  1. Thank you all! I picked up some silicone spray and sprayed the rail. Just pitched up and the awning slid on in seconds rather than us fighting it for 10mins! (We used the material ties that were in tied around the awning as pulls). All I need now is the weather to stop testing how waterproof the awning is 😂
  2. Just a follow up and a thanks for the advice. I managed to pick up a Vango Sonoma II 250cm, annex, porch door, mesh screen and breathable carpets for a big discount. We had a play in the garden and it’s wide enough to maximise space without going across the window of the van. Weather permitting it’s going to be used in anger over Christmas as we’ve decide cooking Christmas dinner in the caravan on a cliff top is a great idea! LOL Just a quick side query - does sliding an awning onto the rail get easier? It was as hard work as putting a tent up but I needed a step! Thanks again for the help. Merry Christmas To You 😃
  3. I need to notify my ins. Co. As when discussing mods at renewal apparently they class adding roof bars as a mod (Citroen Dispatch van) but no extra charge for them or the bike rack so hopefully tow bar will be the same.
  4. Not confused as such, just wanting the top rail length as yes it’s a porch awning I’m looking at. thanks all for the advise 🙂
  5. Hi, I’m about to become an owner of a 2018 Bailey Pursuit 400-2 (my first caravan). Having looked at specs it has a rail awning size of 843cm but looking online for potential awnings they all only quote the horizontal top length. I like the look of a Vango awning that you can add side pods onto. It’s a 280 (so width of 280cm). Will this fit on my van or do I need to look smaller? Sorry if it’s a stupid question but as I say this is all new (& exciting)! Thanks :)
