    Morning
    We have recently changed vans and the new van has the Fiamma awning.
    Our last van came with the Safari room which we have kept.
    Can anyone advise us if they are compatible or if there is such a thing as an adapter that " make " them fit together!
    Thanks for any help
    Chris

    Thanks, I'm sure they are but will get the tape measure out to be certain. The end poles fit into the rail OK but it's the other end that we are not too sure about.
    Thanks

    Thank you both for your suggestions. They are both the same size. Spoke to a couple of Fiamma Dealers who said they are not compatible and there isn't an adapter that makes them fit. There is an adapter for fitting the awning to various vehicles.
    Then spoke to Rose Awning who are an Thule/Omnistor dealers, very helpful and although they don't fit directly at the pole end it's not too difficult to make them!
    That's another job for the OH to do this week!
    Thanks again for those who replied
    Chris

    On a related note I may have to use the MH to sell stuff from at an upcoming collectors' event, and being June it'll probably be raining. All I have is the awning at present so I'd like a bit of side protection for my gear. Any suggestions for inexpensive options, for example what are those huge clips called that I see people attaching extra coverings with? Thanks in advance.
