Motordome Tailgate Quick Pitch Drive Away Rear Awning
Our Motordome Tailgate Quick Pitch Drive Away Rear Awning is a long standing favourite - especially in this larger size. These ‘Tried & Tested’ awnings showcase the very best of Khyam’s innovations with the unique and patented ‘Rapidex™’ system, offering a truly versatile tailgate awning that can be pitched in a matter of minutes. With an unrivalled pitching and striking time that no other system can match, these awnings are the awnings for you.
The Tailgate has been a firm favourite in the Khyam Range for some time. With so many Campervan’s, 4 x 4’s SUV’s and MPV’s on the market the demand for a Khyam Quick Erect Tailgate Awning has grown significantly. The Tailgate Awning is designed to fit most family vehicles, 4 x 4’s and Campervans. The Tailgate has a footprint of 2.1×2.1m allowing for ample room; whether you require additional living space, storage area, or even extra sleeping space! With the Tailgate, you can get a detachable 2-berth inner-tent separately. The inner is created using breathable polyester to allow for a comfortable atmosphere throughout the night, preventing condensation. The inner-tent has a fully waterproof sewn-in groundsheet for added protection against those pesky insects and the typical camping weather!
The Tailgate Awning is designed for most vehicles
with rear opening doors such as VW T4 and T5 Campervans.
The adjustable connection tunnel allows a snug fit around
the rear of the vehicle.
A separate completely waterproof SPS Groundsheet is available to purchase to cover the whole area of the Tailgate and now follows the rest of the Motordome range in that it is like a bathtub and comes up around the sides a few inches to give more protection from the elements.
Now for the technical stuff! The Tailgate benefits from using Khyam Commissioned 150D Ripstop WeatherWeave Pro Flysheet with taped seams, and additional polyurethane ensures an excellent hydrostatic performance of 5000mm!!
The Rapidex™ Quick Erect Pole System means that all poles remain sewn-in to the flysheet when the tent is packed away. To pitch, you simply unfold the awning and lock the joints into place within a matter of seconds. The tried and tested Rapidex™ System uses strong, sold fibreglass poles and durable, hard-wearing nylon joints. So, with a little practice the Tailgate can be erected in mere seconds!
CARBON MONOXIDE WARNING! – Under no circumstances should the engine of the vehicle be started or left running whilst the Tailgate Awning is connected to the vehicle.

For purchases made in 2020 and onwards, we offer a lifetime warranty on your Khyam Product(s).
For more than 30 years, here at Khyam, we've engineered innovative tents, awnings and equipment for camping and outdoors, all of which we build to last. This is why we provide a product guarantee for every single item’s reasonable lifetime, at no additional cost. We at Khyam (UK) Ltd will therefore guarantee to undertake a review of all product returns and assess them individually based on their usage. If we find a genuine fault or defect in your item that shouldn’t be there, based on normal use, then we’ll repair or replace it for free – no questions asked. But, if that 20-year-old tent of yours has seen more summits than hot dinners, then it might be time to buy a new one! In any case, we’ll review each case and will let you know if we can fix or replace it.
The Product Lifetime Guarantee does not apply for any specific period as each of our products have different expected lifetimes. As an example, a highly technical RAPIDEX awning will have a different expected product lifetime to a standard awning. Other factors are taken into consideration also. We have produced a general guidance matrix for expected product lifetimes here. Please note that the matrix is for guidance and information purposes only as we will assess each individual item and the applicability of the Product Lifetime Guarantee based on a number of factors.
You can find out more about our Product Lifetime Guarantee including the FAQs for all Khyam products here.
