The new 23 ZERO range of Raven vehicle awnings have been carefully designed to enhance strength and rigidity. The new modern slim line design together with the one piece box extruded body frame makes The Raven one of the most compact and strongest awnings on the market. The main profile design and construction means The Raven does not require the use of inferior rivets ensuring the awning maintains its strength whilst secured on the vehicle at all times.
Full E-coated aluminium with up to 5 sail rope adaptable tracks allow for extension walls, strip lighting, annexes and gear pockets to easily attach.
Flexible hinges also prevent stress fatigue on rafter and leg poles.
The Raven 2000 Pull-out awning also features 23 ZERO’s latest innovation – climate control Light Suppression Technology (LST)
LST is a uniquely formulated dark coating applied to the underside of the awning, the inside of the canvas awning walls and the inside of 23 ZERO roof top tents models effectively defusing sunlight and UV rays from passing through the awning canvas or entering the inside of the tent.
Engineered to be applied to 23 ZERO’s hard wearing polycotton canvas with a two pass process including an anti UV treatment, Light Suppression Technology provides the added benefit of keeping you cooler during hot summer days

The shade and rain protection from the canvas in this awning are excellent, but there’s a big downside in the overall design – the cover LEAKS!!! Water gets into the bag if you’re driving in any amount of rain. It gets in through gaps in the corners of the cover, as well as underneath the end plate at both ends. For this reason, I cannot recommend this item. Hopefully 23Zero will re-release their awnings with a different style of cover.
I researched a lot of brands when looking for a new awning. I didn't want BCF cheap and nasty, but I didn't want to overpay either. Based on reviews and specifications (having never seen one in the flesh) I took the chance on the 23Zero Raven 2000 and I'm so glad I did! It took a little longer to arrive than expected, but was well worth the wait. The brackets and rail are sturdy, the bag is thick and the awning is both solid and functional. I highly recommend this if you're looking for a midrange product that's great value and sure to last for years.
