  11. Not a great start to living in caravan I also may have to take down awning and replace the awning rail as water issue. Very expensive start around $4k spend on awning and caravan repairs.

Not sure how I would add extra roof poles I will take a new photo tomorrow afternoon and post it on here to see what you think. fixed add on but will see how I go with awning. @Les Medes I do have 5 roof poles so is OK. Just trying to do the final tweaks. Before I put false floor in etc. I have only been on this site three weeks now. Will be my first year in caravan. Never put awning up before but you are correct my awning is 1100 I am located in Nelson, NZ

  16. Hi, I have to change my corner roof poles. But I would like to know the best way to do it so not have to take down whole awning. I was thinking of undoing the guy ropes on the corner but leaving the storm strap on on side? I am by my self living so just need to make life easy so not have to take it down then re do it. Thanks
  17. Cheers for tip; To re position them do I release the tension clip then undo the rail clip then move then re tension after. I am new to putting awnings up Thank you

  20. Hi I am located in Nelson, NZ We have very strong SW Winds up to 74KM sometimes. The draft skirts still letting in the very strong winds and pushing awning out. I am permanently living in my caravan what would be a better solution winds coming through draft skirt. I was thinking plywood in front of it screwed with stakes into ground. I will be putting proper wood floor in next few weeks. Thanks
