    Hello all
    I am new to this site and just wondered if you could tell me which awning would be best for our Bessacarr E444 2013.

    I tried the Fiamma and the drive away awning and found them to bulky to carry around. I am thinking of buying a Kampa motor Rally but I think I will look around and ask a few questions first..

    If yours has a wind out canopy then you may find my awning panels of interest. We use them for leisure and for our business at show. They are very lightweight and are 100% waterproof. You can see more at www.parrotsol.co.uk

    Thanks for your reply
    We have a wind out awning on the motorhome and I have tried the fiamma clip system, nice awning but found the door entry was at the back end of the motorhome and we was dragging all the mud etc into the privacy room

    how bulky when packed up?
    how do they cope with the wind?
    when/ where can they be seen?

    Hi Jesport
    It was in a 6 foot bag plus poles etc and weighed about 25 to 30 kg

    My system weighs a fraction of that and packs up really small. We are in Leeds if you want to see one. We do most of the shows but not Manchester or the nec

    The 3 sides on an average room will all pack away inside a 36 x 40 x 20cm. Then you just have 2 lightweight aluminum poles and pegs.
    We used ours in wind gusts forecast up to 60kmh
    Next show Harrogate then theres Newark, Peterborough, Newbury, Stafford, Norfolk, Malvern, Lincoln

    can't comment on the specific product but Parrotsol are a very nice company to deal with :)

    No affiliation just a satisfied customer - hubby ordered from them via ebay not realising who he was ordering from, the order arrived the following day and was exactly what he wanted!

    We have a set and as said folds up very small and poles take up little space also
    Only used them a couple of times in Scotland and worked well and took 10mins max to put up

    Apologies @Steve Bourne my query to @jezport seems to have hijacked your thread, so I'm going to BUMP it hoping that someone else will be along with more answers/ ideas for you.

    ALL FUNSTERS PLEASE READ:
