Another awnings type question, but has anyone tried this type of product?

 


It’s more canopy than an awning. I’m looking for something quick and easy to pitch and light weight but sturdy. At least as sturdy as a gazebo anyway. My concern would be the depth though. It is 3 meters. Seems a little excessive. I would prefer 2.5 or less.

I have not seen one before and have to say it looks good for being able to pitch quickly.

I saw a guy using one like that on a V/W in Killaloe, he had it connected over the van and out over the rear open doors and later he turned it to also cover the rear and sliding doorway.
it looked really handy.

Well I ordered one from Charles Camping along with a magnetic driveaway awning attachment. The kit has arrived. I have not tried it out yet. Only got as far as trying the magnetic strip which is just not a runner. My roof is to irregular and not flat enough to accept it. Pity. It’s a nice idea and I am sure would work well on the right roof.

This leaves me on the look out for some awning rail c-channel that I can glue to my roof. Any suggestions for where to get this in Galway city area?
