    Hello I am new on here
    I have just bought a Kampa 260L and I have a swift Fiat Decato when putting up the awning
    the centre inflatable pole is over the door stopping the door from opening I am connecting it to my fiamma wind out awning
    Has anybody had simlar problems

    Thank you
    Paul

    We have the blow up awning also but our door does not clash with the 2 centre poles (3 windows version) .I guess exchange for the larger size so you dont have a centre pole ( 2 window version) or you are forced to slide it further along the wind out awning rail which is obvious and no doubt is not a option ?

    I looked at the bigger one but my fiamma is only 3.5mts long the only thing i was told to do was to get some blowup supports which would lift the centre pole up out the way
    or like you say slide it along the fiamma out the way of the centre pole

    Thanks Paul

    What I and others have found is a design flaw for the corner poles that can buckle due to no horizontal poles lower down because of the doorways/windows.A better placed guy rope along this weak point would solve the problem.Despite this we are happy with ours which folds down to fit in our overhead cuboards .NO POLES !

    Sorry I am bit late on this and apologies for hijacking the link, what have you managed to do about the buckling pole, we have a new Air 390 only bought in August doing the same thing. Kampa are asking us to rotate the inner pole inside the sleeve, but that does nothing, they (Kampa) implied I was on my own with this issue ie nobody else had mentioned it!!
