World debut at the Caravan Salon 2013
August 30th 2013
The long-established Dutch manufacturer of trailer tents presents a world debut at this year’s Caravan Salon. The Sky Wing is a stormproof awning for caravans and motorcaravans which is self-erecting within 90 seconds and automatically adapts to the respective wind conditions. Holtkamper is looking for licensees for the new Sky Wing system.
Erecting the Sky Wing at the camping site is a cinch: at the touch of a button the tent unfolds itself with the help of air pressure and is then connected to the caravan by a zip. Manual erection without air pressure is also possible; simply take it out of the patented bag, stabilize it with the mast – and that’s it. While driving, the Sky Wing can be transported rolled up at the outside of the caravan in a tube storage bag.
The awning adapts its shape dynamically to the particular wind direction and wind force and thus reduces wind resistance to a minimum. “The tent moves like a young tree in the wind and is accordingly stormproof“, says Bert Holtkamp, Managing Director of Holtkamper and developer of the Sky Wing. “Strong wind, a gust of wind or a major storm – nothing can do the Sky Wing any harm“.
Two side walls give plenty of shade even if the sun is low and ensure pleasant temperatures in the awning. This pleasant room climate is supported by the Holtkamper Natur Eco cotton tent fabric– making the Sky Wing the only awning on the market which completely reflects solar radiation. The waterproof groundsheet protects against vermin, mud, rain and draught.
“The exceptional design which opens up the view to the top allows for a perfect view of nature – mountains, lakes or the night sky. This is why we actually go camping“, says Mr Holtkamp.
Holtkamper’s Sky Wing is patented and manufactured in Europe. During the Caravan Salon, Holtkamper is looking for licensees, production and sales partners.
