Holtkamper Kyte S & XL Description

Pole-free Awning

The Kyte's pole-free awning is exclusive to Holtkamper and you won't find anything similar on any other trailer tent in the world. The awning 'floats' above the ground with no need for loose upright poles for support, thus giving you the use of all the available space inside.

There is also a front panel available for the Kyte to enclose the awning to protect you from adverse weather conditions. The suspended carbon mast keeps the entire awning taut, even during storms; all you need to do is tighten the outer ends of the awning, it requires no ropes at all.

The awning remains connected to the mast when erected and when folded away so positioning the mast is quick and simple and being made of carbon fibre ensures the mast is both incredibly strong and also very lightweight.

The pole-free awning runs seamlessly into the roof extensions which have been especially designed for the Kyte. There are no loose poles for these, they simply fold in and out on a hinged frame. These roof extensions have a variety of purposes. Firstly, they shield the windows and side walls from direct sunlight and rain and secondly, they prevent the side walls from getting too dirty as rain doesn't run down the walls. This is beneficial as dirt combined with moisture is the biggest cause of mould forming in tent fabric. However, the roof of the Kyte really excels itself with the Holtkamper Membrane Airco Tent System.

Holtkamper Membrane Airco Tent System

The Holtkamper Membrane Airco Tent System is a worldwide patented system for ventilation, insulation and the prevention of condensation; air conditioning for your trailer tent and once you use this you will never want to do without it! The material of the Kyte is already designed to reflect the sun and heat but the Membrane Airco System takes this even further. The roof is actually made from two layers of material and this is how the system works. In normal or cold weather conditions you leave the two layers zipped together and the system works automatically. The 'climate chamber' between the two layers works to prevent condensation in rainy conditions and to provide insulation in cold conditions. In hot weather you unzip and separate the layers using a few small poles. This causes several effects. The hot air inside the tent rises up through the first roof layer and is blown away by the wind, whilst at the same time the upper roof layer is creating a shadow over the inner roof which prevents the sun from further heating the air inside the trailer tent, leaving you with a cool and comfortable living environment.

Sleeping in the Kyte

The Kyte has a king size double bed plus various optional Kids Tents that will also sleep 1-3 children.

The Kyte is suitable for any size family; whether there are two or five of you the Kyte can be tailored to suit your needs. Inside there is a large double bed with a slatted base for comfort and to allow air to circulate to prevent condensation. To further prevent condensation the bedroom area also has windows that can be opened and a huge ventilation wall with mosquito netting. There is then the option to fit an extension that provides you with another two - three berth sleeping room with the optional space for a wardrobe or toilet.


Storage is no issue in the Kyte; in fact the entire body of the trailer is storage space for all of your belongings. By lifting up the bed base you gain access to the massive 1500 litre luggage space underneath and there is a further 250l of storage space under the soft top when the trailer tent is folded away. The Kyte also features the Holtkamper Pack-N-Go System. This means that when the trailer tent is folded away the storage space under the bed can still be accessed. All you have to do is unzip the cover and the bed and canvas easily lift together. This is very quick and convenient, especially when you realise something you need has been packed away!

Kyte Kitchen

The kitchen supplied with the Kyte is built into the body of the trailer and fixed in place so there is no lifting or difficult manoeuvring into place before use. The kitchen unit itself is beautiful and fantastically equipped; it features a 3 burner, gas hob with a stylish glass plate, a practical (optional) water supply and a fridge. Furthermore the Kyte kitchen features two spacious shelves, fitted with plastic boxes, for storage and there are two large flaps that lift to reveal a large 'kitchen hold' where you can store everything to hand. The awning panel at the side of the kitchen can also be removed if necessary so that you always have a comfortable climate for cooking in.

Wind Force® System

The Kyte now comes as standard with the Wind Force® system; a new and exciting feature that uses over and under pressure to erect and take down the trailer tent automatically at the push of a button. The system is so impressive it received the International Design Award Innovations for new mobility 2012-2013. See Videos tab above.


The trailer itself is built onto an AL-KO braked chassis, with shock absorbers and 14” wheels to ensure a safe and stable towing experience.
