Awning

Postby CCD123 » 04 Feb 2018, 14:42

Are awnings available in the UK for a Grand Hiace?
Any help appreciated.

We bought a Granvia camper last year and use a Vango Galli driveaway awning with it, we were using the storm straps to hold the awning to the camper but I am now using magnets sewn into the joining tunnel to do the job, the only slight drawback is that when the sliding door is fully open it does press against the awning, i’ll Have to fashion something that holds the sliding door in a semi open state :-)

Thank you for your reply. Sound fine even with the minor shortcomings. Will check out the Vango Galli.

We looked at the whole Vango range but the smallest one (as the guy at the motorhome place pointed out) has no canopy so if it’s raining when you open the zip/door rain will enter as the sides are at an angle , the next up has a canopy but you enter the awning at the right of it and the camper (once inside) to the left so I asked where I could put a bedroom that would let me enter the awning and then enter the camper, you can’t sadly, on one side a bedroom would block access to the awning and the other access to the camper, so, we thought sod it and bought the “big galli” which upto now has been great, just be aware they do one that fits to the offside/drivers side which is no use if you only have a sliding door on the passenger side :-)

If you like inflatables, the Westfield Aquila 320 has a side porch and an end porch and is very sturdy. Look on ebay.
