    Hi, I'm looking to buy a drive away awning. I want something big and quick to put up. Current favourite is a Vango AirAway Sapera tall but it's expensive at £570. Any alternatives would be greatly appreciated. Hanks, Dai :Smile:

    A member of one of the Rollerteam and Ci FB groups has just bought the Airaway and recommends it highly. It is quite expensive but seems to tick all the boxes, certainly for her. They are really popular that you have to order in advance as they sell out really fast. (I sound like a salesman for Vango)

    Movelite do a good range XL or XLF checkout the outdoor revolution site there is a video on how to erect. I have an XL but have only used it once and that was sept last year. On that occasion i needed some help but having now seen the video i am fairly confident i would be able to erect it myself if no one else about. Must admit the idea of a blow up awning is rather appealing even if the price isnt:Smile:

    Hi Peter, I rung John Cross this morning and the product is out of stock. I can order it on the website and get the 10% off but how long will it be before it's back in stock as I think they're in short supply? Thanks

    Just posting an update: we bought the Vango Airway from driveawayawnings (Obi) in Cowbridge, near Bridgend. Great service and they matched the best price I could find elsewhere. We went away last weekend and tested the awning. It went up in less than 5 minutes and then took about 20 mins to peg but I guess that's the same with any awning. Really Pleased with the space and quality. Had to top up the air in 1 of the beams which took about 20 seconds! So after the1st trip, really pleased. Next trip in a fortnights so will give a further update then:wine::wine:
