ARB Awning – RECOIL Range Truck
No matter where you shoot, having a nice area to prep your gear or to take a breather is a definite plus. When the sun is out and hot overhead it can be near impossible to cool down. Heatstroke and sunburn are a real concern. Luckily the folks over at ARB have a solution. The ARB Awning attaches to your truck’s roof rack and deploys in 30 seconds. Made of durable PVC lined polyester, the awning is waterproof and offers UV protection.
We have one on the range truck we usually take out. It easily bolts to holes that you drill into your roof rack. We were able to install ours in about an hour. The awning is stores in an attached heavy-duty PVS lined bag that features an equally heavy-duty zipper closure.
To set it up, roll out the awning and unfold the collapsible legs. The legs are telescopic and can be adjusted for uneven surfaces and differing truck heights. The legs come with roped stakes that can be driven into the ground. On hard surfaces we weigh them down with ropes attached to ammo cans. Our truck’s awning stands about 7-feet 6-inches so aside from an NBA center, nobody needs to duck when getting under it.
Perfect for all sorts of outdoor activities, the ABR Awning has become an indispensable part of our truck. Because it is unobtrusive and ready to go whenever you need it.
