    Personal choice really. I have one fitted, so park up and wind it out, if free standing it will not meet the van so if it rains you will get wet going from awning to van.if free standing you can put it where you like.

    .. Or you could get a drive away awning... Some of these will "fit" to the van. Example being the movelite range.
    But they can be a bit time consuming to put up

    We have an Omnistor with wind blocker sides. We used to have the whole safari room but it was just too heavy to carry around. Works well for us.
