Looks very smart indeed Cool

Where did you get the canopy from? Most of the caravan sun canopies I've seen are huge things that are little different to full awnings.

Thanks for that togg1774 - I fancy doing this on mine as very often we just want something to shelter bits and pieces left outside if there's a shower (or get some shelter from the sun should that ever be a problem again).

I got myself horribly confused with measurements as the smalest one advertised is 6.6 - 7 metres and yours is clearly around 4 metres wide. Then I saw that the largest is 9.8 - 10.2 metres and there aren't many caravan that long so I assume this is the entire length of the awning rail.

Do you know what size number yours is? They seem to go from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

This is how they measure caravan awnings. Not sure how that applies to sun canopies though.

If you have an awning you could get the sides zippered to form a canopy.

It looks like the same principle is applied for the sun canopies too navver.

With the Destiny, I'd have the option of fitting a section of awning rail or tying on like togg1774 has.

The zips in the awning is an option but I fancy something really quick and simple to attach also.
