    I bloody hate windbreaks, we have been through three in the last 30 Months. They only seam to work when the wind isn't blowing. Im not bothered about being sheltered from the wind, but I like to cook outside on the Cadac or Barbie and the wind can play havoc with both. So anyone got suggestions for a windbreak that actually performs the function for which it was designed? :thumb:

    Jill made a windbreak for us out of the same sort of polyester voile fabric used for the windblocker awning attachments. It has worked OK when we've used it so far.

    Why is that only the Brits love windbreaks. I visit many campsite sin the "continent" each year for a guide and I only ever see Brits with them!

    Are we so afraid that someone will see us when outside the van or is it because we wish to defend our territory from invaders?

    Jormax

    I bought a Jormax recently, expensive but great. It appears bomb proof!! I love the fact there are no guy ropes :thumb:

    i think only the old fashioned wooden stake ones you can drive into the ground realy offer much protection from the wind , in the same way that global warming has become climate change many wind breaks are now officially called breeze blockers

    Hi,I agree with jormax windbreaks,mine is 3 years old and has never let me down expensive but you only buy it once,most people have never heard of them but they supply outside events ie motorcycling -running etc,they are the best you can buy,and is far better than the cheapies,no guy ropes and will withstand any wind,regards H:BigGrin:

    Second vote for WindBreak Leisure, had our panels for a couple of years now & still in as new condition, sturdy aluminium frames with no guy ropes and a solid gate, We leave our panels built up so quick & easy to erect on site and the dogs love having their own enclosure to wander in & out of the van.
