Thule Quickfit - great new concept
Quote of the moment: "no hesitation in using your company again & recommending to friends." PW
New year, new prices from Thule. Around 5-10% up but some have actually gone down, as below!
Quickfit 15 min only: The complete tent is in one piece and doesn’t need profiles. It easily slides into the caravan rail or the additional rail below the awning cassette, and is easily fixed to the front rail of the awning. The front canopy is installed with flexible arch tubes. All fastening points have been thought through to enhance the installation. Modularity: All sides are fully zippable, can be taken away to create an open porch, or opened side-ways to create a door on all sides, or left or right, can even completely open top to bottom. Expanded 2015 range. Also see the video links below. one on first install/erect and one on modularity. QuickFit suits the usual 2.5m projection awnings, see the EasyLink below for 2.25m awnings. This may include the pre-2010 4.5m Autotrail versions with their smaller projection, for Easylink the rail needs to be position at 2.55m max height ground to slot.
Quickfit: A Revolutionary new room from Thule. Combining the best of existing Room/Residence design with modern tent technology and also a little of the best of caravan awnings, Quickfit is exactly that, quick and easy to erect and with little installation as such - on the Thule-Omni 6200 and 6900 awnings especially but also easy with the optional fixings on 5000, 5002, F45, F65 etc - and now on the new Thule 1200 too. It's compact and lightweight when packed away in its smart bag, made in strong pu-coated ripstop polyester and with a double roof once attached - for better insulation and wet weather comfort. Offers left or right doors, all removable panels, compete with windslip & wheel cover, curtains/blinds, an integrated front canopy and sides mosquito mesh. Universal fit too!
The only thing needed other than your existing Omnistor or Fiamma awning is an awning rail just under the main awning box and we can supply white or grey or anthracite painted rail for that purpose - in a 3x 130cm pack and 35x10mm section for convenience (grey was 'anodised' but now painted). Wall mounted awnings and earlier 6-series/F65 will need this rail to be fitted to the wall high up near the awning box but still at a height to suit the mounted height ranges given below. Some 6-series awnings like may have a LED strip position that will accept the rail, this is illustrated in the instructions. Although not essential a central tension rafter is advisable. NB: Third support legs incompatible with Quickfit.
Thule's newer 6200 and 9200 awnings take a special set of adapter rail strips that fit to the underside of the awning box via a built-in profile, no gluing required! Caravans with roll-out awnings can usually use the caravan rail. Although not essential a central tension rafter is advisable as it is with most rooms.
A special version for Ducato Campervan/'PVC' with the H2 roof and fitted with a roof awning like the 6200 was released in the 2014 season - as pictured above.
Put aside any preconceptions! Although Thule call this an awning 'tent' and it uses the latest tent technology this is a fully featured and comfortable room with the extra advantage of a double roof,

Combinations? Pictures right show Quickfit under a longer awning with the new 2015 'smart panel' blockers added to create a cosy corner. One shot shows the G2 Blocker Side in place while the other shows a 1m G2 Blocker Front but they can be used together of course! Other Options? Roof Awning Fixing Rails & Wall Awning Fixing Rails both as 3x 1.3m; Rail Adhesive; 2.75-3.00m Projection Kit; Quickfit Side Tensioning Kit (Recommended); Awning Fixation Kit F (for Fiamma etc). Buy below >>> NB: Kit F is for all sizes - not just the 4m as per literature.
Other Optional Extras: Already incredibly versatile with several opening panels and also alternative door positions - as pictures - it is also possible to add various rafters, awning lights. heaters and groundsheets. LED lights are very much the 'in thing' now with decent light but very little battery consumption. Various designs from spot to strip are popular. Plain rafters increase awning rigidity and a central one adds an extra support option. Groundsheets are not required by everyone but our breathable and grass-friendly versions are allowed on most campsites whereas non-breathable ones may not be.
Mounted Heights: Medium = 2.25m - 2.44m ; Large = 2.45m - 2.64m ; XL = 2.65m - 2.84m : A customer reported that Large is a 'bit mean' over 2.6m and XL might be better. May apply to others too?
Essential Extras: You must have a fixing rail, there are two special versions one for 6200 & 9200 and another for 1200 and again for the 5200 in various lengths. Other awnings use the Universal/Wall rail version. Also if you have a large projection awning like 9200, 8000, 6900, 6802, you will also need the 2,75-3,00m Projection Kit. And for fitting under a Fiamma awning the EasyLink Kit F.
Ducato-Boxer? Our expert says about the room to fit a Thule 6200 on Ducato-Boxer-Relay "... the 307060 Quickfit Van has sides that are shaped to suit the side contour of the van, so this will sit better than a normal Quickfit fitted to this type of van. The ‘standard’ Quickfit should be flexible enough to get around the curve, but it might not look as neat as the ‘van’ version. It might mean however that you could have a larger room under one of the longer awnings. NB 3.25 / 3.50 / 3.75 / 4.00m awnings may be fitted to various Ducato-Boxer!
All QuickFit are 2.25 deep but please note they must be fitted to a 2.50m min projection awning to achieve the proper tension in the room itself. For 2.25m projection awnings use the new EasyLink instead.
First fitting & Video: The Fixation Rail must be in place to erect the room so do get these in place and try assembly at home some time before you go away! Videos: You can watch an on-line YouTube Video showing how straightforward it all is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-QxSTdgFQ0. Also QuickFit modularity https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMalX728CMY
