I’ve been thinking of a set of windblockers for the summer and have a few questions ...
- how quick are they to put up/take down? We’re unlikely to spend more than 1-2 nights in any location.
- what do you recommend .. a full set of std, a corner or the Gemini?
- do you need any other bits and pieces to make them work?

And whilst I’m asking, do most folk use guy ropes or storm straps on the Fiamma wind out awning?

Thanks

We have the corner set with inner membrane. Takes less than 10mins to put up. ideal for limited privacy
and keeping out the very hot mid day sun. Much quicker than a full awning.

We have a standard set - 10 mins on a bad day

AND YES storm straps are a must They also do those too to fit with the Windblocker we got an add on set as soon as we saw them
but make sure you know your channel size as there are two sizes available

if the awning is out, we always use the tie down kit!!, expensive repair if the wind gets up and launches your awning!
