2017 Outdoor Revolution Movelite Cayman Cacos Driveaway Awning
2017 Outdoor Revolution Movelite Cayman Cacos Driveaway Awning is Outdoor Revolution’s best-selling “Cayman Cacos” and makes a return for 2017 as the ultimate small-family, pole-and-sleeve drive-away. This excellent product sleeps up to six adults (with the optional inner tents), has an integrated canopy and provides a generous living area; all whilst retaining its lightweight properties and ease-of-erection!
The ultra-lightweight, 68-Denier fabric is designed to pack down quickly, easily and into its small carry bag. This product is ideal where weight, pack size and speed are of the essence. The fabric has a contemporary Hex-style print to compliment the product’s simple, immaculate design lines.
The frame is made using four, tough Fibreglass Poles to make assembly a speedy process.
The fabric is exceptionally water-resistant and water will simply bead onto the surface and roll-off. Also, the light-coloured roof material reflects heat to maintain a comfortable temperature inside the awning. The product comes complete with a water-repellent Sewn-In Groundsheet for added protection against the elements.
There are expansive PVC Windows, offering a clear, panoramic view of the outdoors from the comfort and convenience of your awning; helping to bring the outdoors – indoors. All windows have integral Zip-In Curtains which can be rolled back during the day or zipped-in for complete privacy during the night. There is also a Rear-Cowl Access Door to prevent disturbing sleeping guests and increase ease of access to and from the motorhome. The integrated Front Canopy (supported by a tough, Fibreglass Pole) allows for a functional, sheltered “porch” area with added protection against the elements.
The awning comes complete with Pegs, Storm Strap Attachment Points, a Zip-Around Front Door (for added security) and Ventilation Points to help combat condensation by improving air-circulation within the drive-away. A Two or Four-Berth Inner-Tent, a luxurious Snugrug and a Stone Protection Footprint Groundsheet (for added protection against sharp rocks and hard ground) can also be purchased for this product.
This product comes in one other size; the five-poled “Cayman Cacos XT”, offering slightly more capacity and including an integral Six-Berth Inner-Tent.
The awning includes a one-year guarantee against any manufacturing faults.

HOW TO ATTACH TO YOUR VEHICLE
FIGURE OF 8 CLIPPED TO GUTTER / POLE AND CLAMP ON GUTTER
There are a few options for attaching this awning to your vehicle which depends slightly on the type of vehicle. The older vans such as the T2 and T25 with the gutter channel may use just the Figure of 8 and clip this on (depending a little on the condition of the gutter channel). This works to a certain extent but can come unclipped if it gets windy. They can also use a pole and clamp system although this is not a method I would personally recommend as I have seen one end of a pole come off before and then make a big mess of the van as the metal pole clangs against it. Some pole systems use sucker pads which are even more unreliable.
The best option by far is an awning rail. I make bespoke rails for the every vehicle. For the T5, Vito Mk2 and some others with existing bolt holes I can do a bolt on rail. For other vehicles including those with pop top or high top and virtually any other vehicle I can do a one piece chamfered and shaped self fit kit which glues and screws on and comes with everything you need to fit it. These rails are a proper channel which will take the beading of the awning directly if not wishing to drive away or with the use of Figure of 8 and Double sided Kador bead you can drive away with ease whilst giving a quick, easy and the most weatherproof and secure attachment possible. This will not come off if it gets windy. The Self Fit Kit Rail is £64.99 or the Bolt on one is £64.99 or modified for your roof racks £89.99 plus £16.99 postage. I can supply Figure of 8, Double sided Kador bead or Kador Converter Straps (£24.99) for no additional postage.It is recommended to avoid a J rail or Magnetic Kador – they are not very effective and you will almost certainly end up buying twice!
