Dandy Awning en-suite

Post by Helen on Sun 17 Jun 2012, 5:22 pm

Really simple idea but it proved popular at the recent meet. I use a 66 x 72 tab top curtain to create a private area in the awning, you could use two but I find with the wardrobe in place one is big enough. It's a handy private area where we keep the loo and clutter, we also use it to get changed. No sewing and the tab tops just slot over the roof support, this can be done easily when the awning is erected by slotting over the adjustable bar. I altered the other tab top curtain to create one to cover the whole side window.

Just a reminder that if all you want is a small loo compartment a standard pipe cutter will cut through steel tent tubes.

Small adjustable tent tubes used as a 900 support for a loo curtain. (Not used this weekend)

Have just bought some lined tab top curtains off eBay to try out with the awning to form an ensuite lol! very reasonably priced too. Don't think they'll arrive in time for this weekend, but looking forward to giving them a go.

Yep good idea of Helens just bought tab curtains from Argos, only £11.99 not lined but Mocha colour so should not be to see through. Smile

Curtains have arrived today, really impressed with speed of delivery so we'll be able to try them out this weekend. Provided we can figure out how to put the awning up of course!

We put the awning up and when we're all sorted then we put the curtain in by loosening the pole via the screw fixing on the roof support bar and pulling the front plastic clip away from the front awning pole and then inserting the pole into the tabs all the while the pole is still attached to the Dandy via the hook end .... we then slide the pole back into place and fix back onto the front bar and re-tighten the screw. This way we know all the poles are in the right position and we've also found it the easiest way of doing things. Hope this helps

You'll love your private little area and it's so easy to slide the curtain out of the way should you get company and need the full space of the awning.

Your very welcome Jayne, and you know what you can change the decor in there any time you want by using different curtains .... decorating the smallest room in the Dandy's easy lol!

Your not wrong there Shaun, we cover the loo with a small DIY table cloth to make it look a bit better when we have visitors and it seems a popular little seat lol!

Just a thought but if I ever did sell my Dandy I'd advertise it as having an awning en-suite ....... do ya think it'd be worth more lol!
