So when we bought the bus it came with a few extras, a retro style drive away awning and a sun screen type.

The Retro type drive away awning we tried on a trip to North Devon a few weeks ago.

and the Sun Shade came in very useful while in the New Forest this weekend.

The sun shade is great and very quick to put up / down, once you know how, I didnt have any instructions and the previous owner had left something incorrectly attached to the feet which confused me, can see this getting plenty of use though!

Think if I was you I'd be putting some tie downs on that shade!!! First gust of wind it'll be like a sail.

We have just bought and started using the Kyham Compact. No troubles so far.

Does the awning connecting strip interfere with the roof rack? Also, what ladder is that?

Anyone got experience of Vango palm or Faros awnings? UK holidays this year and think one might make for more comfortable evenings....

Hi Guys, Does anyone know whether this drive away will fit a standard bus?

We used to have a Kyam air beam but now use a Glawning, much cooler...

I had a Westy awning that is well used and a bit tired. I got the chance to buy a much nicer example and jumped at the chance. It’s almost like new and I love it. :D
