How do drive-away awnings connect to my campervan/motorhome?

Kampa drive-away awnings can be connected to vehicles in several ways:

Guy Line Method
  • This is the quickest method.
  • Throw the guy lines, attached to the top corners of the tunnel, over the vehicle and either peg down on the other side or tie to the wheels.
  • Unpeg to drive-away.
Keder Beading Method (optional accessory recommended)
  • Kampa drive-away awnings come with a 6mm keder beading sewn along the length of the rear tunnel.
  • Attach directly to awning rail (if fitted) or channel of cassette awning.
  • Optional drive-away kit required to drive-away:
    6 to 6mm drive-away kit in 3m & 4m lengths.
    6 to 4mm drive-away kit in 3m & 4m lengths can be used for attaching to a Fiamma cassette
  • When using a drive-away kit, remove the figure-of-8 profile to drive-away.
Limpet™ Suction Method (optional accessory required)
  • Utilises Kampa’s Limpet™ Suction Drive-Away Kit.
  • Simply attach the Limpets to a flat, smooth surface on the vehicle and thread the awning keder beading into the figure-of-8 profile.
  • Remove the figure-of-8 profile to drive-away.
Velcro Loops Method
  • For vehicles fitted with roof rails.
  • Attach the Velcro straps, fitted along the top edge of the tunnel, around the roof rail.
  • Undo Velcro to drive-away.
Pole & Clamp Method (optional accessory required)
  • The most secure method for vehicles that have a gutter.
  • Requires gutter to run the length of the awning tunnel.
  • Thread pole into sleeve on tunnel edge.
  • Rest pole in gutter and secure with clamps.
  • Remove clamps and pole from gutter to drive-away.
Magnetic Driveaway Kit Method
  • For vehicles with steel bodywork.
