Win an amazing sheltaPod worth £265 in our latest competition. It’s easy to enter and you could be driving off for your summer holidays with a multipurpose shelter that’s awning, sun canopy and half-dome tent you can sleep in, all rolled into one.
“sheltaPod is the most versatile and cool campervan awning around,” says Julie Ritson, who used to wield a news camera and is now the successful inventor and entrepreneur behind sheltaPod.
“Campervan awnings are traditionally a tunnel tent style that attaches to the side of the van. But for many campers they can be hard work to set up and bulky to carry around” says Julie. “They take up too much space, especially in a small campervan.
“When I bought my first campervan, I quickly learnt that big bulky awnings blocked my views and took too long to pitch if I was only camping for one or two nights. But I needed some outside shelter for cooking/dining, an extra bedroom for family and friends and storage space. When I couldn’t find what I wanted, I bought some waterproof material, got out my mum’s old sewing machine and made the first prototype in my bedroom. That early prototype gave birth to several factory prototypes. A year later sheltaPod was born.”
sheltaPod is unique because it works like a concertina to become a simple sunshade to a full half-dome tent. The outer flysheet provides a sheltered area for cooking and eating, then a separate inner tent can clip in for extra sleeping space. If you just want storage without using the inner tent, there’s a separate front panel with zip for easy access and a separate groundsheet. Included in the bag is the inner tent with integrated ground sheet, front door panel, side ‘privacy’ panels, separate groundsheet for the rainfly and two window shades.
And all of that comes in a bag just 88x24x22 with a weight of 11.2kg.
“I think the cool shape, bright colours and big skylight windows is what makes sheltaPod really standout from the crowd,” adds Julie. “We have customers attaching sheltaPod to teardrop caravans, trailers in the USA, tuk tuks in Sri Lanka, Jeeps and even Mini Coopers,” says Julie.
