The Iconic VW T2 Goes Electric
These cost from £1500 now and are not to be confused with cheaper versions which are lighter weight and not as substantial as this awning which you do not need to take down in the wind. It comes with some antiflap rails which you can use without the awning to stop your awning flapping in wind.
This awning has been used for 5 trips, and the only reason it is being sold is that we have had to buy a larger awning with a storage room due to our large dog and bike gear! It is in immaculate condition with no damage to the awning and have shown a picture of this awning being used on the North Wales Coast where it was pretty windy and it did not move at all.
The only thing of note is that the bags are in poor condition. This is due to the aluminium rails which go in one bag which is the original Thule bag which was a bit rubbish! Fairly easy to buy a cheap bag from amazon to fit these in.
Here is the current description
Thule G3 Residence Room is designed for Motorhomes, Caravans & Vans alike. Previously known as the Omnistor Safari Room, this system is much upgraded and improved.
Comprised of an aluminium structure, roof bars both clamp and suspend the side sheets whilst a rubber backed profile seals the gap between the side sheet and the vehicle wall. A brace holds the two bars firmly in place.
This room is also both quick to put up and fast to take down. The biggest advantage over other rooms or tents is the stability in windy conditions as it is not something that needs to be taken down.
Easy to clean PVC material and can be put away wet for convenience. Aired when you get home. Simple washing up liquid solution is all that is needed to make it look new once again.
Ventilation in both side sheets via windows that roll upwards to reveal a mosquito mesh provides added comfort in hot conditions.
