Chinon Awning  - Our Thoughts!

On arrival, having never received a brand new awning before, I gulped by the size of the box and wondered how I was going to transport it. But upon opening the box I realised that in fact the awning was packed away very compactly and was not going to be a problem transporting it.

The instructions made the putting up of the awning easy going detailing all poles and their positions so the first job was to lay all poles on the ground in the positions where they would fit into the scheme of things.  Next job was to feed the awning onto the channel on the caravan, this is a two person job, as with pretty much all awnings, but a single caravanner could do this with a little more effort.  The awning is one complete piece so, although lightweight, did feel heavy when trying to pull it round the channel.

Once we had fed it onto the van we attached the framework, the awning has hanging cords for the end of the poles to sit in and then rubber suckers on the end so that they go against the caravan and avoid scratching the side panels, this also eliminates the need for extra fastners to be fitted to van.

The framework was simple and easy to erect and adjusting the poles to the right length was an easy job resulting in a completed awning standing against the van in about 20 minutes. We then had to peg out the awning which took no time.

I found that by having no removable panels, apart from being able to open the two front doors and roll up the whole of the front of the awning, that during the height of summer it could get rather hot in there when left for a whole day.

The two side panels are frosted meaning that the only windows that you are able to see out if are the two front ones, this limits your visibility when sitting in it and you cannot see who is approaching the caravan from the front or back, what this did offer though was great privacy without the need for curtains or blinds.

All in all, the purpose of an awning is to keep one dry and create an additional living space when away from home, the Chinon awning met both these criteria and ultimately it did the job that is was designed to do very well.

The Chinon awnings are a great value for money awning and are very reasonably priced to suit to the smaller budgets. if you require an awning for your van and cannot justify spending hundreds of pounds on a brand new one then the Chinon range could be for you, affordable, spacious and more than adequate for the job it was designed to do.
