Hatch Shack

The Hatch Shack is the baby of the Packashack family, providing a flexible, easy-to-use vehicle awning for use on smaller cars or estates with tailgates. It was designed around the Nissan Note. Your tailgate should ideally be as flat as possible and open at a shallow angle to work, if in doubt get in touch with us to check before buying. Packa Shacks are intended to be used as a temporary shelter or changing room.

The Hatch Shack attaches to the vehicle using a system of suckers, hooks on to the wheel of the car, and shock cord which tightens around the body of the car like a hood.  

The Hatch Shack here has three independent zips on the front panel, a vertical zip on both sides and one along the bottom, allowing you to use the whole front panel as an awning to extend the space offered by the Shack.

Or if you’re just nipping in or out to get changed, you can open one of the side zips to create a ‘slit’ entrance.

Add awning poles to extend the space your Shack offers by turning the fully opening panel into a 2m deep awning. Add to cart here.
