Romahome Extra Room

I’ve found it difficult to find an awning/tent for our Motorhome, we saw a van with this tent attached, so bought one for ourselves. Just used it for a trip around Scotland and found it just right. Easy to put up with plenty of windows and doors and sturdy.

Very sturdy and spacious easy to put up and great options for fully opening at one end or door and window at opposite end definitely recommended

Excellent pseudo-canpervan awning

Bought this as extra storage and living space to go with a small (T5 sized) campervan. Been really impressed so far. Used for 2 weeks including some gusty and windy days (30ish mph) and has been solid when well pegged out, when others on the campsite have been packing their awnings away. Perfect size for a table and 4 people to eat, tall enough to stand up straight even at 6ft 3. Ok, the fibreglass poles probably wont last forever, same with the groundsheet, but for the price it far exceeds expectations, and much more versatile than drive away awnings that cost 5x as much. Also, if you have a Caddy conversion, you can reverse the barn doors into the large front door, effectively making a drive away awning. Almost works with a T5 in the same way! Highly recommend for van owners!

Great addition

Totally recommend this gazebo. We bought to use with the 2 man blackout tent - it was easy to assemble and kept us dry during a downpour - a great addition.

Sun canopy

How do you get the sun canopy up without tieing it to a tree like the picture as shown.

Great day tent

Bought this day tent last year got around to use it this April when we were parked up on a caravan site for a month, used it to store stuff ie chaired and travel mates etc I put it up on my own and I’m very short so a average height person will have no problems, great day tent and I would buy one of these again if I needed too.

Living room

Square living area with an area of 67.3 sq ft and a maximum height of 80".

Pitching / striking

Traditional pitching and disassembly with poles. Follow the instructions stitched into the product’s cover.

Sun protection

The flysheet fabric has UPF 30 sun protection. Please note: be careful, a significant amount of UV can get in through a simple open door.


3 sides have an opening, to ensure better air flow. Each of the openings is fitted with mosquito protection to prevent insects from getting in.

Wind resistance

We test all our tents in a wind tunnel on a turntable. The goal is to expose each side of our tent to the same wind intensity. Well pitched with the guy ropes properly deployed, this tent remains habitable with a wind of force 6, measured at 35 mph.


We test our living areas to validate their waterproofing. The 1st test is done in the laboratory, 4 hours under 200 liters of water per hour per sqm, the equivalent of tropical rain of 200 mm per hour. The 2nd test is done in the field under real conditions by our teams. This living area is fitted with a polyurethane-coated polyester flysheet measuring 2000 mm. It also has seams that have been waterproofed with heat-sealed strips, and a 4.9 oz/sqm polyethylene groundsheet.

All of our products come with at least a 2-year guarantee when in correct use. Your loyalty card or receipt constitute proof of purchase. During or after the guarantee period, our tents can also be repaired in any of the stores within the Decathlon network.

Poles, pegs

Poles - All of our poles are made from fiberglass and undergo double quality controls. This guarantees some of the best resistance against breakage. Pegs - All of our pegs are made from steel and have a diameter of 6 mm.



Product testing

This is not a tent, we do not recommend sleeping in it at night as there is no double roof to protect against condensation.

Storage instructions

We advise that you air-dry your living area outside, including the underside. You can then store it without any risk of odors or mold developing.
