But they still need assembling and pegging out.

Great piece of kit, let the last one go with the van. Thinking about another.

Open up the awning channel on the horizontal near the rear then you can put it in without getting it out the bag.

Go for the biggest one that will fit your van.

I had a short one second hand and liked it but wanted a longer one so managed to get a longer one second hand and eventually bought a 4.4 when I bought new.

Cheerful

We use ours regularly, the porch and full awnings hardly ever are used. I would recommend their tie-down kit and put a slope on it so water runs off. If any bits break there is a good supply of parts, though working out how to fit them can be a challenge. If it's really windy, best go roll them up. But overall, recommended.

I haven't used mine for a while but agree they are a great piece of kit, easy to set up, I always used my storm straps with mine as well as the string you get with them to peg them out, I also used the sides and fronts, so it was like a proper awning only quicker to put up and shelter for Bonniedog (when she was alive). If you get the bigger one make sure you have an extra roof pole to stop water pooling, as well as slightly lower at the back. Good luck.
