    I think this is a follow up thread related to sizing, they had an awning delivered to Spain, but it does not fit and only measures 250 not 260

    Something like that anyway

    Yes, Jim suggested I pack it up and send it back to them, with a charge for postage.

    Unfortunately we are in Spain so it is more difficult. I have read on another thread that this is a problem which has happened before and that Kampa are aware, however Ian of Awnings Direct say that Kampa know nothing of this incorrect labelling.

    I wanted advice from someone who had a 260L and had erected it successfully. Our awning rail is only 256 but when we put the 260L up the bottom corner with the triangle of skirt was about 6 cms from the floor. If our motorhome had been 268 cms it would have been 18 cms off the floor!

    The 260L is supposed to cover motorhomes from 250 - 270cms.

    I will find Peter's telephone number and give him a ring.

    I should have mentioned, when the Kampa arrived the pump was missing, as well as the instructions.

    Awnings Direct wanted up to erect the awning, peg it down and then send them photographs. It is difficult to erect an air awning without a pump.

    Good news, we are not crazy!!!

    I have just spoken to Johns Cross and the young man explained that the awning must be one of the early ones, where the sizes were "all over the place". They had a number of these faulty awnings and sent them all back to Kampa.

    I have informed Awnings Direct and am yet again waiting for them to reply and hopefully collect and return this to Kampa.

    Thanks for help and advice

    we have had our 260L awning up this weekend , our awning rail is 250cm to the ground and i had a very small gap at the corners , but it fits well around the sides as you have the large mud walls and adjustable pegging ladders and straps

    do you have the 2 tags that the rubber ladders for pegging down attach to or just one tag as when i am on chocks i have to put the ladders on the longer of the 2 straps

    this is not an Air awning

    As the OPs previous awning was lost in strong winds and this is a replacement for it, it would appear that it may not be any more robust to use it in that type of weather than the original one was! The brochure from the link above says:

    Hi, We have always had Kampa awnings, the iadvantage of the Air is that there are no poles to damage the motorhome and if the wind starts to get bad we can just pull the plug and it will gracefully deflate! or so we have been told!!
