Kampa Motor Rally Air Pro 260
Kampa updated the Kampa Motor Rally Air Pro 260 in 2017 improving the awning material - Weathershield Pro - this now has improved coatings and UV protection and there is now a new sealing method that enables the awning to fit snuggly against the motorhome. Further improvements in 2018 mean the awning now features a new connection method to protruding roll out awnings that allows the awning to sit flat against the motorhome.
With a width of 2.60 metres and a depth of 2.50 metres, the Kampa Motor Rally Air Pro 260 provides over 6 square metres of extra room to your motorhome or campervan.
With airframe technology and Kampa's single point inflation system, the Kampa Motor Rally Air Pro is quick and easy to set up. It has a steep angled front and therefore provides very good headroom and lots of useful space.
With it's crystal clear, large front windows, the awning not only has plenty of light coming in, but also provides excellent views out. For a bit more light there are also skylights in the roof.
The awning is 'Sabre Link' ready - that is to say, it not supplied with Kampa's Sabre Link system but it is able to be fitted to the awning if you choose to do so using the velcro strips that are already in place. Sabrelink is a lighting system using strips of LED lights. These strips can be linked together and can be controlled by a remote control. As well as being able to switch the lights on and off you are also able to alter the brightness - just like a traditional dimmer switch.
Optional equipment includes an inflatable annex and conservatory as well as mesh panel sets for the front panels. There are four versions, to suit different height campers and motorhomes - S, L, XL and XXL.
The Kampa Motor Rally Air Pro 260 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 electric pump is available to make the process of inflating the awning even easier.
What does 'Pro' stand for in the product name?
The Rally Pro series uses a more substantial, heavier duty fabric called Weathershield Pro ( updated for 2017 ) which provides excellent weatherproofing and extra durability. If you pitch your awning for longer periods of the year or during times of the year when the weather is likely to require a more robust awning then it would probably make sense to consider the Kampa Motor Rally Air Pro series.
What are the main features of the Motor Rally Air Pro series?
- They are quick and easy to setup - the awning can be can be completely set up in four to five minutes approximately and pumps up, using the manual pump supplied, in around sixty seconds (depending on your fitness, determination and competitiveness!). It uses Kampa's patented inflation system. It can be inflated from just one inflation point.
- Versatility and usability - the distinctive steep front of the awning gives excellent headroom when compared to many awnings. There are two doors; one on either side of the awning - very useful if there is a prevailing wind from one direction. The front wall panel can be arranged in several ways as the two outer front panels can be rolled to the side or the top part of each outer panel can be dropped down to create what Kampa calls the 'veranda style'.
- Other features include Kampa's Upright Poles that keep the rear of the awning close to the side of your motorhome. Crystal clear windows with internal curtains, ventilation in the eaves, Kampa's Accessory Track and a mud flap with eyelets to help keep out draughts.
Available Methods Of Attaching This Awning To Your Vehicle
This awning can be attached to the your vehicle by the beading method only.
- 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.
