Kyham sun canopy

Discussion in 'Camping Accessories' started by Vwwesty, Aug 12, 2011.

  1. I recently purchased this sun canopy for our trip to Portugal in the van. Originally I wanted something like a fiamma f45 wind out awning but decided against it due to the weight of it and also the price was a little bit steep (
  2. As an alternative, if you're handy with a sewing machine...

    Decathlon do a 'Tarp' for £25, complete with 2 poles. If you can sew a strip of awning beading (think we paid 80p per m) down one side, then you're sorted. Attach it with figure8 strips and sorted. It won't be as rigid as the Khyam, expect pooling in heavy rain, but it does the job.
    Shade and shelter with the bonus of being able to use it as a tarp on other trips (canoe/motorbike in our case)
    I'll post pics and review the OH's handiwork at some point.
  3. Thanks guys some good ideas there. (something else to add to my list!)
