SheltaPod can attach to your vehicle using various different methods. 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 also a 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 4 x five meter 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 use suction clamps (D) (not supplied) that attach to the pole in the pole sleeve. This is suitable for flat roof vehicles. SheltaPod will attach to vehicles as high as 280cm.*Please note we do not sell the attachment equipment but they can be easily found online or at any good camping store.
ATTACHING TO A FIAMMA AWNING
If you are attaching to a 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.

NO CAMPERVAN? NO WORRIES!
SheltaPod can attach to almost any vehicle. The simple canopy design has several attachment methods. For campervan's with multi rails or a gutter rail there is the C channel beading strip or the pole sleeve method.
For SUV's, jeeps and standard vans, we offer three velcro straps which can attach to roof bars or racks. We also include four webbing straps for 'over the top' attachment (with front and rear to stop slippage). And finally there are three gaps in the pole sleeve for attaching suction clamps.
Please note that we DO NOT INCLUDE the attachment equipment, for example the pole for the pole sleeve, 'figure of eight' for C channel and suction clamps.
