    Having used a Fiamma f45 awning on our MH, I'm considering attaching a very short second-hand one to the back wall of our house to keep any rain off if I want to do small DIY jobs outside - I don't have any sheltered work space available at present.

    I'm going to need one that rolls up into a holder that's bolted to the wall, where the legs are hinged at the corners of the front edge, are stored within the width of the canopy and swing outwards into the upright position. I've seen a Caravanstore item that nearly fitted the bill, but its legs had to be extended out beyond the width of the canopy and swung inwards, and that won't work for my purposes.

    Basically, a very short Fiamma-style MH awning - maybe something off a small camper van.

    Any suggestions of make/model or items for sale anywhere in NW England? Ta in advance.

    A folding gazebo is too complicated and I wouldn't have the storage space for it - I want to be able to hoik it out of its holder on the wall then shove it back again in a few seconds.

    I'll look at the Omnistor option, thanks.

    Maybe not deep enough for my purposes but thanks for the suggestion there.
