    HI All, does anyone have any recommendations for the supply and fit of a Thule awning, we are based on the south coast, but are willing to travel for a good job and a reasonable price. I am a little surprised that you can get substantial discounts at shows but if you are not at a show there is little interest of doing a deal. Many thanks in advance.
    Mike

    I had a quote from rose awnings for a thule omnistor and if they would have had the colour fabric I wanted I would have gone with them but ended up having one from my local go european dealer but ended up fitting it myself .... with a helping hand from Tonka, if your able to get someone to give you a hand for the very final part of the fitment its really easy to do, 4 mounting brackets that have to be sikaflex to the roof then a couple of screws in each bracket ..leave for 24hrs to set then this is the part where you need 2 sets of ladders and nother pair of hands as these awnings are pretty heavy, Tonka came to my aid for the final lift but it only takes about 5 minute to carry it to the roof and drop it on the mounts, 4 nuts, 1 on each bracket to tighten up an the jobs done, saved myself £250 for what is less than an hrs work. If your capable its not hard at all, i found fitting solar panels more of a challenge to be honest.

    Sorry they are at Wimborne in Dorset. And Johns Cross are Fiamma dealers (but very good too).
