Love it

We love this awning! Easy to assemble and pack away & spacious. Good price too. We haven’t had any bother with rain or wind like the previous comments, I suspect these people haven’t put it up correctly - I live in Scotland and the weather here is awful but no issues at all. The only downfalls I would say are the gaps between the floor sheet and awning, it would be good if these were Velcro the whole way across - but again, never had issues with it letting in rain. And it would be good to have windows on all side rather than just the one.

Ripped on first use and decathlon won’t replace

I bought this product in June and returned after just one week of use in August, due to the roof of the awning developing 3 small stress tears. Upon taking it into the Eastlands Manchester shop, the manager Priyash said he believes that the tears are not manufacturer defects as the awning has a small dirty marks on the outside near to just one of the tears (not the other 3 though). I tried to explain that awnings get dirty in the course of usage, not least due to needing to being laid out on the floor, however he was having none of it. Having spent nearly £4k at Decathlon in the last 6 months, they have managed to lose a previously loyal customer.

Rubbish rubbish rubbish

Absolutely rubbish when using as a connect to a tent. We bought to connect to our fresh and black 4.2XL Airbeam and spent the week mopping up rain, catching insects and sitting in the freezing wind due to the huge gap in between the side of the awning and the tent. connect is the exact opposite of what this does!! When I tried to call and request a refund I got told I can’t return it just because of my opinion!!! WHAT! We have been decathlon customers for a long time and have a ton of their exercise and camping gear and we are so so disappointed in this and the customer service. Just don’t bother! Quechua got this 100% wrong.

Excellent piece of kit

This is a thoughtfully designed tent/awning/shelter. It is very easy to unpack and assemble. You do need to purchase an air pump as this is not included in the pack. I’m removing from the back I would suggest having an under layer groundsheet to protect the base of the shelter. Ensure that it is spread out ground sheet down, break down the corners, inflate, peg down guy ropes, in the ridge bars and you’re done. Packing away takes a little more effort as one needs to roll around on the tubes to deflate if your pump doesn’t have a deflate mode.

Perfect - but make sure you inflate correctly!

I bought this awning with some hesitancy after reading reviews about it collapsing in the rain. Living in Cornwall we get a fair bit of the wet stuff at short notice, plus a lot of strong sea winds. We've been using the awning since last summer and it's been fantastic in all weathers You do need to make sure you have it inflated to the absolute top pressure (think it's 5) and the internal strut bars extended to their max on the marked arrows to keep the roof secure and avoid it collapsing in the rain. If you stick to that simple bit of advice you will probably fine. Just been sat in a thunderstorm with torrential rain and there was ZERO pooling of rain on the roof. A really good and affordable bit of kit that goes up in about 5 mins.

Excellent, just not in the rain

We used this several times last summer, on breaks with our VW Camper. It was absolutely excellent - easy to erect and dismantle, high quality, stable and secure. Not so lucky with weather this year, rain on last two trips - completely useless, roof collapsed completely in rain and I can’t see a way to remedy. Won’t use on future trips, unless guarantee of dry weather. A shame such a fantastic tent is ruined by an obvious design flaw. Decathlon - please find a fix / retrofit for existing customers.

Unfit as an awning for campervan

Not fit for UK weather and is basically a glorified gazebo. Yes it's a third of the price of some awnings, but it's definitely not worth the money for what it does. Good: Quick to inflate, reasonably good size Bad: * Unstable - needs extra support pole for ceiling and side guide ropes to secure in winds, as constantly leaning and Unstable. * Not waterproof! This Awning leaks in anything but a drizzle of fine rain. Water collects in top due to lack of extra support pillar. * Awning to van side is problematic. There needs to be a zip door once the Awning is stretched over the van, otherwiotherwise you constantly have to take off the van and zip up at night.

Still going strong!

We bought this tent just over a year ago and have used it on several holidays, we just used it on a weekend in the Lake District which prompted me to leave this review. The tent experienced some serious rain/wind this weekend and we have no problems at all with the tent. The ground sheet can be removed in a matter of seconds which makes it really easy to clean.

Excellent product

Really easy to put up, really easy to take down required no re-inflation in the 4 days it was up. Roomy, attached to my odd van quite easily.

Very disappointed

This is about as useful as a ash tray on a motorbike. To say I am less than impressed is an understatement. When we drive away the thing has collapsed on our return. When we get up in the morning its all but collapsed. Absolute rubbish

Great drive away awning.

Easy to put up and take down. Plenty of space for all your camping gear. And no droughts around the edges as the inflatable frame is connected to the ground sheet.

Driveway awning

Great bit of kit stood up to the biggest storms in Dorset for 20 years! Easy to assemble and dismantle and great to use!

Got a good test!

Just returned from a camp site near Hadrians Wall. The shelter was, at times, subjected to torrential rain with no pooling of rainwater. As long as you put enough tension on the bars between the beams the water will run off. It was also on the receiving end of 30 - 40 Mph winds and it survived. I used Delta ground anchor pegs on the guylines though, not the ones that came with the shelter I now have confidence in the shelter for summer use, especially after reading some of the other reviews.

Použítí Air Seconds Base Connect s VW Multivan

S ohledem na popsané rozměry jsem si tento stan vybral k zadním dveřím Multivanu. Při stavbě a zkoušení jsem narazil na jeden podstatný problém a to ten, že zadní, výklopné dveře narazí při otevření do horních vnitřních výztuh. Vzhledem k tomu, že se tak děje při každém otevření dveří a to tak, že dveře stan nadzvedávají, rozhodl jsem se stan vrátit. Navíc mi vadila velikost otvoru u auta. Otvor je zbytečně velký. Chybí zde bočnice, kterými by se vykryl vzniklý otvor mezi autem a zbytkem přístřešku. Ztrácíte tím soukromí a navíc do stanu bude pršet.

Wind resistance

We test all our living rooms in a wind tunnel on a turntable. The goal is to expose each side of our living room to the same wind intensity. Properly pitched, with the guy ropes deployed, this living room remains habitable in wind speed 7, measured at 35 mph. Feel free to re-inflate your inflatable poles regularly during your stay at the campsite (7 PSI).


We test our living rooms to validate their waterproofing. The 1st test is done in the laboratory, 4 hours under 200 liters of water per hour per m², 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 room is fitted with a polyurethane-coated polyester flysheet measuring 2,000 mm. It also has seams that have been waterproofed with heat-sealed strips, and a 4.9 oz/m² polyethylene groundsheet.
