    We are picking our first motorhome next week and are looking for a drive away awning.
    What is decent make that won't blow down with the first breeze? Also could anyone recommend where we can get one at a decent price.
    We have a 2008 rollerteam 500.
    All help, advice and abuse will be appreciated.

    Welcome to Fun (y)
    You have opened a can of worms :LOL: There's a host of posts about this on here if you use the search facility.
    It's all down to personal preference,some love driveaways-some hate them.
    I personally would only use a porch awning,and that only for stays of over a week.

    I bought a drive away awning just after buying my first MH. I sold it after one season.

    Then I bought a safari room and sold that after one season.

    I'd never buy either again.

    We have a Quest Elite drive away porch awning which we find great. Quite quick to put up and has withstood some gale force winds.
    However we don't tend to use it that much (I think most Motorhomers don't use awnings much) unless we are staying somewhere for at least 4 or 5 days. We got ours at a special price at one of the shows.
