Although we manufacture both canvas and vinyl annexes, at Kakadu Annexes we highly recommend vinyl for your next annexe.

At Kakadu Annexes we use only the best quality materials when we manufacture our annexes and that is why we recommend vinyl.



Vinyl is a lightweight, reinforced vinyl laminate, a light and rugged caravan annexe fabric designed specifically for caravan annexes.

Will not crack

Vinyl will not split or crack as its thought by many people. It is specifically made for touring use and outdoor use. It is flexible and easy to handle, while offering long lasting good looks at an affordable price.

Co – ordinated

It comes in a broad range of colours ensuring there is one to suit your caravan whether it is brand new or an older one.

UV Resistant

Vinyl is U.V resistant. It is made for Australia’s harsh conditions, formulated to resist degradation due to sunlight. A life expectancy with typical family holiday use could be up to 15 years although commensurately shorter with more frequent use.

Fire Resistant

Vinyl is also fire-resistant meeting the requirements of AS2930 standards. Most other annexe fabrics fail these tests, which is a real hazard when you consider that the only exit out of a caravan is through the annexe.

High Opacity

Don’t worry about night time silhouettes either. Vinyl has a high opacity for complete privacy and although it won’t be dark inside your Kakadu annexe it won’t be like a glass house either.

Easy To Maintain

Coastline products are very easily maintained. Dirt, grease, cooking fats even that red bull dust cleans off by a gentle scrub with a soft bristle brush and most diluted mild detergents or soap. Repeat the process for difficult stains. Avoid using harsh cleaning agents, abrasives and hydrocarbon solvents.

No Stitching

Your Vinyl Kakadu Annexe is fully welded by high frequency welding machines which means there is not stitching that will eventually leak, rot and break down. Proper welding will last the lifetime of the product.


With regular cleaning and correct treatment your Kakadu Annexe will come up good as new for years to come. If treated harshly the vinyl can scratch as with many products when dragged across concrete or sharp rough edges, but with a little care your annexe will have high strength and durability.

Vinyl is cooler

Due to the reflective quality of vinyl being a smooth membrane the heat bounces off the vinyl making it cooler inside your annexe. Canvas being textured woven fabric tends to absorb the heat and radiated that inside making it hotter although that may be beneficial if you camp in the snow or colder environments but that usually isn’t the case.
