How does it work?

Made from 100% natural canvas, the awning hooks to the awning rail of the van, but the connector section can also be unzipped to create a stand alone tent like the Bell Tent Boutique Touareg tent. Just like traditional bell tents, the Dubpod is quick and easy to pitch, as it utilises just one centre pole.

The Dubpod has a spacious 5m x 4m oblong footprint, and the van connector adds a further 1/2 metre, so there is plenty of room inside for beds and any other ‘luxuries’ that you can’t normally take away with you..

It’s ideal for families who need extra space or groups of friends as it can add sleeping capacity for up to an extra 6 on top of your vans current sleeping configuration. The Dubpod is a hybrid between an awning when it is required to fit your van or it can be used as a stand alone tent.

The most noticeable difference to regular awnings is the feel inside. Because it’s 100% cotton canvas, it is quieter and better insulated than your regular ‘flappy’ polyester awning. In total the awning is 50kg but has a canvas carry bag for poles, tent and pegs so can be separated for transporting.
