    Hi we keep looking for a drive away awning for our high roof MWB fiat ducato conversion, meaning we still have a large sliding door so we need a wide and tall drive away awning, so as not to rip when opening and closing the side door, Poles or air will do, has anyone got advise on which awning will fit regards

    Looking at your photo I'm wondering how you would attach an awning.
    They usually slot into the front of a windout awning or you have an awning rail attached to van above door.
    I think advice from someone who sells and fits awnings would be usefull.
    They could tell you what others have done.

    I am busy asking similar questions currently so not much of an expert! Like you I have a high Peugeot Boxer, with a Orminstor wind out awning AND a roof rack. The way in which my wind out awning is fitted - sitting on top of the roof rack mounts means that in effect there will always be a 2cm gap between the roof and the awning - it is in effect impossible to seal, so I have given up on the awning room and just gone for front and side sun and rain shields.
