    Hi , looking at buying a fiamma privacy room and just need some advice on what size.
    The fiamma awning from underside To floor is 250, so can I buy a medium which is 225-250 ? Not sure if that allows for the skirt the large is 251-280 .
    Thanks Diane

    Thinks carefully about the privacy rooms.. You see so many people trying to sell them once they find they are heavy etc.
    If your pitching up for a while then great but if its only for a few days at a time then consider something like a porch awning..
    Kampa motor rally, something like that..

    Check out selling sites and ebay as you often see these rooms for sale..

    Hi Diane .. I have one of these that I bought for my old van. My understanding is that the small / med / large is the height of the van. Assuming that you have the correct awning (Fiamma) and whether its clip etc a larger privacy room will fit a smaller van but the top / bottom of the windows will not be parallel with the ground. You are welcome to pop over and have a look - pm me if you would like to and we can make a plan. Rob

    The Kampa Motor Rally Air inflatable awning is the way to go. We erected ours some five months ago now at the start of our winter visit to Spain. During this time the awning has been subjected to a deluge of torrential rain which lasted for 24 hours. After the rain left it was buffeted by 60 mph gusts of wind throughout the duration of our visit. It has withstood all that the Spanish winter could possibly have thrown at it. During this time it has stood solid as a rock. Not a cheap item by any means, but in my opinion it has been well worth the expense..
