Hi. We've just had our first week of camping with our 10 year old Albatros with varioluifel attached, and although we didn't experience heavy rain we did wonder if we'd have a problem with water leaking through the opening where the front canopy poles meet the varioluifel. We have our kitchen set up under this so want to avoid any potential problems. Has anyone had this issue, and if so, how was it resolved? I was thinking of trying to buy some large raincaps to go over the top of the poles directly from De Waard. Does anyone know if these are available, or perhaps someone has camped in heavy rain and hasn't found the canopy pole hole to be a problem?

There are special bigger raincaps. Made of the same material as the groundsheet , with a hole in the middle. Afbeelding

Before they were sold, I used a plastic round cover of a biscuitstin:

Just a hole in the middle and it does the job.

Didn't know these were available. But you will need them. Today we returned from a 2.5 week stay in the French Pyrenees (with the Lepelaar, visdief for the stops along the way). The second night it was raining cats and dogs and the water came through the small hole between tent canopy and vario on one side. (Our plot was sloped a little to the left, viewed from inside). I fixed it with a piece of duct tape (double-layer, taped to itself, so it had no sticky sides) and put it under the tent canopy, over the vario and side wing, like the genuine product. Problem solved.

Never knew these small covers existed, will get myself a pair too.

best,

marcelr

Hi All

Can you advise me where I can buy these rain caps from the UK?

I've just returned from a wet weekend with our Albatros and these would have been great

These are not quite the same. I ordered mine from De Waard (I think they are made especially for/by them, from ground sheet material). If I were you, I'd order them from De Waard as well (EUR 2.95 each, excl. p&p (which wasn't even charged, in my case)). Just ask for bisonyl raincaps, for mounting on the awning poles, between tent and vario. P&p will be a few euros, most likely.

grtz,

Thank you so much.

I'll go direct.

I guess it's something I hope I'll never need!
