Khyam Motordome Sleeper 380 Quick Erect Driveaway Awning
NEW FOR 2016
UNRIVALLED PITCHING AND STRIKING SPEED WHICH INFLATABLES SIMPLY CANNOT MATCH!!!
The NEW Motordome Sleeper 380 incorporates all the original standard features of the current Sleeper. However the new floorplan layout offers a substantially increased living area whilst still maintaining an acceptable and economical pitch footprint. Seven, generously sized panoramic windows surround the central living area to create a welcoming environment ideal for family dining or simply relaxing after a great day outside.
Campervan or Caravan compatible, the Motordome™ Sleeper 380 drive away awning creates extra living or stand alone storage space, as well as generous 4 berth sleeping accomodation
The Sleeper 380 has a very generous footprint of 3.00 x 5.55m. The main front door which doubles as a sun canopy (Canopy poles included) is positioned parallel to the vehicle, offering complete versatility, wherever you pitch. Built using the unique Rapidex pole system, this Motor-Dome erects in seconds and pitches in minutes. Ideal for a whole range of Campervans and Campervan size vehicles including T25’s, T4’s & T5 California, as well as other similar sized vehicles including the Mazda Bongo and Toyota Hiace.
> Weather Weave AquaStop™ 150 Fabric
The Weather Weave Aquastop 150 fabric has been specifcally
developed for use on the Khyam Motordome range
of Driveaway awnings. Using the very best yarns available, the
weather weave process is implemented to create a 150 Denier
Ripstop fabric, offering excellent tensile strength.
The introduction of evenly spaced high tensile yarns during the
weaving process creates a RipStop grid adding strength and durabilty.
The weaving and dyeing processes are followed by applying three
Layers of polyurethane coating which enhance colour fastness
and waterproof qualities of this exceptional fabric.
The Comfort Plus feature offers added headroom at
the main door ways of the awning allowing easier and
more comfortable access in and out of the awning.
The Comfort Plus feature also enhances Living space and Bedroom
Areas giving a greater Home from Home feel.
> EcoPitch™ Design
All Khyam Motordome driveaway awnings follow the
EcoPitch standard. EcoPitch is a standard by which all the features of the awning are both ergonomically and strategically positioned to offer maximum user space and comfort for a minimum pitch space.
> Vehicle Connection Tunnel with Dual Doorway Access
Fully zipped doorways on each side of the vehicle connection tunnel provides additional access in and out of the awning.
> Khyam Tailored Vehicle Connection Tunnel:-
(Design Registration 4029632)
All Khyam Motordome connection tunnels allow the sliding door of your campervan, panelvan conversion or Motorhome to open fully within the confines of the connection tunnel(*).
No need to move fabric out of the way when opening the door.
Uniquely shaped and tailored return panels on each side of the connection tunnel fit snuggly against the side of your camper, pegging securely into place via fully adjustable webbing pegging loops.

HOW TO ATTACH TO YOUR VEHICLE
FIGURE OF 8 CLIPPED TO GUTTER (Figure of 8 included) / 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.
TYING OVER THE TOP
On all vehicles except those with high tops or pop tops you can tie the awning over the top with the use of the Figure of 8 and Kador Converter which is a beading with straps sewn to it. This works relatively well however can scuff the paintwork (although some pipe lagging can help). It can also make some noise as the straps tap and if the weather is coming over the top of the vehicle can flap and allow water and wind in more easily.
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 T2, T25, T4, T5 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 £59.99 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 (£4.50 each – generally need 4 pieces), Double sided Kador bead (£22.99.00 for 3m) 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!
FIAMMA OR OMNISTOR WINDOUT AWNINGS
These have a channel similar to that described above integrated within the housing cassette of the windout awning. The Fiamma one takes a 4mm beading, whilst Omnistor takes a 5mm beading. Therefore with the use of the correct Kador Bead which I can supply and Figure of 8, the windout awning can be used as an awning rail. It should be noted that because this channel is not completely flush to the van, it will pull the sides of the awning away from the van as they get higher near the windout awning. You may also have a gap behind the cassette which will still let water drip down between the van and the cassette which would be overcome if you had an awning rail mounted directly to the van, although a little gutter is also available for both of these windout awnings which will also help to alleviate this issue.
