets for 2018, Thule’s award winning product category in other global markets includes a lightweight awning made of aluminum and waterproof fabrics, featuring an easily retractable design that mounts onto roof racks, or directly to a variety of outdoor vehicles with available adapters.

A versatile solution for any outdoor adventure, the Thule Awning is incredibly stable and secure thanks to an all-aluminum construction, while able to withstand the elements due to upgraded fabrics and an optimized fabric tension system. Stay protected from the sun and rain with the UV treated, waterproof awning fabric, composed of one single sheet with welded joints, creating a perfectly waterproof and long-lasting awning. The Thule Awning is designed to withstand adverse conditions, remaining stable while in use due to the internal roller tube that optimizes fabric tension and the adjustable, oval shaped support legs for added strength. The easy to use included hand crank allows for one person to quickly open and close the awning, while the internal cassette adjustment system provides years of worry-free smooth operation. The universal fit attachments mount the Thule Awning directly to popular outdoor vehicles with direct mount kits, or onto roof racks, including Thule

Aeroblades, Thule Square crossbars, and most factory installed crossbars (each adapter kit sold separately). Available in 8.6’ & 10’ lengths, the Thule Awning is available January 2018.

Available: January, 2018

Price: Thule Awning 8.6’ - $649.95 USD

Thule Awning 10’ - $699.95 USD
