It should go without saying that being protected from the elements can make a world of difference to your caravanning adventure. As much as we all want to be outside, having a secondary space — aside from the caravan itself — that provides a refuge from the rain, sun, and insects can be key.
Enter Xtend Outdoors, a family-owned manufacturer of caravan awnings and annexes. With its origins on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Xtend Outdoors is continuing to make its presence known Australia-wide. By offering an on-site fitting service in most locations across the country via a dedicated network of installers, in addition to freighting directly to the doors of its customers, the reach of Xtend goes way beyond its Sunny Coast home.
The owner of the business, Danny Smith, originally learnt the craft of creating caravan annexes in his teenage years, and learning from his father, a local caravan manufacturer himself, made it something of a family business for the Smiths. This remains something Xtend continues to pride themselves on and has ensured the quality of craftsmanship and level of attention to detail are second-to-none. Nothing in the design and manufacturing processes are compromised or overlooked.
Take their Australia Wide Annexe, for example. Combining decades of caravan knowledge with only the highest quality materials, Xtend Outdoors has created a self-described ‘home away from home’ that gives adventurers plenty of room to ensconce themselves away from the rain and sun, while still being able to relax outside in fresh air. Custom-made for individual caravans, the components of these annexes — namely the doors and windows — can be reconfigured at any time, giving caravanners a highly flexible layout that changes as their preferences and needs do.
When taking into account that these annexes are double-stitched, have triple-layer components, removable panels, and include an anti-flap kit, it becomes clear Xtend Outdoors know their craft inside and out.
This is but one offering of the business. In stocking a broad spectrum of products for caravans, pop-tops, campers, and 4WDs — extension rooms, porches, anti-flap kits, shade walls, and myriad other accessories — Xtend Outdoors are likely to have something that will add extra versatility, ease, and space to your setup.
Xtend Outdoors visit most caravan shows in Australia, so be on the lookout at your local expo — chances are you'll be able to pick the brains of their highly knowledgeable team and take a gander at their range for yourself.
