    not a chance! when the new dog arrives(staffie) it will be trained to hate cats so i will not deny it a bit of sport if a cat enters my awning:LOL:

    Make sure you have a space in your garage to keep it, guaranteed to spend more time there than anywhere else :D

    i agree the one i have now get used very little perhaps 2 weeks a year,but its handy to have it(y)
    but the one i have is a bit of a hassle to put up (fiberglass poles) hence the blow up

    So was i following a pleathora of positive reviews.
    Followed by another run of posts decrying their virtues saying you have to be super level with dead level ground in front to use them.
    I understnd the logic behind that view but is it a fact? We know that pole variaties have a modicome often useless amount of adjustment for sloping ground
    But it is alledged that the air types have absolutly none!
    Creating nightmare senarios with front ground clearances.
    Too short and it has a huge gap too long and you have to crease the suport tubes to peg it, I can see the logic in that too
    So who's right and who's wrong???????

    I have the SunnCamp air volution motor air 325xl. At Bagwell Farm this year I was anything but level without any issues but that might be because it's a drive away. They certainly seem better in strong winds than those with poles.

    We bought a Kama rally pro air 290 this year as we want a bit of extra dog room whilst in Spain on longer stays easy to put up haven't used it in anger yet but it's made well and comes with bag and pump.

    I had a vango kela.Great awning but took up a great deal of locker room and was heavy.Decided it was more hassle than it was worth.No doubt I will get nostalgic for another awning soon and waste even more cash.

    We have that one and very happy with it. We have used it several times now. It's great having the extra space when staying for 3/4 days especially when the weather is wet and evening get cooler. You do need to keep the instructions for the motor, if you buy it as an extra, to hand as its a bit confusing to start off but we are used to it now. We fit it to the front rail of our awning, some people fit it gaps at the MH end but doesn't really both us and despite a very heavy storm at Twin Lakes it remained dry inside.
    Enjoy make sure you get the MH version...

    Decathlon are selling a huge blow up tent for £90 that can be set up alongside your Moho so you can drive away and come back to it.
    More use for touring than ones that look more suitable for caravans.
