Good Day, hope you can help me. I'm looking to purchase a rally tent for my 2002 Gypsy Regal buy they appear to be few and far between. My question is, will a rally tent from similar sized van, say a Caravette 6 or a Penta fit on the Regal or is there differences in the pole centers?
I await to be educated.

The caravans you mentioned all have pop up roofs.  The only other issue is the length of the caravan body itself.  If that is similar the position of the poles should not be a problem.  

There is a very short middle pole that lifts the roof in the middle of the caravan.  Here the possibility exists that you would have to change the length of the pole.

If you only use the roof part there should not be a problem.  With the possibility on the rally sides that they could be to long or short depending on the  fitment of the roof.

Just using the roof should work.

Thanks, Leon, that is what I thought but having never used anything other than the correct item, wondered if anyone else had done something similar.
