    Management is hinting (I know my place, so I'll get one) that I should get one of them there here woven Moroccan awning mat jobs.
    I've looked at various threads, want one of the UK made ones.

    Where cab I get one?

    The first person to say "Morocco" will be killed, brought back to life then killed again.

    There is usually a trader selling them at all of the major shows.

    get to any of the shows John.

    there is a show trader who sells them, priced at around stupid money but do look good.

    got to get there early or all the big 'uns have gone.

    think this is the website.......

    BTW....if you have space they are better rolled rather than folded.

    3m x 3m only in grey £53
    3m x 4.5m only in grey £79

    2.4mtr is wide enough for most awnings and comes in pretty colours and various sizes.
    3m wide is in grey only.

    Alan,
    [HI]See OP[/HI].:moon:

    John,
    Our awnings are 3m sq, so 2.4 x 3 would probably be fine.
    Ta.

    I wouldn't want to go there, Alan.
    The last time I went was from Gibraltar as part of a scratch crew on a 100 year old schooner.
    Beautiful boat.
    Cheaper to save the travel costs and get one here, mate.
    I'm told the quality of the UK ones is better anyway, which is credible.:thumb:

    Alan,
    Thanks for the offer, it's appreciated, but 1.5 is a bit narrow.
    Also, I'm a long way from Cornwall.
    Looking at the prices on the website recommended on here the prices aint too bad for that type of mat.

    I've got a 2.5m by 3.5m you can have for £15. It's grey/black

    We're going back to Morocco in January so can replace it easy enough.

    We're in Hartlepool but we'll be at Malvern and can bring it with us if you like.

    Thanks for that, but we're not going to Malvern and we live in Lincs, a fair way from you.
    We're away setting the MH up for daughter and mate to use from the Friday of the Malvern w/e.
    We should be going to Saltfleet the previous weekend, are you going to that?

    John

    We bought one on Shrewsbury, I think (MrsS) may confirm, it was 2.5m x 3.5m and folds really well, I doubt it will fold well back into its bag once we have used it, it was £20. I have been thinking about them for some time, but, mist dont fold into a small space.
