Does anyone have any experience of marrying a lightweight awning like an Outdoor evolution Porchlite to a folding camper?

 I have just returned from a sodden week in cornwall and the full awning took an age to put up and take down. From now on i will only be going on short 2-3 day trips and so want something just big enough to store the table and a couple of chairs with a quick put up time.

My camper is a Pennine Pullman 2005.

I have seen a couple of posts for a Pathfinder and custom alterations by someone named "Lisa". Can anyone shed any light on the subject?

Yes Lisa will be able to sort you out with a lightweight awning for your Pullman.
No doubt she will be along later to advise you

hi katkins,  we are  thinking the same as you, bought a pennine pathfinder last year and  find the full awning is a chore to put up for short breaks, after researching the uk campsite web, a couple of members suggested buying a porch awning and there is a company very near to us in bolton, lancs, that would put a zip onto your lightweight awning for approx 50, there is a company on e-bay called leisure outlet that are selling  decent sized porch awnings for a 260xl &129   or  the larger 360xl for 149 free p&p,  the company that would match a zip up to your camper is t v s, i spoke with graham who owns tent valeting services in farnworth nr bolton, today and it would be no problem for them, we were unsure about buying a non pennine awning because of the attaching it to the folding camper as it has no rail like a caravan, just the zip, i think you will find this a cheaper option, than the one that is specially made, plus it is a smart looking awning which you can choose the colour to match your camper, please contact if you need any advise about t v s, good luck, paul

Cheers for pics. Awning looks very nice. Probably too big for our Pullman though.

I'm afraid we are on a tight budget so we are going with the TVS option. Bought a used awning for 60 and TVS are altering it for 75. Transport costs 25. Total cost 160. We have to mark where zip goes so going to offer up awning to camper this weekend. Will keep posted on how it goes.

I know this is an old thread but how did it go with getting an easier to put up awning?

I would like to get a canopy as we will only use our FC for 2/3 nights? Thanks

I think you may have had some replies on your recent thread asking about mattresses and sun canopy.
