The Kampa Magnetic Drive-Away Kit is a magnetic connection system designed for attaching a drive-away awning to the roof of a van. This drive away kit can be used on VW vans without an awning rail fitted but need at least a 10cm wide strip of flat roof surface to stay attached so isn't recommended for vans with elevating roofs. For a 100% secure connection we would always recommend fitting an awning rail.
To Connect: 1. Join the magnetic strip to the drive-away awning using the Figure of 8 connecting strips. 2. Lay the magnetic strip out over the flat part of the vehicle roof - secure by attaching guylines (sold separately) to the tabs on the magnetic strip and either tying to the van or pegging down on the opposite side ‘belt and braces’.
To Detach: Loosen any webbing straps/guylines at the front of the awning and untie/remove the pegs securing the magnetic strip in place.
The Kador Connection Strip and one length of Figure of 8 Awning Channel can be easily cut to the exact length of your awning if required.

*Please note: magnetic kits require a completely flat metal surface to magnetise to and can detach in extremely windy conditions – we recommend always using a guylines to secure the kit.
**We do not recommend using this kit with a sun canopy type awning as there is too much tension on the fabric.
