Choosing an annexe can hinder or help your trip so it’s essential to choose wisely. It’s all about convenience and comfort.
Let's pop a few misconceptions about inflatable technology:
It is very easy to attach the Orbit Air Annexe to the caravan or camper trailer thanks to the Sail Track, which is included in the Orbit Air Annexe bag. The installation of the Sail Track is a simple procedure that doesn't require pop rivets, screws or drilling into the caravan and it allows owners to customise the annexe installation to suit everyone's needs.View Sail Track Installation
When the Sail Track is attached, easily slide in the annexe to the Sail Track - thread the annexe's beading through the Sail track on the caravan to the desired position.
Inflatable annexes come as a single unit that you roll out the boot of your car, plug in a pump and in a matter of minutes you have a robust free standing structure to peg out and you're done.
Traditional annexes usually take longer to assemble and are hard to pitch whereas Air annexes can be easily pitched by anyone with no extra help.
Air annexes are light weight easy to pitch, handle and transport. Traditional pole annexes require one or more heavy bags containing the steel poles, compared to the Orbit® Air Annexe single bag.
Air annexes use air beam technology that provides strong structural support that can withstand bad weather conditions. Orbit® Air Annexes have been developed and tested specifically for the Australian outdoors. Air beams flex with the wind and absorb more pressure than pole annexes, even if flattened to the floor. Solid poles will bend and break, potentially ripping tent fabric and causing a lot of damage.
Inflatabe air annexes offer a large spacial footprint. They come in a variety of sizes to suit anyone’s needs. They are less bulky and more compact than traditional pole annexes. The small and lightweight packaging that they are provided in, is easy to fit into smaller spaces because you don’t have to wrestle with bulky poles.
Almost all camping repairs can be done yourself. Some tricky repairs like poles or fabrics can be taken to a supplier, but with an air annexe you would simply replace an inner tube or valve.
