    Hi Everyone,

    we are first timers with a privately converted Citroen relay van.
    We have a Movelite XL family driveaway awning.

    Does anyone know how to install a door stop to prevent the door opening so far that it tears the awning - which I have already done and need to repair? :cry:

    Thanks

    Hi and welcome to the forum, you need some form of preventer strap/chain or bit of string. Experiment to get the length.

    Provided there is enough 'slack' in the awning material, you could fit a wheel on the top of the door.. they are sold by most caravan dealers for this very purpose ..

    I got round that prob by adjusting the awning leg height-praps I was just lucky that it worked.
