Sleeper - for sun protection you could rename it the UVA

My vote goes for rain being it's main function, as sun getting in wont do as much damage as rain

Of course, with a little nous, one could have the best of both worlds...

The RA, to keep the rain out, and the side walls, to keep the sun out!

Yer see... I'm not as daft as I may appear!

Who do we lobby to get a bedroom inner? I've just spent a weekend in a wee vango tent (cub camp!) which had a fully zipped in inner and I was still plagued by a single mozzie that kept me awake all night. I'm genuinely quite worried about little beasties in the Karsten over the summer holiday. I've bought a double mosquito net but not sure how to attach it plus it's a bit claustrophobic

Normally Karsten charge a lot to stop the press to make something bespoke before you factor in the actual item price, making it prohibitively expensive. You could be talking 1000 for a bespoke bedroom inner.
The only thing I can think is that if a group of people clubbed together to request a bulk order - say over 10-15 350 pod inners, they may consider it at a cost that would be affordable....

Yes....I can see the thought process behind the rain awning name. I guess I have not used the rain awning with the pod only as yet.....no RA connector....remiss I know. Anyhow I had a glass of wine and a cider so a bonus.

Did like The thought of the name UVA though Jim!

As a side thought how well does the FW act as a rain awning when used with king poles?

The other question I had is....would anybody know the depth of the RA connector at its deepest point? Or indeed how far from the tent base does the RA connector and RA protrude?

Thanks
