    Hi all
    Have just bought ourselves a compass avantgarde 200 and looking to buy a driveaway awning. Can anyone advise on what would be suitable.We have a fiamma pull out attached.
    Regards ,Sandra

    Hi Sandra,
    There's plenty of choice here-http://www.riverswayleisure.co.uk/
    We bought a 'driveaway' -found it great if we were staying a few nights on a campsite,but that's not what we do ,so found it a hassle to put up for just 1 or 2 nights and then have to wait for the dew to dry off it in morn before we could pack up and move on.
    On our last trip to France we didnt use it once in 10 weeks.
    Having said that-we're keeping it for when we go to Meets where we will be there for a few days.:Laughing:

    Why hasn't the link come up as a link-you'll have to copy and paste

    Hi Sandra,

    Theres a selection here for you to browse and ponder over, all with Funsters discount, if you want to attatch it to the Fiamma awning front rail you would need the adaptor kit otherwise just throw the securing straps over the top of the van (Movelite ones)

    Hope this helps

    Peter

    I had a Movelite XL .. good quality and not too difficult to erect.

    We bought it for winter use.. great place to store wet gear and to keep the icy blasts at bay when the hab door was opened.

    I tried the throw over straps but it didn't seal well on the van wall due to the roll out awning, so I fitted an awning channel on the van..

    Winter 2009.

    We bought a Khyam Motordome Excelsior in 2006 because it was one of the few available tall enough for the J rail fitted to the van.

    There is a larger choice now - and you will probably have more options having the Fiamma to fix to - but check before buying that the one you plump for is of appropriate height.
