  1. Some good info Pickard57 thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ‘ I know what you mean regarding the draught beams, I will follow your advice. We managed to fold ours up complete and get it into the bag, have to say it was a struggle lol, making use of both bags sounds like a good plan ๐Ÿ˜€ We are off to thetford forrest a week Friday, armed with all this info will make it a breeze ๐Ÿ˜Ž canโ€™t come soon enough ๐Ÿ‘ Regarding the pegs... I used a few of the ones supplied but they are not really up to the job on hard standing ๐Ÿ˜ณ I used mostly rock pegs, which reminds me that I need to get another set so I can make the ones supplied redundant, as stated youโ€™d think they would have supplied something a little more up to the job.... hey ho ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜€ that aside WE LOVE IT ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜€
  2. Our wheel arch covers arrived Friday we took off for a long weekend at Norman Hurst court Battle on Thursday so unable to make use of the new cover,we did however erect the awning itโ€™s a lovely bit of kit, the quality is fantastic, pretty easy to feed into the rail, really like the single inflation point went up really quick using the hand pump supplied ๐Ÿ‘ The roof hight plus the upright front means you can make use of the whole floor area just like a polled awning ๐Ÿ‘ So overall we are 100% happy with our decision to invest in this awning ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜€
  3. And thatโ€™s why they are the leading brand in awnings,great customer service, prompt reply and issue resolved. Seems the dealers selling them are forgetting to ask, they are just thrilled to be taking some money anyway all sorted, so happy days ๐Ÿ‘ We have 3 nights booked locally this weekend so we can try it out for size, if I remember I will post a picture
  4. Same here, hopefully it can be resolved ASAP ๐Ÿ‘
  5. 2019 Ford transit custom just about to turn 20k, itโ€™s an excellent tow vehicle with the added benefit of becoming the secure bike shed. To be honest, I do not have a clue what mpg it gets ignorance is bliss I do mean to find out but it always slips my mind
  6. Hi BM, we got ours a couple of weeks back and di exactly the same as you by unpacking it all in the garage, it does seem like that the wheel arch cover is only or a single axle. You would think at this price point they would allow for both the single and twin axle vans I wonder what comes with the full awnings !!
  7. We have been using a Vango kalari 420 since 2017 other than a beam failing, which was replaced without hesitation has been excellent, during the night I always leave a couple of panels unzipped along the top to aid with the condensation which really helps. We have however just treated ourselves to an Isabella Air Cirrus North Awning, the quality is second to none as youโ€™d expect at that price point. I was contemplating getting their full sized Capri north with carbon poles but when is see the Cirrus set up it was a no brainier for us. Hopefully we will get to try it out next weekend
  8. Ours does the same, I thought I had busted it the very first time I lowered it after fitting the locks๐Ÿ˜ฎ itโ€™s a sturdy old set up so not to concerned ๐Ÿ‘
  9. Yes guilty as charged๐Ÿ˜ฎ I took a picture of the vin plate on the dealer demo van, I wanted to satisfy my mind that the van we were being given at handover was in fact a new one and not their sales demo van ๐Ÿ˜Š happy to report that I should not have had any doubts ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜€
  10. Excellent ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘ we also had a four night holiday on the drive ๐Ÿ˜€
  11. Itโ€™s very noticeable on our 675 during the warmer days which got me a little worried until I see it on lots of other coachman vans, even the the ones in the dealership ๐Ÿ‘ donโ€™t go looking at the roof in a heatwave ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜€ I have been assured itโ€™s all normal ๐Ÿ‘
  12. Should of been normanshurst battle over the bank holiday Did have a short break on the drive last week
