    Hi i,ve a Hymer 660S motorhome with a Omnistor 4000Xl awning fitted, i,m wanting to buy a safari room(second hand) for the awning, i,ve been on to Thule(Belgium) who took over Omnistor and theyve informed me they dont do a safari room that will fit this awning, no one seems to know if a newer model safari room would fit my awning could ayone please advise because this is literally doing my head in ha ha

    I am assuming your awning is 4m wide?. I think some of the fiamma privacy rooms may fit. You probably need the longer depth one (up to 2.85m) So it would be a 4m large Fiamma clip system

    You can give Glenn or Ian a ring on 01-580-883061 and ask them if a Fiamma will fit or give Rose Awnings a ring (They are Omnistore agents in UK) http://www.worldofmotorhomes.com/outside-van/safari-rooms/rose-awnings-omnistor-safari-rooms

    Brilliant! Thanks for your replies,at least i,m on the right track now ha ha! Shirl i had a look at that link you posted,seems ideal and the advert said something about adapters to fit on a Omnistor awning,just goin to make a few more enquiries then i,ll go for it.I tried Rose Awnings and they gave me a price of £822 + delivery,way over my budget(its not cheap this Motorhome lark)!i did ask for some advice too and they seemed a little unhelpful.I will ring the number you gave Johns Cross,for some advice,again many thanks for your replies

    I have a 4000xl on my camper and I thought it was 4 metres, but after checking I've found it is actually 3 metres. I'm also looking for a safari/privacy room to fit it, there does seem to be a few to choose from however its a height issue with my canopy. Its on a Toyota HiAce import and only 185 cm high. The standard height seems to be 225 and above.

    If yours is a standard height Jonjay then you probably want this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Carefree-...ervan_Caravan_Accessories&hash=item41650443a9

    hi Andy thanks for your reply ,i,ve measured my awning and its just over 3.9 metres long,maybe a bit longer with the end caps ,the actual height is 2.5m plus whatever the skirt measures, i think in this case the 4000xl denotes 4M,the nice people on this forum have pointed me in the right direction,at least i know Fiamma safari rooms will fit!its just down to budget really jonjay :thumb:

    Thats strange, need to re measure mine now. Its definately a 4000xl and when i measured it I got 290cm plus the ends.
    The link I posted do a range including a 400cm one that is compatible with Omnistor.

    Hi Andy i,ve had feedback from another forum,and they said that the 4000 doesnt neccessarily denote 4m in length,something to think about mate jonjay

    So it would seem, you would think though that all 4000xl's would be the same length.
