Awning Attachment

sheltaPod can fit onto your vehicle using several different methods.

sheltaPod will attach to almost any vehicle using the four x (5 mtr long) webbing straps that are included in the bag. Two straps go 'over the top' of the vehicle roof and are pegged into the ground on the opposite side. The other two straps peg down to the front and rear of the vehicle to stop the canopy from slipping from side to side. This method can be combined with attaching the three velcro straps to the roof bars for extra strength and stability.



















For older campervans there is the gutter rail option (A) where a pole slides into the pole sleeve and then clamps securely inside the gutter (please note that the pole and clamps are not supplied with sheltaPod).

For modern vans with an awning rail, there is a 6mm bending strip that threads into the C channel (B).

If you want to drive away then you also need a Kador strip and figure of eight which can been seen in the photo but does not come with sheltaPod. However we do supply the four webbing straps for 'over the top' attachment (C).

There's also three velcro straps that can attach to roof bars/racks. This option is suitable for SUVs. And finally you can also use suction clamps (D) (not supplied) that attach to the pole in the pole sleeve. This is suitable for flat roof vehicles however be wary using them on the side because they can slip when it rains.

If you are attaching to a Fiamma type roll out awning then please check the diameter of the C channel. sheltaPod uses 6mm beading. If your C channel is 4mm then you will need to separately purchase a 4mm to 6mm Kador conversion strip.


sheltaPod will attach to vehicles as high as 280cm
