    Hi we got our first MH in January and need some awing advice please, at the moment we have the fiamma privacy room but my partner doesn't feel overly confident having it up when it's windy so we're looking for another. We have a Elddis auto quest 100 ( cab over) any advice or recommendations please

    We had our Fiamma room up over the weekend, and it got quite windy, had no problems with it. You can get tie downs if you intend to use it in very high winds.

    As long as you have it pegged down correctly and also fit storm straps to the front of the window awning you will be fine.

    We bought an Inaca St Jordi. A bit on the heavy side but high quality material also looks good and really solid. We used to have an Isabella caravan awning and this seems on a par and is rock solid in wind.

    Then have a look at the over inflated price for a few air filled tubes.

    I just ordered a 3.9mtr awning with fibre poles....£159

    The same type with air tubes.......£385

    No brainer to me.
