    Can someone please help me make up my mind?!!!!

    Our old van had a windout blind which we used to good effect as a sunshade (when we had some!) with windbreaks around we were reasonably snug from the wind. But I am a chilly little soul and it doesnt take much for me to run for cover. Our new (to us) van doesnt have a blind and I cant make up my mind whether to have one fitted or buy a movelite XL. We do have a Sunn Camp Nova which is very good, but we havent used it much as it is too small to fit on the van and is very heavy and, takes a while to put up although very stable in high winds. How easy to erect and, how stable is the Movelite?

    What would you spend your money on? there is a difference of about £400! Im getting goggle-eyed trying to think :Eeek: Bit difficult too when you have a pea for a brain.

    Hi Lily, I have only just seen this post, sorry you have not got a response so far. In my experience, the wind out awning wins every time. I know they are expensive, but that convenience has to be paid for. I have a drive away awning, I paid £600 and have used it only once. But the wind out awning gets used all the time, even in the rain, especially in the rain.:Smile:

    Go for the wind out, and if you feel you need walls you can add them in the way of a safari room to your windout awning.

    Oh and welcome to the fun:thumb:

    Lily, welcome to the fun

    I think there are 2 answers to your question depending on how you use your MH.

    1. With an RV or large MH you are unlikely to want to drive off site once set up & so as Jim saya roll out is the simplest & add sides if you wish.

    2. A smaller MH may want to go off site, as we do, & then a drive away awning is the best answer. The best answer is have both, but at a cost. :Eeek:
