We tried that trick Tango, but then had the added faff of trying to zip the panels back into the main canvas whilst it was flapping about dangling from the awning rail. Trying to erect it just as a Veranda type porch without sides makes guagaging the distances for pegging out more difficult, and results in much upegging and adjusting of peg positions.

Last time we used it down in Norfolk last August we had a very nice man come over to help us erect it after he spotted us struggling, he was very knowledgable and a retired Caravan club warden, he advised that erecting in one piece was best for Air awnings, which is how he did ours.

We took several photos of ours with a view to selling on our return, but then my blooming tablet died on me before l had chance to upload them, and l lost my pictures. Just waiting for some help to do one final erection for a new set of pictures to be taken, then it will be posted up on one of the internet sales sites and hopefully be gone.


Just love to be out amoungst Nature and Wildlife

The air awning we bought (not a Kampa) comes all in one piece. The end sections are connected down one side, and only unzip up the other side and across the top. You need it all complete and zipped up anyway to peg it out, as Julia says above. It's only a porch, but I found it harder to put up than our poled full awning we have now, because you can put that up in sections.

Best Regards,
