    My wife and I have recently bought a brand new Benimar Mileo ,it was an impulse purchase, we have only used it twice so far but we are loving it and looking forward to lots of European miles next year. Quick question, do you know where I can buy a white c rail for the drive away awning, the only ones I have seen are aluminium.

    I've only ever seen aluminium ones in 10 years of having a motorhome so I think that's all there is available I'm afraid.

    Like Graham we've only seen aluminium. Ours reflects the bodywork colour and we don't notice it.

    a tip is to slide a thin rope into the channel to mask it off so the paint doesnt block it partially
