    Hello

    I hope someone can help me out in finding a nice simple awning for my Devon Carmargue. All I want is a sun shade similar those done by Fiamma. However as i already have a 'c' shaped channel attached the side of the van i need something to slide into the channel. The guys at Devon told me when i bought the van that what I needed was an awning in a bag that would slide into the channel when needed.. I looked around at the pickering show but all I saw was one by caravanstore attached to a East Neuke conversion.

    Does anybody know where i can find such an awning? What are the costs?. Are they hard to find because they don't work very well?

    hi dave,

    fiamma and omnistore both have a vast number of mounting options for their roll out awnings.
    they WILL have one to fit your van.
    the awnings dont come cheap though. starting price is around £230 for an omnistore 1.9 mtr long awning + fittings for your van and £280 +fittings from fiamma.

    have a look here >>click<< for omnistor

    and here >>click<< for fiamma

    scroll pages for types and prices.

    the only ones i know that slide in are by caravanstore and are quite effective and can be left in situ when travelling but they do need guyropes which can be a pain in the neck.

    hope this helps.
    john.

    Thanks for the help I will be looking for a caravanstore awning in a bag :thumb:

    Would be nice if they were to have a new colour for 2009 and then the old ones would be cheaper!!!!

    This is simple and cheap

    The EASI-CANOPI is a simple windbreak and canopy
    that can be put up and taken down in a matter of minutes.
    Simply place the two steel poles into the eyelets,
    either side of the 240cm wide canopy and then guy it out.
    The EASI-CANOPI is fully waterproof and UV protected
    and gives excellent protection against light showers or hot weather,
    without obscuring your view.
    Weighs 3.6kg

    £59-95 on our website

    Hi Dave,

    The leading edge slides into the C rail you said you had fitted, hence the suggestion.
    If you ring Darren or Jan they can explain it further.

    Regards

    Peter
