Drive away Awning

Post by shelldrake on Tue Jun 25, 2013 9:04 pm

It's worth doing research and shopping around. We fancied a Movelite Pro Carbon Midi drive away awning which we  saw advertised at £450. Just recd one from E bay  cost  £250!!!!!
Erected it this afternoon in the garden and found it an excellent piece of kit!!!  Off on Saturday for 2 weeks so will see how it performs.

We bought one new last year with a bedroom annex, great for space but we did experience a lot of leakage through the seams. The instructions said this is to be expected at first, then, after a good soaking will become sealed.
I thought a five week holiday would be enough time for this magic to happen but it was still leaking when we
packed up to come home rainyday

I have recently bought some tent seam sealing wax to apply this year, hopefully this will work. Although we have decided there isn't going to be any wet weather this year. sun

Apart from the leakage we are very pleased with it, it stood up to some very high winds on the Somerset seafront and the West Coast of Scotland, and the little canopy over the front kept the doorway dry.

Looks like good stuff with a multitude of uses. I can't see it being sold anywhere in the UK yet.

If I coated my feet and legs with it does that mean I wouldn't need to wear my waders for boat launching anymore scratch head
