Over the past 10 years Kampa have undoubtedly become one of the most well respected manufacturers of freestanding and fixed motorhome awnings, with a reputation based on sound design and value for money in an immensely competitive market place. Kampa, however, have an advantage over many of their competitors – innovation.

Now with a comprehensive range of both traditional poled and inflatable motorhome awnings suitable for almost any vehicle type, the new 2016 range adds features not found on other manufacturer’s products – this exceptional level of care and detail are certain to cement Kampa as a class leader in this marketplace.

The largest model in the range, the Kampa Travel Pod Maxi has a 3m x 5.1m living space with an internal height of 2.2m.

Designed to fit vehicle heights up to 190cm – the Kampa Travel Pod awnings are a perfect fit for most Volkswagen Campervans like the T4 and T5, but are equally suited to Renault Traffic Van Conversions, Vauxhall Vivario and Ford Transit based campervans. The Kampa Travel Pod Mini and Kampa Travel Pod Midi both come with a two berth bedroom inner tent which can be hung or removed in a few seconds, helping to maximise your living accommodation without sacrificing the benefits of additional sleeping capacity.

The Kampa Travel Pod Maxi includes a large four berth bedroom which can also be removed when you need additional space for entertaining. All the supplied bedroom inner tents have built in storage and organiser pockets with fully sewn in groundsheets and flyscreen doors and vents.

Thoughtfully the Kampa Travel Pods have clip in tub groundsheets, which keep the interior clean, dry and bug free – importantly, the groundsheets can be detached should your chosen site not allow the use of groundsheets over extended holidays.

The Kampa Travel Pods boast universal fit for campervans, with a number of options available to suit your particular requirements. All windows have internal window blinds with storage pockets and large access doors through the connecting tunnel and the entire range comes complete with a set of upright steel poles which convert the front door into a shady sun canopy or can be used to hold the side tunnel up when the camper is not in situ.
