    Hi
    We have a 2007 Bessacarr E560, with an awning, and was wondering if we could fit a awning skirt ? But " when looking we just cannot seem to be able to find one for a Bessacarr Awning , can anyone please point us in the right direction ,

    Regards
    Ivie & Patricia

    Hi
    We have a Bessie, do you mean along the underside of the van, I screwed awning rail strip underneath and use caravan skirt bought from caravan shop to slid in when we have the awning up in Spain etc. Pete

    Ps a pal had one surface mounted with velcro but it looked a mess.

    Hi
    What I mean is for two sides and a front that connect to my awning that's factory fitted, this would then give us an extra room , hope this clarifies folks

    Did you manage to get the rail around the wheel hub or do you just have a draught?

    I fixed the rail upto the arch on both sides so the skirt crosses the wheel it leaves a small gap at the top, To cover this I use a seperate piece which I stick to the side of the van with a couple of suckers then tuck the bottom end behind the skirt making a covered wheel arch, I hope I have explained it clearly.

    Thanks for that" now it makes sense, as when I called a company earlier in the week ' they said that Bessacarr put their logo on the awning and that I would need to find out the maker, so now need to do more investigations" Boy " they know how to make things difficult" ? ? Or is it just me ,

    These look amazing" just what you need up here in Bonnie Scotland to allow sitting out' looking to the distant horizon, with a wee dram, or two ;") without the dreaded midges, but Patricia is wanting the room with windows to the three sides and door that can all close over at night for privacy.
