Fast off and save money: fuel efficiency

Leave your awning at home!

One of the best reasons to take off your awning when you don’t need it, say during the week when you are commuting, is the increasing fuel prices.

Taking your roof rack awning doesn’t only make it easier to fit into a car park or reduce wind drag, it also improves fuel consumption.

This will not only increase the “lifetime” of your awning, stored away from the sun and other damaging effects of the weather, but you will also see a difference on your fuel bill.

With the RacksBrax HD Hitch it only takes a few seconds to take your awning off your roof rack and with the RacksBrax Wall Mount it has never been easier to simply store your awning at home, away from the harsh Australian conditions, while keeping it easily accessible for when you want to take off on your next adventure.

And isn’t it better to spend your money on professional and useful 4WD gear than on wasted fuel?

❗ The RacksBrax HD Hitches come with smooth Cover insets to fill in the gap where your awning was; leaving you with a tidy look on the side of your vehicle.


Take off on your next adventure!
