Does anyone on here have a Sheltapod and if so, how do you rate it?

Hi.

We purchased one of the first models in the initial crowd funding.

We have used it for many camping trips and found it to be great. We had one incident on a windy gale in Norfolk when the canopy ripped but this was replaced free of charge.

It gives great shelter from wind, rain and sun and as promised it keeps the views clear so you can still enjoy them from within the van.

We have used the typical style before the shelter pod and they feel like attaching a limpit to the van.

I would highly recommend it!

We have one as well and have found it useful as additional under cover space - I don't think I'd take it for someone to sleep in for any length of time but its a good porch like addition

Hi.

Been looking for a SMALL awning that I can put up quickly and easily, mainly to store stuff, for occasional guest to sleep, and somewhere to sit out of sun/rain.

I found the Sheltapod online and it looks pretty good.

A couple of questions....
- how heavy is the pack, roughly?
- can one person pitch it ok?

Thanks.

Caroline

Hi,

The sheltapod come in one oversize bag - It weights about 5kgs (have not actually weighed it but its lightweight sheet and poles)

We have a saying - "Awning = divorce in a bag" Its great fun watching a couple trying not to argue in public when erecting an awning!

So my wive and I have decided its a one person job to save on arguments. It is simple to layout and insert the pole on the ground with one person and then peg and pull upright.

The only two person job is pulling the poles out is just easier when taking it down, but you can do this on your own just takes longer.

I would highly recommend one as we brought ours as part of then crowded funded first round it was that good of a design (read the back story about the wonderful lady who designed it)

Thanks Steve

Good to hear confirmation that I will be able to pitch single handed.

Will definitely read your blog.

Hi,

coming to this topic a bit late, but having used a SheltaPod for a couple of years now (we also crowd funded) I would also endorse all that has been said above. We've come through a couple of severe gales with it, so despite its lightness (good feature) it is well designed and robust.

Thank you Tnk

Pretty much decided to go for the grey, Lily is green.

I’m off on first trip of the year next week so will keep an eye out for one on my travels. Be nice to to see one ‘in the flesh’.
