Kampa Travel Pod Touring Air
( Weathershield HD 6000 )
The Kampa Travel Pod Touring Air is available in two versions ( two material types ), Weathershield HD or Weathershield Airflow Classic Polycotton – a breathable material that reduces condensation and helps regulate the interior temperature.
This product is the Weathershield HD version which is available in all three height options ( VW, L, XL ).
The Touring AIR is designed to sit alongside your vehicle, providing the maximum amount of space without extending beyond your pitch. The large connecting tunnel can easily be attached to your vehicle and has a generously proportioned side door. This tunnel is capacious enough to be used for additional storage. The Touring AIR has a large front canopy, providing protection from both good and bad weather and allows the front door to be opened when it’s raining. In addition, an optional canopy, vestibule and mesh vestibule are available for both material variants.
Once inside you’ll find a huge living space that has plenty of windows, all with zip-up blinds, and three doors, all with mosquito mesh screens. A large four berth inner tent is supplied as standard that can be used for sleeping or even storage if required. The Touring AIR is available with the connecting tunnel in a left-hand (L/H) configuration for UK vehicles and right-hand (R/H) for European vehicles.
The Travel Pod Motion 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 electric pump is available to make the process of inflating the awning even easier.
Available Methods Of Attaching This Awning To Your Vehicle
This awning can be attached to the your vehicle by no less than four different methods giving it excellent versatility and providing you with greater choice.
- 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.
