In my humble opinion yes it aught to be able to be moved forward.
But if I do that myself I run the risk of falling foul of any warranty (its 4 months old).
I TOTALLY agree with you.  It's an A/S problem to sort out - not yours.  As it stands it can only be used as a canopy.  Look at your brochure to see if it is described as a canopy or an awning - I suspect and hope the latter - in which case it can be argued that it is not fit for purpose.

Apologies if stating the obvious but it seems that most coach builds with end lounge have the habitation door immediately behind the cab. The wind out awnings appear similarly positioned as the A/S EL Duo give or take a few centimetres either way. So wonder if fitting safari or wind blocker canopies has been a problem with say, Auto trail, Elddis or other makes?

Dealer did his best and followed Auto Sleeper procedures, certainly was bothered but sometimes even I can't persuade the powers that be.

Yes - dealer was good enough to swap the canopy for a 4.5 mtr one at a reduced price.

Which dealer?

They often come in for a lot of criticism, so it's always good to know which ones stand out above the (sometimes dubious) rest!

I think the OP is sorted now, but Con & Use regs wouldn't apply to such an accessory, due to the height the awning is and the fact that moving it forward would not endanger other road users, or pedestrians, means it would be legal.

Any overhang is calculated from the extreme of the vehicle, in this case the front bumper and the awning would never get that far forward, so would never be an issue.

If moved forward too far it would look unusual as it would be sticking out further than normal, but would solve the issue of overlapping the hab door.
