    What pegs do you use to hold them down with?

    And how do you attach the straps to the peg?

    I thought I knew all about this stuff until last night.:rolleyes:

    When we were at Shell Island the other week got talking to a guy with a all singing /dancing tent and the very best of accessories, we remarked on his tent pegs they were flat and strange looking then he said they were £23 for 10, and in a storm a few weeks before when others had come down his had not budged, I'll have a look on internet and see can I find the name .

    They provide "give" to help prevent strain on the pegs.

    I have got the bloody big peg things, V shaped heavy duty metal, lost the springs somewhere still use the pegs, but attach the ratchet bit directly to the peg

    Get decent ratchet straps or they just come loose, I probably have ours too tight, but I reckon better than that an awning wrapped round the motorhome

    We are the same, except that we have an Omnistor kit because we have an Omnistor awning.
    I have something similar that I made from aluminium chequer plate (pinched the pattern from @SUGGY) but agree on winding in if it is too windy.

    Yes, I wind in our awning (when we use it) at the same time as winding up Mrs Deluxe.......

    We have a rumpy pumpy air awning which is brilliant, and was even admired by no less than @Tootles himself.....

    I have a pair of the big screw in things I think they're for tying dogs too. Screw them right down then a ratchet strap on each corner of the awning connected to the anchors job done. Bobs yer Aunty:)(y) Simples


    Been using this system for over 8 years never failed yet.

    Good bit of kit, if nothing else it helps keep the pitch invaders from walking past the van. (y)
