BEWARE, itís not a light item and itís very easy to drop it, you need someone holding each end.

Andy does it need sealing when refitting ?

I never bothered because the awning was heavily recessed into the sidewall of the Autotrails I had.

What surprised me was the size of the securing bolts!! 10mm spanner is all thatís needed.


Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
