We bought one of these last year and used it all last season, and still going strong so far this year it is really quick to put up has plenty of space, but if you do have any rain it can pool in the roof a bit. Also as there is no side opening you have to use the front door all the time and you can get a bit tangled in the guy ropes, and could be an issue if pitching on sites with small pitches. Also when pegging out you have to get it just so otherwise the zips can be a bit tough to close on the door. All in all though it has been a decent awning which has suited our needs but next time I think I would rather go for the Kampa fiesta OK a little bit more money but the additional side doors would swing it for me.

we had one last year was quick to put up etc but same as feebee the only vent is the door which is a pain esp with 2 dogs.

then in fairly light wind one of poles bent big time, riversway were great they said could replace or choose something else, we went for outrevolution compactlite 325, much better take bit longer to put up and stronger, plus much easier to vent
