The Hydra comes in three sizes (low, mid and high) and is an excellent medium sized motorhome awning that is amazingly easy to use; it can also be used on a caravan. It uses the efficient Air Erect System. The simple and easy to use system makes it extremely easy to inflate and easy to erect, so much so that it can even be done by one person. The addition of the door in the tunnel allows you to enter and exit the awning without walking though the main awning; perfect when you have muddy boots and wet coats. The use of the superb HydraDore SL fabric means that this is extremely lightweight, making it even easier to carry, store, use and erect. It is also quick to dry and U.V. coated to help prevent damage from the sun and prolong the life of the awning. The sewn in, fully tubbed groundsheet is great at keeping the weather out, but with the added peg down doorways, you can also remove those annoying trip hazards when the doors are in use.
Air Erect System (AES) The Air Erect System is an, easy to use, air erect system. Simplified to make it easier to use and less to go wrong, the system uses 4 layers for strength and stability. Layer 1: The internal bladder which is the part that you inflate. Layers 2 and 3: Then we have a dual layer protective cover that has PE and polyester covers bonded together, the PE layer of the cover is also reinforced at the stress points giving it extra strength and stability. Layer 4: Finally we have a sleeve which is sewn into the awning. This not only improves the protection around your air tube, as well as the stability of the awning because the tube is held in position better. The Air Erect System has individual air tubes rather than a joined system which makes each tube extremely easy to pump up. It also makes it easier to deflate as each tube defaults instantly by removing the value making it easier and quicker to deflate as no air gets trapped in the system. The use of separate tubes also gives you security against failure. If there is a failure only one tube is affected. The system is also designed to allow you to fix them on site, so there is no need to ruin your break and send the awning away to be repaired. You simply unzip the sleeve to get to the protective cover. This is then unzipped which gives you access to the bladder itself. This bladder can be removed, repaired using a puncture repair kit (we recommend using a professional repair kit as some cheaper kits have sub-standard glue) and then put back in. It also uses an easy to use single way valve for inflation which is simplicity itself; simply push the pump in and you are ready to go, there are no fiddly values or sockets, sheer simplicity and ease of use.
HydroDore SL Fabric An advanced lightweight 75D with a high performance coating giving a hydrostatic head of 3000mm. which is far and above the 1000mm considered fully waterproof ensuring that your awning will not leak and the material is waterproof. The coating gives the material extra protection against the harmful sun's U.V. rays and extends the life of your awning and gives you a high level of water protection. The material is extremely lightweight making it easy to handle, fold and packs away to a small size. It is fast drying as it does not soak up the rain and is easy to clean.
Anti-Weather System (AWS) The anti-weather system is not one item but a host of improvements and updates that gives the awning better weather protection. There are additional weather panels sewn into the canvas at points where the weather could get in. This panel is P.U. coated on both sides and taped on both sides giving you better weather protection. There is additional guttering on external windows with zips, which add extra protection against the rain. All tie back points or pockets that are sewn in are made from 100% waterproof PVC rather than standard webbing material. Standard material can soak water up and eventually lead to leaks, the waterproof PVC simply does not.
Inner Tent Ready This awning is inner tent ready ready, which means it can gave at least one inner tent fitted inside the awning to give you that sleeping pod / sleeping area. The inner tent is simplicity itself, to fit it all you do is clip the inner tent in place using the toggles on the inner tent and the sewn in toggles points in the awing, they are even colour coded to make it easier. If you don’t want to use the inner tent during the day, you can simply remove it or even just drop it to the floor.
