NEWS – My husband enjoys rocketry. Prior to now, we’d head out to a distant space the place the Dallas Space Rocketry Society (DARS) can be launching rockets. As soon as there, we’d pitch a pop-up cover to guard us from the blazing Texas solar whereas my husband prepped his rockets for launch. The downside to such a cover is that it’s fairly cumbersome and simply adversely affected by the wind and rain.

After I visited the DAYLODGE web site after seeing it on coolthings.com and noticed the AirHaven, I used to be intrigued.

Surprisingly, there are “no poles, rods, mechanical units, fastened mounting {hardware}, or floor assist” wanted to make use of the AirHaven. When the wind blows, the awning bends after which pops again into place as a result of it’s inflatable. To inflate it, you employ an ordinary high-volume air pump (the pump does NOT include the awning).

You possibly can set the AirHaven 40 up on automobiles with or with out racks. On these with out racks, you should use aftermarket suction anchors, magnetic mounts, or DAYLODGE Flexmount VHB anchors. Might this be a substitute for our popup cover? We don’t have one, nevertheless it appears promising.

The DAYLODGE AirHaven 40 is an up to date awning from the AirHaven 30 and is out there for preorder from the DAYLODGE web site for $599.00.  It is available in a camo colour model and blackout cover (for extra shade) choices. There are solely 50 of the awnings accessible proper now for presale which are set to ship in September 2023.

The web site doesn’t element what comes with the AirHaven 40, however the earlier model got here with the awning, carrying bag, setup directions, and attachment equipment (automobile slider, hinged door, gutter/channel attachment equipment, common attachment equipment included for prime anchor level setups together with racks, and so forth.).

The next movies present some extra information on the awning and about methods to arrange and take away it:
