Maybe have seen a few nice caddys there before, what does yours look like? Do you have a awning or anything when camping. ...

We were camping in the van on another site just down the coast, we walked into shell island for the day.

Found a company called Stitches and Steel. Never herd of them until I stumbled across them on Instagram.

They make a Transporter/Caddy Hybrid barn door awning. Almost what I'm after...

Been talking to Stitches and Steel, can buy the normal awning still if you'd like but supposedly bringing out more Caddy soecific stuff early next year - so keep your eyes peeled. I know I will be!

Deffo on my shopping list, means I can still have my back doors open whilst sat inside chilling with a beer, not getting wet and enjoying the view. Well done for finding it dude. ImageImage

this is exactly what id like to get! I do wonder what the tension would be like on the short door though, it looks a little baggy in the picture

this is what I have from my previous car, not tried to see if it fits the caddy yet but hoping it will do, its supposed to fit mpv's/minivans as well:

I've told them there's now a growing interest/demand in a Caddy specific version. Can only hope they bring one out soon!

I'd be interested in seeing come closer pictures around the doors, seals, just everywhere.

Looks like there's an overlap on it...?

Out of the box it is a bit loose but I have done a few tweaks and it fit really well. Definitely worth the money. I am going to mod it so it has a zip on front to make it fully enclosed.

Good idea, I would have thought a flap coming down encasing the back doors is a nice touch and great wind break too. Keep us posted with an update of its eventual look dude.
