    Several of you on another thread have said you've fitted the normal C rail instead of using the track in the awning. I believe this is a 7.5 mm channel and the awning channels are 5 mm. Apart from the ease of threading are you guys happy about the normal Kampa type strip not pulling out of the rail.

    Also have any of you tried using the drive away kits with the Kampa air type awnings.

    Many thanks for any input in advance.

    We're thinking of doing the same thing - can you report back to let us know if it's as easy as @scotjimland says - don't forget we're numpties and Mark is left handed and doesn't have a full complement of digits!
