Hi

I have had one on an Eriba Troll, and one on a Trident. I thought they were very good, but I would always roll it up at night as it is very simple thing to do. I have seen the damage a sudden squall can do. So err on the side of caution. I always tie my present one down with strong guylines.



Andy up! up!

I've seen one that was blown right back over the top of the van and did considerable damage to the van. I always roll ours away at night because of this.
I wasn't the caravanstore type though.

Hi there,

Better to roll it in than be stood outside at 2am in a surprise thunderstorm with teeming rain running down the back of your pyjamas - like me two weeks ago! oh_blast!

Live and learn; if you manage to live long enough!!

Best regards,

As well as adding a rafter to your Fiamma awning I also use the following
