Not always expensive, we have just got our renewal from Safeguard at 326 everyone else is coming in at well over 400 and most don't include breakdown.
My parents also use Safeguard and broke down in SW France, they were brilliant and offered a repair within 3 days but ended up providing a hire car and bringing the MH back to the UK for a cheaper repair.

Romahome Awnings

Hi Mayblossom, My wife & I have had five Romahome Motor Caravans in our time, including three based on the Honda Acty and two based on the C15. The canvas awning, heavy but solid, fits on the back, over the rear door. It is a Free Standing awning, meaning that you set it up and are then able to leave it behind to 'mark your pitch '. Set up the corner pieces first, adding the long side poles and to them add the first uprights. The uprights are in two pieces, the bottom half being fitted by lifting the whole thing upwards, definitely a 'two- man operation.' The thing to do is set up the framework, then ''oik'' the canvas over the framework, then use tent pegs to keep it on te ground. I believe the poles are spring loaded, so keep themselves together.
Best of luck. Jack & Patty, Cornwall.
PS, If you are stuck, go see Ant at Avon Motor Caravans, just south of Bristol Airport.

ah! that explains why i couldnt find any fixings on the sides of the body. It looks like it could be pretty big once up, so could be good for putting bikes under at night, apart from giving shelter during the day.thanks very much for the info.
all the best
