i`ll start with the timeless U.K Volkswagon 70`s classic, the Devon Motent

this is a circa 1972`s ish model

Image

complete with rubberized yellow groundsheet 8) 8)
Image

the side entrance door on this early model, velco`d across the top and folded at one side to roll back into the side, zipped at the other side

Image
Image


nice BIG window for spying on your fellow campers...or undressing in front of 8O
Image

Generally attached to side of the bus via the awning rail pre-ditted to devon conversions, but also sociably acceptable to hang off the back for that continental vibe
Image


ladys & Gentlemen, I give your the early devon Mo-money, Motent :cheers:

Dont know the name for these ones ???

but there are loads around in the UK still...pressumable splitty period as the internal door works perfect on cargo doors, but not so good for a slider

majority of them come in orange / blue scheme

Image

Image

Image

Image


would love to know the name, maker, history on these ones if anybody knows ???

splitscreen period

Devon day awning

standard with the devon carravette, the sun canopy with (Y)awning frame
Image

Image

attaches to the awning rail that was fitted to the roof of devon conversions and can be rolled up and fastened in situ for travelling

Image

Devon also offered as optional extras the lower skirt you see in the 1st 2 pictures, this was also help on by an awning rail along the rocker and 3 press studs around the wheel arch

with the optional skirt came the zip on sides, coming in 2 halfs to give a good combination of set ups

Image
Image
Image
Image

Image

Devon also offered the contact details for Awning makers Harrisons of Bristol, who would provide a freestanding awning if the Devon customers required one..

this is a 66/67 model

slightly earlier Devon / Harrison standa lone awning

this one has the slightly off set and longer front legs...and straighter shorter rear ones...making the poles slightly challenging to put up, like a flippin rubix cube

Image
Image
Image

Image
Image
Image
Image


last used in 1991 by the look of it....has the original hessian bags, pegs and blue pvc floor which i didnt see in the bags until after i`d took it down again ...

a slightly more faded raliegh, also in green

Image

Image

Image

a selection of other motents....they tend to change slightly over the years, different size windows...or the doors opena different way etc....this one has a canopy door

Image
Image
Image


side opening door...with bigger windows on front and side

Image

Image

some have bright yellow rubber floor, this one had a biege rubber floor
Image
Image

....and tasteful curtains

Image

no idea what make this one was...never seen another, probably never see another, maybe moving into 80`s terretory here...but what a great match for a turkis bus - sold to a fella off here, so if you wanna ever sell it back to me :-)
