    @drago35uk came around and helped me fit the awning to the new rapido ...looks brilliant..I opted for the sports version the F45s
    Used 4 inch nails to get it set and aircraft glue to keep it in place. ..


    Really looks the part can't wait to test it out.

    Mike assures me this is the way forward in awning fitting. ..

    And do the fabric with striped paint so it looks like proper deck chair stuff.

    What's wrong with plenty of Blu-tak? You can put the awning either side then, depending on where the sun is.

    I strongly advise you don't put out your awning if is raining too hard or is too windy and remember, strong sun will fade the material...
