    Jgee If you are going to any shows, they often sell them with large discount on the very last day because they don't want to take them back home again. Might be worth considering. Regards.

    Hi,

    If you take a look in the ads section of the forum, you will find a couple preloved.

    Mine was there but I have not advertised it for a time. If you follow the links on my website to Drive away awning you will see a page on how it is errected.

    http://www.ishinfo.btinternet.co.uk/

    May be of interest. Still for sale if you are in my area.

    Have a look in the Classifieds section, there is a Kyham Motordome Excelsior for sale.
    We are very pleased with ours, takes about 10 minutes to put up or take down.

    Awning

    We have just ordered one from Tamworth Camping. It's a Movelite XL and it was £119 delivered. They have a supply of overstocked and customer returned awnings which are way lower priced than anywhere. Give them a try. We dealt with a young lady called Heather tel:01827 250095.

    I must stress that I do not have any ties to Tamworth Camping only as a customer.

    I assume you can only get the cheaper awnings by ringing as the one on the website is £224 inc vat plus delivery.

    I agree. We have the same awning for our Autoquest 100 (basically the same as Avantgarde 100).

    Sorry to hijack but while on the subject of Elddis can I just ask a quickie please whilst on the subject of Awnings
    Ours is a Elddis 115 and according to one of the salesman at the NEC we cannot attach an awning unless we get one fitted externally as such. The guttering etc does not allow you just to thread one through. Would one of those Movelite XL allow erection :Eeek: just by throwing the straps over. If not is there anything about what would give me something to buffer up to the M/H to give me extra space.
    .
    Thanks

    In a word, YES, it comes with long straps that you throw over the van and peg out on the other side

    I fitted a rail as my roll out awning prevented a close fit .. an easy job to do

    Our van has a J rail fitted (don't know if that was standard as we bought it at 2 years old). The Khyam awning comes with plastic figure 8 sections which slide onto the awning and then clip to the J rail.

    I think the main difference between the Khyam and the Movelite is that the former is rather larger (approx 3m x 3m with 1m attachment "tunnel" to the van).

    Movelite XL

    We ordered ours over the phone. Here is a pic of the one we are getting. This is our Friend's van and awning.

    We have a Movelite Viagra, its self erecting.
    Great for summer use but does flop about a bit during colder seasons.:Wink:

    Sorry Jim, my mistake. I thought the Movelite was smaller. Turns out they are the same size :Smile:

    Edit: After looking at the Leisure Shop web site I realise I'd been thinking it was the Porchlite.
