    Hi.
    Somehow a few days ago a bolt broke on the leg of our fiamma canopy.
    This caused it to buckle and collapse., twisting the material.
    We managed to wind the canopy in but now it is stuck and won't pull out.
    Do we have to buy a new one , or are there people that repair them.

    if the fabric is stretched, its toast. legs can be easily repaired diy and parts relatively cheap. @Johns_Cross_Motorhomes sell all fiamma products and spares and offer funsters a discount too

    The one leg is broken. I think the material may be twisted. That is why it is stuck. Would it be easy enough to take down.

    Would I be able to do it myself. Or are there people out there that do repairs.

    rose awnings will do a repair job, but by the time youve couriered it there and back plus materials and labour, its normally more cost effective to replace it. getting it off the van is a case of undoing a few screws and have 2 strong people lift it off the brackets. takes 5 minutes. my preferred option is either use a pickup truck to stand on or pull up alongside a garden wall. find it safer than 2 ladders
