Kampa Travel Pod Maxi Air VW

Kampa-LogoPlease Note: This is the 'VW' model of the Kampa Travel Pod Maxi Air and is suitable for fitting to vehicles that have a rail height of 180‑210cm. If the attachment height of your vehicle is higher than 210cm then you require the 'L' or 'XL' model.
General Description
The Travel Pod Maxi Air has been designed to maximise space on a pitch and it excells in regard to this aspect. With a depth of only 3 metres from your vehicle the side-on design should avoid extra pitch charges. With a depth of 3 metres and a width of 3.05 metres, the Kampa Travel Pod Maxi Air VW provides an overall space of just over 6 square metres. Even more space is provided by the connecting tunnel - very handy for wet gear, dirty walking boots and other similar items. The awning has a side tunnel connection that enables the awning to connect to either left or right hand drive vehicles. The rear tunnel comes with adjusting straps to take up any slack.

Available Methods Of Attaching This Awning To Your Vehicle
The Travel Pod Maxi AIR is freestanding and can be connected to the vehicle in one of four ways.
  • The Pole and Clamp Method - ( Optional Extra ) This method provides the greatest security with regard to the attachment of the awning to the vehicle and is suitable for vehicles that have a gutter running the length of the vehicle. At the rear of the awning is a tunnel that has a sleeve. This sleeve is sewn along the tunnel's length. Into this sleeve you slide a pole. The pole is placed into the vehicle's gutter and secured to the vehicle using the clamps that Kampa supply.
  • The Beading Method - All Kampa Travel Pod awnings have a tunnel to the rear. Sewn in, along the length of this tunnel is 6mm beading. If the vehicle has an awning rail you can use this along with the beading to attach the awning to the vehicle. Alternatively, the beading can be clipped to the vehicle gutter using a 'figure of 8' profile ( not supplied ). Kampa also have an optional extra, called a 'driveaway kit' that can be used for this purpose.
  • The Guyline Method - This is generally considred to be the fastest method - so it can be very handy if you are setting up in undesirable weather conditions or not staying on the pitch for long. Firstly, attached the guylines to the top corners of the rear awning tunnel. Next, throw the guylines over the vehicle. Finally, you can either peg the guylines down or alternatively, secure them to an appropriate part of the vehicle.
  • The Velcro Loops Method - This method is only applicable if your vehicle is fitted with roof rails. If it does, then you can use the velcro straps that are fitted along the top edge of the awning tunnel to attach the awning to your vehicle. You do this by simply fixing the velcro loops around the roof rail.
The awning has large panoramic windows to let the light in and for a great view out - these all have roll away blinds. The awning folds into a compact, oversized carry bag. The large 4 berth inner tent makes the Maxi AIR a great choice for families and groups with the central roll up partition offering privacy between the two pods.

The awning comes complete with a fully waterproof clip-in groundsheet. However, many sites do not allow groundsheets and so the groundsheet can be left out if necessary - an important issue if you intend to use camping sites. There are two versions, to suit different height campers and motorhomes.

With airfarme technology and Kampa's single point inflation system the Kampa Travel Pod Maxi Air VW is quick and easy to set up. A nice feature of the awning is the ability to connect to your vehicle by a variety of methods ( see below for more detailed information ).

Airframe Technology
Kampa AirFrame LogoThe Travel Pod Maxi Air uses an airframe ( also known as airpoles ) to replace conventional metal or fibreglass poles. Because these types of awnings are more lightweight they are generally easier to transport and position on-site than conventional awnings. The awning can be inflated quickly and easily through a single inflation point because all the poles are linked together. Additional advantages include the fact that the airframe is always attached ( no need to find or remember your poles ) and that there is less likelihood of damage to your caravan because only soft materials are fixed against it. All things considered the airframe has become the trusted and most popular choice for today's caravanners. A high volume manual pump is supplied but an optional electic pump is available to make the process of inflating the awning even easier.

Drive-Away Awnings
Drive-Away awnings offer convenience. They avoid the need to set up and take down your awning every time you wish to use your vehicle on the road. The

Kampa Travel Pod Maxi AIR VW

is a free-standing awning that enables you to drive-away and enjoy your day out. Meanwhile, your awning remains completely set-up and is ready to be simply re-attached on your return.
