What Awning

Recommended Posts

The winds of late have ripped my current awning.

 

Replacement is needed, but what do I get?

 

Durable, year round usage, easy to put up and take down on my own.

 

390 size and above preferred.

 

Suggestions please.

 

Budget is undecided.

Kampa blow up, easy to set up and if well pegged can withstand pretty high winds - the 'poles' just bend.

Yip i would go with an air awning, If the wind does break it loose then there is nothing really to break and less damage to the van.

From the posts on here it looks as if Kampa has taken over from Isabella.

For what its worth, I was at Daleacre a couple of years ago during a bad gale, only three awnings on the site were still standing the next morning, two Isabellas and a Dorema. The motor caravan oposite me even had the whole cassette ripped off the site leaving gaping holes in it.

Did the air awnings all fail there too?

 

Im just struggling to justify £1000 for a Kampa which may only last a year or so as it will be in pretty much permanent use.

 

Or am I underestimating lifespan, I'm sure I read somewhere they have a design life of only 20 weeks or so, that's not even 6 months.
