SheltaPod Campervan & Vehicle Awning

The SheltaPod is a campervan and vehicle awning that can be set up as a sun canopy, half dome shelter, 4-person sleeping tent and a drive-away awning. There's nothing quite like SheltaPod's unique design and versatility, and it's a multi-functional piece of kit that can be used with any vehicle (up to a height of 2.8m)

It's lightweight, durable, easy to set up and offers a stress-free 4-in-1 camping solution. Watch the video below for a quick introduction

What is a SheltaPod?

SheltaPod is unique as it can be configured as a simple sun canopy and a half dome tent. This concertina effect can be done easy in three stages so the user can decide on how much cover they want. It only takes a moment to roll up the fabric and fix in place with hooks. There are extra guy lines to hold it in place.

SheltaPod is not just for Campervans!

SheltaPod can attach to any vehicle up to a height of 2.8m using five different attachment methods.
  • For campervans with multi rails there is the C channel beading strip
  • For vans with a gutter rail you can use the pole sleeve method.
  • Three velcro straps to attach to roof bars or racks.
  • 4 x 5m webbing straps (included) for 'over the top' attachment for any vehicle.
  • There are three gaps in the pole sleeve for attaching suction clamps.
(Additional fixings are not included in the bag, what is included is a front door panel, privacy panels, separate groundsheet for the rainfly, window shades, all poles pegs and guylines. There are options to buy with or without the inner tent).

Sleeping in a SheltaPod

The inner tent has an integrated bath-tub style groundsheet, two doors, one mesh and the other fabric. Both have central zips and tiebacks. It also has two mesh window panels with curtains, one on the top for a view of the stars and the other at the back. This can provide better ventilation in hot climates. It also gives campers a view out when the rainfly is rolled up - the perfect place to sit if there are lots of insects around!

If you sleep inside your vehicle, the front door panel and groundsheet will keep belongings dry and out of sight.

Use as a Driveaway Awning

SheltaPod can also be used as a drive-away awning so if you want to drive away for the day and keep your pitch, simply detach the SheltaPod and mark out the place of your tyres so you can reposition your vehicle and reattach on your return.

Where can I get them From?

SheltaPod was created in 2015 by Founder, Julie Ritson who had been a keen camper for many years but couldn’t find an awning that was quick and easy to put up single-handed for one or two overnight stays.

Since then SheltaPod has gone from strength to strength, new colours have been introduced and added extras have been included in the bag such as the privacy panels, curtain shades and groundsheet. The blackout canopy was also released and proved to be a popular accessory with customers.

The SheltaPod currently has a Winter sale with up to 25% off, RRP £299, and are available direct from the SheltaPod website

Looks like a great idea, but how will it stand up to the British summer storms.
