    Thinking about adding sides and front to the awning.

    Suggestions recommendations and costs?

    Well you can get a Safari Room. That's probably your only option using the F45 canopy but it's designed specifically for the job.

    Not cheap though http://www.agentfiamma.co.uk/fiamma-privacy-room-safari-enclosure.html

    You can get preowned ones for a lot less. I bought one from another Funster although it hasn't been out of my garage at home yet.

    If you want new it might be worth looking at something different, perhaps a stand alone one that doesn't attach to your existing canopy. Plenty of threads about them if you search.

    Yep.

    I paid £200 for mine just because it was there. Wouldn't have bought one otherwise. Have a look round for 2nd hand ones but be careful of the length and height variations.

    I waited and waited and was lucky enough to pick up an almost new kampa motor rally rumpy pumpy awning for less than half price. Well pleased with that.

    I have a Fiamma side blocker unused that should fit the F45 (which is what I got it for) but without pole that you can have for a suitable liquid donation, Dave

    It saddened me to hear that you may not be buying a complete Safari room, for there are few more interesting activities to watch than seeing Safari rooms and similar being erected. There have been times when watching their erection has filled a whole afternoon with entertainment. On the other hand, Windblockers which can be equally effective, are rather boring as they can be put up quite quickly. The worst in this respect are the new inflatable awnings that go up faster than I can drink a cup of tea; totally, totally boring. Getting a complete Safari type unit should be easy, for lots of people only ever put them up once and then place them in storage, I am not sure why.

    The Windblockers that we have are easier to put up, take down and pack :)

    I have had to sell our privacy room side and front panels Dave, they are so heavy! :( Will be buying wind blockers this year instead.

    We picked up a second hand safari room complete, bought it from the dealer who sold us the van. It was brand new and never been used, they bought it for shows, and then never used it - nice!
    So keep your eyes open for second hand, you're bound to pick up a bargain.

    I am now a bit of an expert putting ours up, I dispatch wife to campsite shop, 20 mins later the safari room is up, and usually before wife returns from shop with loads of tourist nik naks! :D

    What size is your awning. I have the full fiamma safari room for a 4 metre awning which I can let you have cheapish. Pm me for details.

    Lots selling. What's the reasons. Are they more trouble than they are worth?
