    Hi All
    I'm looking to purchase a windbreak and just wondered if there were any recommendations out there as there seems to be a plethora to choose from. We have got a safari room but can't see us ever using it.
    So what are your windbreak tips and advice and I don't mean no beans :ROFLMAO:

    Cheers :thumb:

    the best windbeaks i have seen are the Issabella type but they are not cheap. or Jormax.

    we use the the www.windblockers.net ones and they are exceptional but again a full set net cheap. if you buy any get the wrap around ends.

    We sold our safari room as it does not fit our new van and bought windblockers instead. Fabulous concept. We only have the wraparound ends which do a great job.

    We purchased a three section windbreak in Spain earlier this year.
    It has the rigid top poles between sections and also clear sections in each panel so that you can still see out when sitting down.
    We find it comfortable to sit behind it when the sun is shining but the wind is blowing (that is if the sun ever shines again). We don't always want the fiamma awning wound out.

    We bought Windblocker sides and front to use with our awning but sometimes we find it a bit noisy to use the canopy when it is windy.

    So, we decided a few weeks ago to make a windbreak using fabric similar to that used by Windblocker. See This Thread and the one linked from it.
