Comments from Maurice & Sharon
Just a quick note to thank you and to tell you what a wonderful product your roll-out shade awning is.We used it many times on Moreton Island on our recent holiday and it was easy and straight forward to use and the 3 meter x 3 meter size was terrific for our young grandson to play under.We have included some photos just to show you how it is set up on our truck and I enjoyed our little chat when I came to pick it up from your factory at Wacol.
Once again, thank you very much.

Awnings are necessary for these places as there are not many trees on the beach.
Donated by John Hubach at Fitzgerald River National Park
Got back from our trip to the Fitzgerald River National Park on the south coast at the weekend. Had a great time, good weather, remote locations, & challenging driving. Here are a couple of photos, the awning did everything I needed it to do, in many configurations. I will only send a couple of photos at a time, so the "system" don't get "overloaded" !!
I was really impressed by the quality & workmanship, & even in strong winds I didn't need to attach any guy ropes.
You are more than welcome to use any of my photos or text in advertising for the Polaris Awning. Let me know if you need anything specific.
Hope all is well in your world, P J
( John liked to add a bit of colour to his emails to brighten the day. He did a good job of it)

Hello Ross. Here is stage 1. It went great. I have 2 more to send
This was done to Noela's design with a taper up to the end so the door can be opened fully. It worked perfect.
And this is the last one. Easy easy!

Just would like to say thanks!
I had my first weekend camping trip last week with my eldest boy, my brother and his two kids came as well.
I finally got to try the adapter out and it works a treat, the LED lights fitted no problem also. As it was sort of a trial run we camped in a caravan park and I actually had two separate strangers comment on how good my set up was, I had a little chuckle when my brothers comment to the second one was "what about mine".
I have included a couple of photos of the set up and would just like to express my thanks for your excellent service.
Thank you for this Peter. It reminds me of when my kids were young. We could take them to Fraser Island for 2 weeks without TV or any electronic entertainment and they enjoyed every minute of it and never got bored.
I cannot say that I made this one, I am not that old.
This model is on display in the Louis Vuitton display at the Beijing Museum.
After seeing this I believe the awnings must have been first designed by Louis Vuitton. He also had a roof top tent.
As promised here is a photo of our Polaris black awning opened out. Thought it might be a bit hot sitting under the awning being dark in colour, but it wasn't. Need a pair of gloves to roll it up though as it is very hot. Looks great and works well.
This picture was taken at Boat harbor, kurnell, Cronulla area
Comment from Ross.
I am surprised that it is not hot underneath as I have not tried the black before. I guess the main characteristic of the canvas we use (besides the strength and durability of it) is how it breathes and does not leak water. The breathing ability makes airflow, enough to stop it from holding in the heat. This airflow is obviously enough to make the darkest of colours cool underneath.

Just thought I'd send a long overdue thank you email for the awning you made for our 100 series LandCruiser.
David Sutton Samerai beach
These are some Photos sent from David. He had an awning made to his specifications with the side Fly Screen only filling two thirds of the awning area. Walls all around with a short wall on the rear awning.
These pictures were taken at Samerai beach up near nelsons bay....be careful though as it is a nudist beach .
Steve at Toodyay WA
Here are some photos that I took last weekend on a camping trip to Toodyay, WA. Thanks for the awning,it is fantastic. I have had many positive comments on it already. In my opinion, although you may feel the price on the high side once compared to other awning on the market, the Polaris Innovation awning is worth every extra penny spent. The quality of this awning is far better than the other "usual" ones I've seen used, plus the choice of colours available is excellent, in my case matching the car perfectly. I found it easy and quick to set up by myself and a valued asset to any camp.

Comments from Maryann
Back view of annex we are very happy with it. It is on the van even while I use it for work and it
is not a problem. I also hope to use it at Markets. The vinyl case is great also, very un intrusive.
They went well and fit great.

Here are some photos that I took last weekend. I took my boys camping along the Murray River.

Darryn has advised us that he is able to fit awnings to vehicles in his workshop at
Rudall River National Park
We received the awning in time for our trip. Thanks for your efforts. The mounting system works a treat.
We didn't fit it up until a couple of days into the trip as we picked it up on our way out of town.
This is by far the best awning I have seen for this application - simple to use and very effective.
These photos taken at a lunch stop between Nullagine and Rudall River National Park.
Fraser Island beside Elli Creek
A note from Ross. This is where I was with my wife sitting under a beach umbrella on a hot December day, when she told me she wanted me to make a proper awning for our 4X4. Actually she was on my back for about 3 years to make it. I finally made it and have been in the good books since then.
This is an ideal situation. On Fraser Island beside Elli Creek relaxing under the awning
between swims in the crystal clear, freezing cold pure water in Elli Creek.

This is Pat at the races at Leyburn. Pat has his awning screwed through the side of the pop top 4X4 Hiace van.
Steve Kelly at Moreton Island
If you live on the Sunshine coast and want a good builder. Contact Kelly Builders at email@example.com
This is a good friend of mine from Coolum Queensland. Steve is a builder on the North Coast and uses his awning as a smoko van. As you can see he must be doing some hard work on Moreton Island with his wife and sleeping in a tent. If you look closely you would probably find a fishing rod instead of a hammer.
