Dometic Ace Air All Season 400 S
With the Dometic Ace Air All Season 400, Dometic have introduced a seasonal pitch awning ( meaning it can remain pitched for longer periods than standard awnings ) with all the advantages that air awnings give; ease of set up being one of the most obvious.
The All-Season uses a material Dometic call Weathershield All-Season. This material has been developed and tested to suit awnings which will remain pitched for longer periods ( but note it is not suitable for winter or snow conditions ). The testing included some of the hottest and some of the wettest environments to ensure that the material is suitable for use in this awning.
The awning also has external window blinds, a double mud wall, a large side window mesh panel and an adjustable canopy. It also has Dometic's Dual Pitch Roof System ( see below for more information ).
The awning is what Dometic call 'Limpet Ready', meaning it is ready to accept Dometic's Limpet Fix System. This is clever method of attaching the side walls of the awning to the caravan.
The awning benefits from Dometic's Single Point Inflation. This is a single point from where the entire awning is inflated including all airpoles and beams. This also means that there is only one valve ( on other brands, each of the poles are seperate and need to be pumped up individually ).
The Ace Air All Season 400 is also what Dometic call 'Sabre Link Ready'. The SabreLink Link System provides effective lighting to your awning. You can link up to three light strips together with each strip having 150 LED lights. This is an optional extra.
A unique feature to the Dometic range, the AccessoryTrack adds an extra line of beading running on the inside, parallel with the awning beading that connects the awning to the caravan. This allows for accessories, such as an organiser and hanging rail, to be attached to the awning through the use of a specially designed connection by Dometic.

Dometic Dual Pitch Roof System
Introduced in the 2018 awning season, Dometic have developed a roof system, giving their caravan awnings greater interior headroom. This increases the practical nature of the awnings and makes Dometic awnings even more desirable and spacious.
As well as increased headroom, Dometic have considered the importance of the roof's performance. To avoid pockets of water sitting on the roof, it is important that rain water is shed efficiently. It is also important that wind is deflected. Both these requirements are achieved by the careful consideration given to the pole structure of each roof - maintaining it's tautness and thereby avoiding slack areas that are prone to puddling.
Dometic Single Inflation Point
Because Dometic link all the airpoles the entire awning can be inflated and deflated from a single point; this includes all supporting airpoles and beams - there are no additional poles to inflate. This makes the inflatable awning even quicker and easier to setup and pack away.
Dometic Sabre Link Ready
This means that the awning is ready to use with Dometic's SabreLink System - a lighting system design specifically by Dometic for Dometic awnings. It allows you to link upto three lights together ( providing 450 LED's ). The Sabrelink system can be fixed to the front and centre poles of the awning.
Dometic Limpet Ready
This means that the awning is ready to use with Dometic's Limpet Fix System - a very handy and clever way of attaching the rear wall of your Dometic awning to your caravan. The awning has pre-cut holes and you place the Limpet through these holes. You can then attach the Limpet to a smooth surface on your caravan.
Dometic QuickPitch Guying System
Heavy duty straps that can be pegged out in seconds. Peg the bottom strap taut and adjust the top buckle to apply tension.
Single Point Inflation Airframe awnings inflate entirely from just one external point, creating an exceptionally strong structure. The AirFrame is incredibly durable, each AirPole is made of a strong TPU inflation tube zipped into a reinforced laminated oxford polyester/PE cover, which is then zipped into a heavy-duty polyester sleeve in the awning.
