The inner tubes are enclosed in their own zipped sleeve which are inter connected with a clever isolating valve system. Each section can be individually isolated from the next making for easy maintenance and more importantly keeping the size to a minimum whilst retaining strength. At the base of the awning on the inside is a unique internal corner system which keeps the uprights in the correct position and stabilises the front, sides and base. Stitched directly to the outer flysheet, the corner holds everything together in the perfect position. There is a step on the bottom of the entrance doors.
Other notable features include internal blinds with internal storage pockets & rear bumper pads. The awning is very easy to set up; slide the cord onto your caravan awning rail and peg out the bottom rear of the awning. A front section upright has its own inflation point, insert the pump into the socket and start pumping, or for the less energetic use the optional electric pump. In less than 60 seconds the awning is fully inflated and ready to peg out, it's really that easy, even manually inflating the awning is that quick. There's no magic pump or compressed air system as the Rally Air needs only 10-12 PSI recommended although the inner tubes have been tested beyond 25 PSI, much higher pressures than you could achieve with a manual hand pump. Testing to these pressures is important as air pressure increases with temperature. You want to know the awning will hold its shape in the warm sunshine right?
It's virtually impossible to over inflate this awning with the supplied pump as the tubes are double sealed in their own sleeve, which would increase the resistance and therefore the air pressure. Like an inner tube in a tyre - it's relatively easy to over inflate a tube out of the tyre, but much harder when the tubes in the tyre.
One things for sure, these awnings pack away nicely and have the obvious advantage of being lightweight and easy to store. The Kampa Rally Air 260 weighs in at a miserly 15.3kgs whilst the Kampa Rally Air 390 is around 18.3kgs. By comparison the Air 390 is nearly 10kg lighter than its metal framed brother, whilst offering the same footprint. Both awnings come complete with their own compression storage bag and both are designed to fit an awning rail height of 235 - 250cm
The guidelines are stitched to heavy duty pegging point about two thirds the way up on the front uprights and again at the very bottom. Kampa call this their Quickpitch guying system. The guidelines look very much like webbing used on storm strap kits, made from high visibility webbing, very strong and a massive improvement on the normal guidelines used on most awnings. Pegging out is just like a normal Kampa Rally Awning, with the option of a Storm Tie Down kit made possible as the storm buckles are sewn directly onto the awnings 'frame' with heavy duty fittings high on the far left and far right side panels.
There is little to doubt the quality of these awnings; well manufactured, with careful attention to detail and thoughtful design features much as you would expect from a company fast becoming synonymous with quality products.

Why buy a Kampa Rally Air 260 Inflatable awning from a2zcamping.co.uk
After years of development, Kampa Air awnings have revolutionised caravanning. Gone are the traditional metal poles, replaced by strong, high pressure inflatable AirFrame poles. No more struggling with awning frames and trying to find the correct pole, the AirFrame is already attached to the awning for simple, one step set up.
The new Kampa Rally 260 is one of the easiest awning to set up and even easier to take down and pack away. The Rally Air 260 is also incredibly light at only 15.3kg which reduces your overall payload. The Rally Air has no metal or fibreglass poles to damage your caravan only AirPoles which rest against your van with no other attachment.
With the AirFrame already attached you’ll never going to forget or loose your poles, whilst the AirFrame is very rigid it does flex in the wind meaning that you’ll never break or bend a pole again. Simply thread the awning onto the awning rail of your caravan – as the Rally air is incredibly lightweight even sliding the awning onto your caravan is much easier.
Like all Kampa inflatable awnings, it is inflated from a single inflation point as all internal AirPoles are connected using a clever system of valves unique to the Kampa range. All Kampa inflatable awnings are supplied with a high volume hand pump which enables you to inflate the awning in less than 2 minutes and because Kampa use high pressure inflatable AirPoles it’s impossible to over inflate your awning with the supplied pump.
There is very little doubt that Kampa are the market leaders in lightweight inflatable awnings and they are the only inflatable awnings where all the poles are linked together using a patented valve system. On some other brands each of the poles are separate and need to be inflated or pumped up individually. Kampa inflatable awnings need no additional support poles, either inflatable or conventional, whereas other brands require fibreglass or metal poles to provide additional support.
Kampa Air awnings will fit all caravans with an awning rail height* of between 235-250cm and a straight rail length of at least 260cm making it suitable for most UK caravan owners. The Kampa Rally Air range comes complete with oversized carry/storage bags which make them easy to pack away and store. Each awning also includes a suitable draught skirt to prevent draughts coming under your caravan into the awning.
