Looking for a privacy room for my 4m Fiamma Awning
Which is the best
.....for speed and ease of erecting?
....cost?
....any good suppliers (who will fit)?

Anything more than about 20 mins and I wouldn't use it

It depends on your needs Barry, we opted for a store tent and a home made front panel ... made a side panel later but rarely use it. (saved a fortune:winky:)

The store tent only comes into use if we stay for more than a couple of days...

Good Morning Barry,

It will depend on what Fiamma awning you have fitted, if its a Zip you can get a Zip Privacy, if not and you want the zip type privacy you will need to add that to the awning, not a big deal.

If not, cheapest option is to buy the front and side blockers, easy to fit and take down.

Give Darren or John a ring and they can advise you further and supply them if you want to go ahead.

Regards

Peter

Good Morning Ron,

You will not be able to fit a zip to your awning unless you have the zip part on it.

Clip system:
With the new Clip system the side panels of the Privacy are quickly and easily joined with the fabric of the awning.
Just place the clip system in the corner of the casebox and the leg support of the front panel.
Then the upper part is fastened together with the lower part. In order to guarantee a perfect seal the fabric of the awning is blocked between the lower and upper rail by screwing the internal knobs.
Insert the side panels into the rail of the clip system.
The front panel of the Privacy Room is inserted into the rail of the front of the awning and with the YKK zip it is then joined with the side panel of the Privacy.
The clip system is also delivered with two vertical rafters that are fixed between the side walls and the vehicle walls and the side sponges.
The new patented system uses the sandwich technology and is made of anodized aluminium.
It is adaptable for awnings with a maximum extension of 250cm. (when closed the set of tent pegs takes up only 120 cm).
The clip system is standard delivered with the Privacy Rooms; it is however possible to buy it separately in order to use it on Privacy Rooms produced after 2005.


---------------------------------------------​

ZIP
The innovative Fiamma ZIP system joins the side panels to the fabric of the awning with two special sturdy YKK zips.

The awning is transformed into a completely enclosed room in a few minutes. Standard delivered with: the awning (canopy available in Blue Ocean or Deluxe Grey colour), installation brackets, one front panel with door and two side panels with screened windows that can be opened. Also included are Rapid Set aluminium tension poles, one central tension rafter excluding the 250 cm model, vehicle skirting, London curtains for all the windows and storage bag Mega Bag.
-------------------------------------------​

We have a DVD that shows you how it all assembles, if you would like a free copy, please give us a ring.

Whilest at Stratford, Iwas parked next to a guy in a HYMER, with a Fiama zip on awning. Lets just say had it been his fly and in a desperate way, he would never have made it, :ROFLMAO::Blush:
As I said 5 min and I am sat with my brew.

We had a Fiamma Zip room with our previous van and have an Omnistor Clip on Safari Room with the new van - the Zip room, while not exactly quick to put up, was at least intuitive and nice once assembled. The Omnistor clipon job we have never managed to use - no instructions, completely impossible to work out and has been a total waste of money as it lies unused in its bag. As the awning has too - it's not right and despite the ministrations of the awning party at the opening meet, it does not open or close properly. I would never recommend either Omnistor awnings, their safari rooms or for that matter, the awful supplying dealer, BCS of Herne Bay who have failed to respond to any correspondence about the issue. :Sad:

Go with Fiamma is my advice. At least it worked as it should.:RollEyes:

I cannot imagine anyone who could pass her Ham Radio licence cannot put up a simple Omni Safari.

Oi!! sometimes the simplest of things are impossible to those who are used to dealing with complications, say Confucius!!!! :ROFLMAO:
The Radio Licences thus far have been a nice array of physics and maths, altogether far more academic (and intuitive) than Omnistor's lack of any instructions for their Safari Room!! :Eeek:
Seriously, we've not worked out how to use the thing and who knows, given the appalling treatment from the dealer, some vital bits may be missing anyway!!:Cool:

well over 5 years
what on earth do you want a privacy awning room for

If you use it at night (if its anything like a tent, you need to keep the light off or everyone can sit outside and enjoy the shadows


:ROFLMAO:



Just lock the camper doors rofl xxxxxxxxx

Isnt the whole idea of a motorhome that you just park up and enjoy rather than put up tents etc xxxxxx



no offence meant

:Doh:
well i never a person having trouble with an omnistor , cannot understand ! you bought in the 1st place if you do not know the fundementals of these awnings , we were at shepton mallet 2 years ago and the couple next to us bought a fiamma , first week he told me the inner sprocket broke , they replaced this free of charge , guess what lol!! it broke again , plus it was leaking into the roof lining , so watch it , what i think is you get all type,s of dealers who just want the cash , end of !!.
i like the omnistor , i think it,s great . works well when you know how , lol!!. i go the easy way , if i have a prob with a product i go direct , they do it 1st time and give you prezzie,s saying thank you and we are very sorry ,
beside s i have to think the support that fiamma are getting here some thing very fishy??. :ROFLMAO:
LOL!!!.
i could tell you now i would not hesitate to buy some thing i wanted even if it did not have the instructions ,
it is only common sense and time , we have many time,s gone to shows! site,s ! ect, ect, and you will always find some one struggling with these type,s of things and you help out don,t you it,s the fun of it , and being social . and by the end of this when every thing is up and happy they say god !did not know it was going to be as easy as this , and half of them had the instuctions to start with .
have fun and always have a plan ,
happy camping , have fun .

Seeing the amount of awnings doubling up as secondary water storage systems, after the heaviy rain at Stratford, I think a water butt would have more use than stick on panels!:ROFLMAO:
