    Spotted this interesting awning on Facebook http://www.sheltapodcampervanawnings.co.uk/ a while ago & it is now launched on on Kickstarter. Definitely a lot of interest from FB followers & demand for this in various colours - orange is the first one that will be available & if it sells then blue & green will follow & then possibly grey. Thought this might be of interest to Funsters with campervans:

    Seen many comments on FB about this being a great idea, then someone slated it regarding price and the quality...
    I have no idea either way so any interest do your research.. (y)

    Can it be used as a drive away awning or does it rely upon attachment to vehicle to keep it up.

    Understand that it can be used as a driveaway awning but not getting enough take up on Kickstarter so may not go into production :( It seems to be filling a gap in the campervan market but the sales targets (80k :confused:) are very high - Sunncamp only need 500 orders to bring a new awning design to market.
    Hopefully if Julie doesn't manage to secure enough funding this way then she will find another way even if the terms are different.

    Thinking about it it would be too small for a Hymer or similar?

    We like the design & suggested a taller motorhome height version but currently it is designed for campervan height. Probably best to message & check if it might work. We also suggested a more neutral colour like grey for wider appeal but think the VW market is the initial target.
