must look a bit closer at our awning when we get the van back from peugeot, Awning isnt Fiamma so just need to check those straps will work with it.

Hi there,

I think our Posts crossed. Check out the pegs for the Fiamma tie-down system! up!

With regard to the uprights there are only two holes fitted on each one. I slotted and drilled a couple of lumps of aluminium plate that I had spare so that they are now held down by 4 rock-pegs on each upright. allthumbz

We have bought but not yet used the Lilypad Windblockers and they certainly take up very little room. Rather than buying the wheel cover and skirt I have made them from an old PVC covered table cloth. With your sewing skills I am sure you could make them for virtually no cost as well. All I needed to buy was large eyelets as I already had a piece of clothes line. An old shower curtain would also be suitable and lighter.

Thanks Louise up!

We go about it a bit different, use them mainly as a wind blockers here or in Spain a sun block for which they are excellent. Though when it is really windy not because of the wind blockers but the fiama we tend to take them down in the evening (cant stand the fiama rattling) takes 2 minutes,then pop them back on in the morning. They really do make a difference and for the amount of room they take don't think you can beat them.

Using plates like those and rock pegs would sure keep the legs on the ground smile!

You been on the shandy again Ian - only 4 peg holes in those plates. There's a load of aluminium checker plate at work - think I'll make a few of these plates smile!

Yep! Four holes in the plate itself and there is one in the foot of the upright that fits in the slot! allthumbz

As it is, the last time I checked 4 + 1 = 5 lol4 lol4

Had I had two lumps of aluminium plate the size of the one in the photograph I would have drilled another hole just to the left of the slot and that would have made it six pegs! allthumbz
