    Before too long I may be using the MH to sell stuff from at a collector's event, and being June in the UK it'll probably be peeing it down. I'll be setting out my wares under my Fiamma F45 awning canopy, but I don't have any side panels, and I don't want to pay a fortune for any either.

    Have you ever sold stuff from under your MH canopy, and if so, what cheap options have you come up with for keeping the glorious British summer weather out of the sides?

    Tarpaulins were my first thought but if it is windy you will have a problem with them, but probably also with the awning itself!

    If you are on grass a cheap beach windbreak or two could be another option.

    Have a look on eBay any old omnistor or fiamma room can be made to fit, I have had a few cut to fit perfectly by a sailmaker for very little cost.
    Best to buy the type that have the frame runners rather than those that clip on.

    Hi Magicsurfbus
    As an aside think about insurance. You will be using it in connection with a business so may need business insurance.
