Sorry cant help you with what you have. However if I were to be looking to add something to the one fitted to my van. I would firstly google it...check it actual length also height of legs fully extended, and height when legs retracted to a height to suit you. That would help find out sizes of of any zip ins you miht need. Plus whatever is googled these days will always find more info on the product than you ever thought you would need. Hope this helps.

I think the 4000xl is a model number which come in different widths as this is the system used by Omnistor, the fact that yours is 4m long is a coincidence. We have an Omnistor 5000 which is 4m wide.  We have a Safari Residence for it.  The question I would ask is do you really want a safari room?  If you are going to Spain/Portugal for the winter and staying in one place for months I would say they are second to none.  However, they weigh "a ton", take a very long time to errect and you will need steps to get the tensioning right where the sides clamp to the awning.

We never use ours "on the move" and I have never met anyone who does.

Regards,

Carl
