    Hi all,

    Where (other than at a motorhome show) can I buy a mini windbreak from?

    The one I mean is the short one (2-3 ft tall I think) that are very long with lots of poles. Pegged down along the edge og the motorhome to act as a draught excluder in the awning (instead of an awning skirt)

    Hope you know what I mean and can help :BigGrin:

    That's the stuff :BigGrin:

    I've sent him a message as his details are a little scant. And collection only :RollEyes:


    I want a very long one so does anyone know who it is that sells them new at the shows? Or online?

    Thanks

    (PS, I'm in a hurry :BigGrin::BigGrin::BigGrin::BigGrin:)

    Im sure there is a very good reason why you cant cut long ones in half but I cant think of it at the Mo:Doh:
    You only need a chop saw and a big pencil sharpener :RollEyes:

    I want ones with metal ends, so cutting them wont help.

    Too right - especially as I was going aroud the OTHER sides - not the one in the awning.

    Ultrasport would have cost approx. £300 to do :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    I have seen people use a bog standard windbreak cut lengthways and poles cut in half. You get about 10m for a tenner:thumb:

    I am going to do that. Bloody good idea. We have a huge gap between the wheels and cannot fit an awning rail.

    Worth the subscription this one :thumb:

    Others do away with the poles and just use the stick on poppers (stud fasteners) and then peg it down. Neater job if you don't mind half a dozen poppers along your van skirt.

    Jormax do a free standing one HERE I have one and it does the job but it's not cheap. Using the caravan one is a pain to fix if you don't have the rail fitted.

    Lilleypad (windblockers) are doing side skirts now, I think they stick on with suction pads, worth a look:thumb:
