Kampa Air Pro 400

Hi,

We have just purchased a Kampa Air Pro 400 to go with our Auto-Trail Scout, it fits into the awning rail on the wind out awning.

Due to lockdown we have not used it however we have tried it on the drive and looks great, we did however notice that the outer part of the wind out awning (where the Kampa awning fits) was twisting up when the Air Awning was inflated, has anyone else had this experience with there Air awning?

Also does anyone have any ideas how to seal between the Motorhome and the wind out awning, on the 2018 Scout there is a gap of around 12mm where water would get into the awning in bad weather?

Sorry your post seems to have been missed brada and welcome to the forum.

Friends had what I think was the same as yours so I've sent a query.

If You meant The actual awning where it is bolted onto the MH Brady

You can purchase a strip that seals between the awning attachment and the van and prevents any water ingress

I donít recall our kampa Awning causing any twisting when inflated

Iím assuming you got the correct height awning , Iím sure you know there is two heights

Hi Sandra,

Thanks for the reply, I will look to see if I can find the strip to seal the back of the awning.

Regarding the height the our motorhome was smack in-between the XL and the XXL height range, the retail advised us to go with the XXL for when the we may be on a sloped pitch using the levelling ramps. It could be that our Thule awing is flush with the van side that causes it to twist upwards slightly, not sure hence the ask, guess we need to keep our eye on it to make sure that it does not damage the frame.

Itís easy found and easy put on Brady

The biggest problem we found was sealing the sides to the van

Somewhere there is a thread on here wherE

individuals used ingenious methods

Search Kampa awning

I donít know how to find it, others may

Does that strip go the length of the awning mounted on the MH, and ABOVE it?

I get a lot of debris collecting there n then dripping dirty streaks down the side of the van.

Yep it does , it seals between the MH and the awning, slips into the gap

We no longer have water dripping down

On the rare occasions we attach shadow to the wheel He doesnít get wet

But ours is the fiamma , I'm sure other Makes must have the same sealing strip

I don't think I've water coming down the wall UNDER the awning - it's the water that comes down from either end of the awning rail where it's fitted to the MH. Because dirt gets trapped there the water that runs down at the ends leaves dirty streaks.

Any idea what the strip is called Sandra?
