Hi
We have a Bessie, do you mean along the underside of the van, I screwed awning rail strip underneath and use caravan skirt bought from caravan shop to slid in when we have the awning up in Spain etc. Pete

Ps a pal had one surface mounted with velcro but it looked a mess.

Did you manage to get the rail around the wheel hub or do you just have a draught?
I fixed the rail upto the arch on both sides so the skirt crosses the wheel it leaves a small gap at the top, To cover this I use a seperate piece which I stick to the side of the van with a couple of suckers then tuck the bottom end behind the skirt making a covered wheel arch, I hope I have explained it clearly.

Thanks for that" now it makes sense, as when I called a company earlier in the week ' they said that Bessacarr put their logo on the awning and that I would need to find out the maker, so now need to do more investigations" Boy " they know how to make things difficult" ? ? Or is it just me ,

These look amazing" just what you need up here in Bonnie Scotland to allow sitting out' looking to the distant horizon, with a wee dram, or two ;") without the dreaded midges, but Patricia is wanting the room with windows to the three sides and door that can all close over at night for privacy.
