We were out on our first trip last week, opened awning and thought the same. Eventually eased back the metal cover and found the legs..... presume yours are really missing ?

Are the legs not hidden in the distal channel?

ie - the long cover that you pull out that has the canvas attached?

Apologies for asking the obvious but are you absolutely sure they are missing? They fold up into the recess on the front flap. If they aren't there then why don't you contact the seller as it's not unreasonable to expect the awning to have legs. maybe they had removed them and still have them.

Yep, they are tucked away in there somewhere near the end of the awning. I doubt someone would remove them, Maybe post a picture and we can advise more. A warm welcome to the forum to you both by the way.

M1,

OK, if they are missing you should see the brackets they are attached to ?

I can't imagine why anyone would take them.

Is it a wind out or roll out awning, 35pro instructions in the link below.

Welcome to the forum.

You can buy all Fiamma spares but they are not cheap. Have a look on eBay, often find broken awnings for sale or pre-used parts e.g. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fiamma-F45...IAAOSw6btXRAke
