got an awning

Post by vnuala on Mon 06 Aug 2012, 5:59 pm

I have finally got an awning to go with my dandy 6,,,it is a 70's one so i need to reproof it when we have a dry day,it is free standing so the excess material/sleeve will tuck nicely under the roof of the danndy.

Your little one looks very pleased with the awining ...... it may not look contemporary enough or might be the wrong colour for the 14 year old but you watch her run into it when your away if it rains. lol!

The roof shape goes very well with a 6

I use fabsil but not the spray type as I don't think it's anywhere near as good to use (most blows away in the wind). You can get a large tin from the campshops, I also don't brush it on as I find it takes forever but I use a clean dry sponge to apply. Pour it into a bowl then dip the sponge in and wipe onto whatever it is you want to proof, I've just been in the back garden and done a two man tent in about 10 minutes. You have to leave for up to 6 hours to dry thoroughly.

1 litre will treat 18sq metres of nylon but only 5 sq metres of medium weight canvas. I buy the 2.5 litre tins and use it for all sorts from coats to tents and even nylon windbreaks as it makes them easier to dry off to pack away. Very Happy

This is true as found out today,,the guy in the camping shop said 1 600ml spray would do my awning how wrong was he it just about done half of the roof ,,,,i have ordered some reproofer today which is for heavy cotton and canvas tents/awnings it can be applied to a dry or wet canvas and is suppose to last for 4 yrs so fingers crossed.

Dandy 4 awning for sale

Post by dminett on Fri 14 Sep 2012, 7:19 pm

I have for sale an awning for my 1980 Dandy 4-yes, I am still using it!-it is blue and made up of two sheets with "side" windows which are also the awning roof, plus a grey ground sheet. Fixings are by "pop" studs.
I thought I would ask here first otherwise I will be putting it on eBAY.
