This is with my Kyham, which is up in 10mins. I have just bought a Vango Idris 2 air beam so have not used it yet

We love it. Not hard to set up and we use a kador strip and figure 8 with it. Yes to awning but can also be used with straps over the roof
Agree 100% with Max-Felix. Very reluctant to use our Kampa Air Beam awning because of all the faffing around especially in the wet. Considering a standalone pop-up tent for 'stuff'. Want the freedom to drive away easily.So we've just returned from our very first trip with our T6 Beach. Learned loads even tho it was only 2 nights away but we knew this would be the case and have already started planning for this weekend.
Our biggest requirement is for an awning, 2 adults plus a 1 year old means we need some space to keep car seats and buggies etc. won't be sleeping in it but will be using it for a drink or 2 in the evening once our little girl is sleeping. So with this in mind, Show us your awing setup, lets see what everyones using and what works and what doesn't.
In your picture it looks as if you have installed a Velux window in the roof. That seems pretty ambitious.
It was installed by VW and they pinky swore that there would be no corrosion issues. They even gave me a direct email if there were any issues, it’s www.Ur aving a larf.ComIn your picture it looks as if you have installed a Velux window in the roof. That seems pretty ambitious.
Thanks for the tour of your set-up in Devon. Our SheltaPod has just arrived and we are really looking forward to using it.We love it. Not hard to set up and we use a kador strip and figure 8 with it. Yes to awning but can also be used with straps over the roof
Yes I’m currently in Austria and it’s good. It has taken a few pitches to get it right. I used a Kyham awning for 4 years so blowing things up seemed strange. There are 3 of us and we can get table and three chairs in. The area between the van and awning is larger than the kyham so you have to utilise it. By the way I bought mine on a JK 15% day and got it for about £330 ish if I remember
