Kampa reveals latest awnings

Kampa reveals latest awnings

Kampa has revealed a host of new awnings in anticipation of a busy season in 2019.
We took a closer look at some of the highlights at the Tent and Awning Show in Stoneleigh, Warwickshire. Check out the video below to see more.

Among the new additions is a range of caravan awnings called Club Air Pro, which comes in three sizes, all with the option of adding in mesh panels, roof liners or annexes.

Kampa has also introduced two windbreaks with inflatable-tube technology, called Airbreak 3 and 5, designed to create an additional outdoor private space for campers, or an ideal enclosed space for pets.

Another highlight was the Motor Ace Air 400, the first inflatable motorhome awning that Kampa has made with its super-durable All Season fabric. As with many of Kampa’s other products in this market, you can zip in annexes and other accessories to create a truly comfortable additional living space on site. There are four sizes to choose from, all with Kampa’s single inflation point system.

For campervan owners, Kampa’s Motor Rally Air Pro driveaway awnings will be of interest. Especially so the new Motor Rally Air Pro 260, which provides a great amount of versatility to those with a low profile campervan such as a Volkswagen California, or others up to 220cm.

To see more of Kampa’s awnings, be sure to attend the Motorhome and Caravan Show at Birmingham’s NEC.

Our experience of Kampa awnings showed that it was not fit for purpose. Going by posts on various forums I am not alone.

We spent nearly £1100 on an Air Ace. Condensation was a very big issue even if you left the side "doors" open. We also suffered from pooling on the roof and there were issues with quality of stitching but then again these awnings are made in China. It is also very heavy to drag through the awning rail as you have to drag through the whole unit. You could remove the side panels, but they need to be fitted back in before the awning is fully inflated. It takes just as long as erecting a traditional awning and then you have all the guy ropes all over the place.

After one trip away with it we sold the awning and bought a traditional Isabella Magnum coal awning. IMHO it is a lot easier to erect than the air awning which takes a lot of pumping to get to the correct stiffness. Also been a number of complaints of bladders bursting on hot days.
Your choice.

Over 3 years we have had 3 of the 4 tubes split, it is actually the middle sleeve that splits not the actual bladder so it is still usable. Kampa have replaced all 3 under warranty and have given me a spare for the one that is original. No pooling as I push the cross tubes up to tighten the roof and minimum condensation.
