    The full size screen is just held on with velcro so I think it would handle the offset between the upper and lower sections. Not sure on the demensions though. Ask Dave Bates if it's an option. Obviously you would have to removed it everytime before closing up the Karavan for travel.

    The older awning ( I think they called it the extended awning) was bullet proof once fully set up and staked down. It was lots of work though so i only set it up if I was staying a few days or knew storms were coming in. The Fiamma is always mounted and ready to role out so it's set up is...

    Not an issue, just a recomendation. The Fiamma awning is super easy to deploy but is not as robust as the older Kimberley Canvas awnings. They had a ton of sub frame and stretcher bars to make it strong enough to handle about any storm. If the fiamma is going to be deployed during high winds...

    If we had kids using the shower I would have left it installed. The shower can be hand held so we just point it away from us as we adjust the temp, then re-hang it on the shower wall. As long as you understand the risk, it can be managed.

    Nothing big. there is always some fine tuning needed but all minor. Dave added a anti-scald vavle to my hot water system thinking that was a good safety idea. It ended up limiting my hot water capability for showers so we ended up removing it. Now the hot water system works great.

    Both are easy to pack and go on a whim. The Kruiser is nice due to the extra storage and lack of limitation what you can have on the bed. That also means you can any mattress thickneess you want where the Karavan is limited due to the need to colapse. Both tow great on the freeway. I think...

    I'm sure the kruiser does have a higher center of gravity but it's still very low by design. The Karavan does track a little tighter radius but not enough to be a concern,

    Just guessing, I would say I not be able to get back to 15% of the places i took the Karavan. Not enough limitation to bother me. There are hundreds of new spots I have not seen yet. :-)

    I have owned a Kamper back in the day, then the Karavan for 10 years. I sold the Karavan last year and now have an S class Kruiser. I loved them all. Upgrading to the kruiser for me was huge 10 year technology jump with 600AH of Lithium and 725watts of solar (with the 175watt portable)...
