    I'm contemplating purchasing a Kampa Motor Rally Pro Air awning for our AT Tracker, for a little extra bung it space and somewhere to exile wet dogs to when required. Has anyone got any experience/feedback on said awning? Are they worth the considerable coin over the non-Air versions with poles?

    Also, it seems in 2014 there may have been material options of 150D and 300D Weathershield, whereas in 2015 there's only 300D. Is the lighter material too fragile/not weather proof enough leading to this change, or is this just to simplify manufacturing/supply chains etc?

    Thanks for any pointers.

    Hi, a lot will be decided by how close the top of your hab. door is to the (canopy) awning, as you may find
    .
    the air tubes do not allow it to open fully.

    Cheers, Dave(y)

    as above, but also be aware that the lower air tubes are supposed to rest on the floor so the height from rail to floor compared to the awning is important. also can be a bit odd on slopping ground.

    we considered one but i could not see how i could get a good fit and that would really irritate me at the price they are.

    we have the 390XL, extra height, great fit, easy to put up

    BUT

    We do have an issue where the 'poles' in the corners distort much more easily that we would have liked, but it still works well enough, Kampa have tried to help and were willing but not a lot of use

    Biggest problem we have would apply to any awning, when attached to the wind out awning there is a lot of weight that needs to be wound back in, I am convinced we have slightly bent the front rail of our Omnistor making it hard to put away fully

    Will I buy another when needed, not sure

    Don't they explode or deflate or something.
