Have faith.
     We recently bought a replacement awning for our trailer tent - and had it delivered at our own expense, all the way down from bonny Scotland. On arrival, we found that the complete front panel was missing.
I contacted the seller who told me he was away for a few days - the alarm bells started ringing.
Fair play to him, he emailed me as soon as he returned to say he had found it under the seats and would post it down to me at his expense.
I haven't yet received it but have no reason to doubt him. He has been straight and honest throughout the transaction.
Hopefully ours will arrive tomorrow
Hope yours does too

Good news after all. If only he had been honest about it you wouldn't have had the aggro. Weather might be better this weekend and you'll get a chance to have a proper play with your new toy.

Have fun.

Rob

Does anyone know how many parts there are to the awning lining. Trying to work out if the front part is missing or we're just looking at it all wrong!

Usually the lining is a 1 piece affair, with the wardrobe/ toilet area attached to the lining.
There should be plastic pole clips on one side, probably 4/5 down the middle.

With a separate plastic piece that goes over the kitchen area to protect the roof lining.

Sure that someone on hear has a similar model and will be able to give a more exacting answer.

Best regards,

Tony

The Cheverny roof lining for the main cabin is one piece, took my ages to work out how it went. I had all the wardrobe and kitchen bit twisted and it drove me mad.

There should be 3 parts altogether, the small lining for the cabin, large lining for the awning and there is a small PVC piece that goes over the kitchen.

Again, take a look at the second pic in my gallery, that roof lining with the wardrobe is one piece, you can just about see the PVC bit above the kitchen.

When I was trying to work out how it fitted, I thought the hexagonal part at the front was missing, but it was all one piece and fit perfectly when we put the tent up

Thanks for that, was looking at it spread out on the living room floor thinking something was missing!

Planning on booking something for Easter fairly local so we can have a good play.

I would buy some elastic cord, when we got ours out all the cord that held the curtains flush to the windows had lost its elasticity.

I got it from Wilkies and it only took me about an hour to replace and looks much better and holds all the curtains snugly in place
