Well - we put the Destiny up yesterday while the kids were still in nursery. They were very excited to see it when we picked them up and came home.

Today has been spent sewing (Mrs Endecay) and putting up the awning (1st practice). Bloomin' heck they're hard work! Especially when there is an annex. Presstuds, random ties, 'pockets' that no longer exist... Guesswork.

We have taken several pics including the recovered seating stuff and a few things for your considered opinions. I don't yet know how to put piccies on so if someone can let me know then Kevin's desire to see the "unique" annex awning can be sated.

Cheers
Neil

Mrs Endecay says she will NOT be taking orders!

Now the question. We have 'worked out' that this is the inner cover. Are we right? If not what is it?

I'm sure we'll add pics of us enjoying a holiday soon enough.

Yes - a significant achievement. Not sure we'll use it that often for short trips. Too much work!

You'll need a longer holiday to recover from putting it up. lol!

You could get a utility tent for shorter trips if needed. I guess you've seen the new thread about them.

Your second photo.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The taller flap that you have attached to the front wall. That's it the one without the pole in it.

The flap goes under the roof and is attached to the pegs on the bed side board.
The same with the corresponding flap on the other side (LHS of awning) though the flap on the other side rather than being corresponding may well be a different shape as your awning is asymmetric.
Sure you understood all that.

That awning is a barn.
Well should we all meet up you know who wins the draw to be appointed party central.
You could do the decent thing and price up the cost of a sprung floor for the dancing!

Thanks for the advice. We didn't know that about the flaps. Told you it was guesswork.

As for party central - I do have a laptop and karaoke programme and real discs so wuite possible. However, two sleeping toddlers within the unit may put paid to any night-owl ideas.

found to put the poles up easier for the awning I have colour coded the poles ends with paint red yellow blue green so when laid out I know which goes into which flower
