A smarter, better kind of awning
Carefree Awnings and Accessories have launched their new Altitude awning, which is setting the bar when it comes to awning intelligence and style. Featuring a number of advanced technologies that will set your RV apart from the crowd without the high price tag.
The Carefree Altitude RV awning has been designed to make the outside of your RV, “the place to be”, and let’s be honest, isn’t that the point of having an RV to start with, to get out and see what is out there. Carefree have achieved this with its long list of contemporary technologies, which includes operation through a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone app that allows the user to extend or retract the awning, turn the LED lighting on, off or dim and even to adjust Carefree Motion’s sensitivity to wind via their phone. The Altitude awning has been developed to provide an easy to install, contemporary patio awning that fits the lifestyles and tastes of today’s younger, more tech savvy RV buyers. It follows Carefree’s automotive styling and has been designed to complement the caravan sidewall rather than cluttering it.
• Memory pitch – awning extends out to the same pitch it was retracted from.
• Exclusive pitch adjustments – now with easier to use buttons for adjustment. You can even change the pitch when the awning is closed.
• Bluetooth enabled – the optional wireless awning control system and mobile app allow you to control awning extension, retraction, LED lighting and the sensitivity of the wireless motion sensor from a mobile device.
