New for 2018 and at last a tailgate awning using an Airframe. Up to now there has only been a few poled air awnings.
Based on the Moveairlite Classic which has been popular in the Outdoor Revolution range for a few years.
The Movelite T1 Tail should fit the majority of Van Based conversion with a fixing height of 180cm-240cm. Tailgate awnings are designed with longer tunnels so you can comfortably open your vans tailgate or rear barn doors withing the tunnel section of the awning. They generally attach tot he vehicle by just lipping the tunnel over the vehicle and holding it in place with straps or guylines. Remember with any driveaway awning the awning has a front and back door so can be sealed against the weather, the tunnel section is therefore only a sheltered entrance.
The Movelite T1 tail features Outdoor Revolutions 250HD Double Rip-Stop. Endurance Fabric a well proven fabric that also has a UV coating to ensure a long life. It also has a single inflation Tube system, with Outdoor Revolutions Lifetime warranty on the air frame (usual terms & Conditions apply). They are the only manufacturer to fit a pressure relief valve in the Air Beams, you cannot over inflate and importantly when the Pressure in the tubes increases on a sunny day, we do sometimes get them, the tube will automaticity release some air. This system from our experience works well and this is why they are confidant to give a lifetime warranty on the Air frame.
A New feature on the Movelite T1 in all versions including the T1 Tail is the inclusion of some Telescopic Steel Roof Poles to Further Support & Uphold the Awning Through the Roof. In previous years we felt the roof line never sat looking neat, so this is a long overdue improvement.
The Awning features a zip in groundsheet, with the option of purchasing a breathable Zip in groundsheet, for sites that insist on Breathable Groundsheet. There is the option to add 1 or 2 optional Matching bedroom annexes to make if a very flexible awning.
A nice awning that should find a good market, especially as there is no real competition. We believe the only other Air tailgate awning on the market is the new Kampa Tailgater Air which is more suited to the tailgates on MPV s and 4 WD's
