Hi everyone. Some advice please. I want to extent the canopy of my tent, i.e. what I would call the "porch" area. Do I simply ask the vendor for an extension with no sides? I think the extension just zips onto the front edge of the existing canopy.
What then happens to the lines that anchored the existing canopy's poles? Are they still used but just underneath the canopy? Please can someone explain how, once the extension is attached how does one anchor the poles which are now under the canopy?

Hi
All the roofs and extensions are the same size (as per model) and zip on which allows the side panels to fit as standard.The roof extensions work exactly as the tent does for erecting and securing.regards

Anthony are you saying that on the edge of the old canopy, where the extension now zips on, there will be no poles? Or those poles now simply will have no guy lines seeing as they are now under the extended canopy?

Het jy nie 'n gewone Rally nie ?  Want hy kan jy ook voor aan die karavaan se hoof tent aan zip.

Dink nie ek het nie. Maar die punt is ek wil die gewone tent kamer teen aan die karavaan behou . Ek wil net die afdak voor die tent verleng. Hoop dit maak sin

Ek wonder self oor die goed, al het ek 'n regal. Ek het al rond gekyk, lyk of hulle daai aan zip patio 'n "extention awning" noem. Die Campworlds het 'n boek met al die tente in, so laat hulle vir jou kyk.
Ek sukkel self om 'n reguit antwoord uit die Campworld uit te kry oor of hulle nou die extension kan kry of nie, maar dit lyk vir my die extension is net 'n rally tent met 'n zip aan gewerk, so ek sal dalk net kyk of ek iemand kan kry om 'n zip aan te sit op die rally way ek klaar het.
Dit lyk my die rally se pale druk in die 4way links in op die entertainment van die tent, so in plaas van daai kort paaltjies. Sodoende kan jy die rally styf trek met sy verstelbare pale, en toue. As ek heeltemal verkeerd is en iemand weet beter hoe die spulletjie werk laat my/ons weet.

Ek het my rally en my tent voor n zip laat aan werk, dit is soos jy se die rally pale kom in die 4way links van die tent. Alles span lekker styf en werk vir my baie goed. Ek het ook die L shape van die tent uit gehaal.

O nou maak wat ek gesien het meer sin. Op Eiland 'n gypsey regal blue gesien wat nie l-shape is nie, maar die voorkant loop regdeur, het gedink jy kon dalk die tent so koop. Dié ou het dit seker ook laat aanpas.
Wat sou dit rofweg kos om die zip aan te werk?

Hi Francois
I have a penta which has the standard tent attach to caravan with the verandah.I purchased the tent extension which zips onto the front of the main tent and comes with poles and the verandah roof zips onto the front of the extension using its poles as normal.The side panels are uniform in size to fit.
Your best bet is to go to a campworld dealer and tell them what you want and order.You will need to look on the side of your tent and give them the details that are on a label sewn onto the panel to help with the matchup of the extension.

Chris E as ek reg onthou het dit my R1200.00 gekos om tent aan te pas en zips te laat aan werk.

Die toue. ??
I.p.v. dubbel tou, een na die kant en een na vore.. sit nou net die een na die kant aan.
Die canopy gedeelte. ??
As hy dieselfde wydte as die tent is... 2.5 meter dan vervang jy die swart connecters. Met een op elke punt met een wat nog n oog het na vore ( canopy kant) sodat jy dan extra horisontale pale kan bysit. Die nuwer generasie groot waens het vyf horisontale pale. Oueres net drie. Dws. Vyf of drie connecters moet verander of vervang word en die bestaandes word na die punt van die canopy verskuif met al die nodige pale extea.
As hy die canopy het met slegs + - een meter dans dit nie nodig vir horisontale pale na vore nie. Dan span jy slegs die canopy-dak styf met net vertikale pale op die punte en twee lyne op die hoeke... een vorentoe en een kant toe. Trek die guy-lyn styf met die dogbone en die "kort canopy" sal dan genoeg span. L.W. maak dan die canopy se vertikale pale effe korter, + - 50 mm sodat die canpy effe afdraand loop vir moontlike water wat mag opdam om makliker af te loop.

Hoop jy verstaan, so nie, kom terug met jou vrese en ons sal nog n keer probeer verduidelik.

Where can I buy this tent extension which I have requested for when I started this discussion? I have now sent 2 emails and made 2 phone calls to Discovery caravan and outdoor in Waterkloofridge, Pretoria and no one from there bothers to respond.

Hi Francois
Is that dealer a campworld outlet? If no joy from them try another dealer that is a campworld outlet and you will have more joy i am sure.If they do not have your tent in stock they will have to order it from Pinetown where they are manufactured , that is why I said you must supply the details on that tag to match. What is the colour of your tent?
regards

Where can I buy this tent extension which I have requested for when I started this discussion? I have now sent 2 emails and made 2 phone calls to Discovery caravan and outdoor in Waterkloofridge, Pretoria and no one from there bothers to respond.

I gave up on Discovery Outdoor and Caravan - asked them to get me stuff which they didnt had in stock at the time - thats about 2 years ago and have never heard from them.  Even after I went there to enquire.

Since then Ive mostly dealt with Pretoria Caravans and Kempton Caravans.  Loftus, though a bit of a drive seems to be good as well.

Alloutdoors in Centurion also seems to be good if you want a custom made solution

Nie in pta nie, maar jy kan canvas and aluminium concepts ook probeer. Sunseeker in alberton het my na hulle verwys. Hulle is in Edenvale, dis so te sê in pretoria ;-) . Kannie dink dat enige vervaardiger in Gauteng 'n probleem sal hê om af te lewer in Pretoria nie.

Weet nie verseker nie, maar ek dink comet caravans is ook groot op tente, ons het karavaan gekoop op klerksdorp en ek dink hulle het die tent by comet laat "check", lyk of klerksdorp die hele dak tweedehands gekry het by comet. Campworld het maar die netwerk, so jy sal waarskynlik regkom by wie ook al in pretoria deel is van Campworld.

Between Loftus, Kennis and Comet Caravans I always got what I wanted.

Give them a try.
