Kampa Travel Pod Cross Air
Designed to fit vehicles up to 230 cm high.
A classic favourite, the Travel Pod Cross AIR builds on the success of the Travel Pod range. Now even easier to set up than ever, the Cross AIR utilises the Kampa inflatable AirFrame to create a large sturdy living space with very good headroom thanks to the vertical wall design.
The Cross AIR comes with a clip-in groundsheet that can be used when required and features large windows, with blinds for added privacy, and mesh panels for ventilation. The Cross AIR can be fitted with an optional annexe (240 x 175 cm) on either or both sides. The annexe comes complete with an inner tent (210 x 170 cm).
The Travel Pod Cross AIR is freestanding and can be connected to the vehicle in one of three ways – pole & clamp, beading or guy line method. The rear tunnel comes with adjusting straps to take up any slack. The awning has large panoramic windows to let the light in and for a great view out – these all have roll away blinds. Folds into a compact, oversized carry bag.
Available Methods Of Attaching This Awning To Your Vehicle
The Travel Pod Cross 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 considered 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.
Kampa AirFrame LogoThe Travel Pod Cross 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.
