Modular Awning - by Front Runner

The Front Runner Modular Awning is the lightest weight and largest canopy cover of all vehicle mountable awning systems.  

Open, the awning is 11.5’/ 3.5m wide  and  8’/ 3m long -  offering 113 square feet/10.5m2 of shade!    

Extremely simple and non-permanent mounting straps allows you to mount the awning to any vehicle roof rack or factory rails, whenever and where ever you like.     

When attached to your vehicle's rack or rails, the Front Runner Modular Awning uses 5 aluminum poles for support.

An extra pole is supplied to create a stand alone awning that can be set up away from a vehicle, anywhere.    

The compact carry bag stores the poles, guy ropes, ground stakes as well as the entire awning and can be transported strapped to your roof rack or inside the vehicle. 

Made of Poly-Oxford Nylon -- a strong yet lightweight, breathable, mold resistant, waterproof, pvc coated, heavy duty fabric.  

Gable-shaped to allow for water run off.                           

The Aluminium poles hook into metal eyelets that have been fastened onto the canopy for quick and easy set up.

Product Questions

What is the diameter of the awning poles?
Question by Kai Langenberg
These awning poles are telescopic. The lower portion of the pole is 23mm (0.9") in diameter and the upper portion is closer to 25mm (0.98").
Answer by Front Runner
I noticed my awning has Velcro sleeves on the edges. Is there a screen available for this?
Question by GH
There is not currently a screen available for the Modular Awning.
Answer by Front Runner
Do the vehicle side corner poles rub against the truck?
Question by STS
The awning can free stand so it's the user's preference how close the awning can be to the vehicle. When the awning is set up correctly the poles will not rub against the vehicle.
Answer by Front Runner
Are the poles telescopic?
Question by Chad Villanueva
Yes! The poles in the Modular Awning (AWNI004) are telescopic making each easy to adjust for any terrain!
Answer by Front Runner
How long does the awning take to set up with two people?
Question by Andrew Middleton
It's a super easy set up that takes about 10 minutes. The first-time setup might take a little longer of course but you'll get the hang of it very quickly.

Question by Robert Simpson
The setup is straight forward and easier when attached to the vehicle. We do recommend the awning is set up by 2 people, young or old! Hope that helps.

Customer Reviews

Great Awning Review by Gary
I wanted an awning for my 4Runner, but didn't want to keep it mounted all the time. I opted for the Modular Awning, due to the mounting flexibility. I do a lot of primitive camping, and my vehicle cannot always be placed in the ideal location. Due to the modular design, I can easily take it off my roof rack, and mount to either side of my vehicle. I've done it a few times now, and it takes about 3 minutes to set up; and about 5 minutes to pack back up. I also like the ability to be able to deploy it without attaching it to my vehicle. High quality materials, and I love that the guy ropes are already attached. The collapsible/turn legs are durable, and allows me to easily adjust the height to the terrain. If you are looking for a permanent mount alternative, look no further.

The only thing I would change would be having the option to pack the poles inside the main awning bag (the system comes with two separate bags: a pole bag and the awning bag). (Posted on 12/06/2017)
Brilliant! Review by Mark
Fits perfectly to rack and opens out easily and quickly! And as it all stores together in its own bag, nothing gets forgotten! (Fits nicely alongside the ladder when the feather lite tent is folded up too, all together!) Add a couple of 2m x 3m tarps with poles through eyelets and you have sides to it! Stick some Velcro to the top edge of tarp and it also attaches to the top of the awning! Fantastic bit of kit! (Posted on 27/05/2017)
