It was more like a piss-up in several distilleries.
Common End Farm is a very nice closeish campsite.
The campsite I go to every year involves a ferry trip, no camper vans or motorhomes allowed!
A Coleman event shelter with optional sidewalls could possibly fit the bill.
There are automated awnings available, in the style of the things above shop windows, both hand-wound and electrified versions.
I have the former. Its a godsend.
The motor home comes with an awning so we do have shelter and shade. It just pulls out and the legs fold down, but because it’s basically just a roof with no sides, it’s not very warm should the weather be chilly.
I was referring more to the ones that are basically a tent which attach to the side of the motor home.
Glad you enjoyed your trip @Carole, I was dreading our caravan stay last year, but really enjoyed it once I was there, can't wait for another one (April's booked trip to Wales didn't happen)
Could you knit some sides for it?
Alternatively, if it is identifiable, there may be optional sides available..?
A windbreak may also work, but will be a bit of a faff.
Get on to the manufacturer or a decent dealer, they should be able to sort you out with sides and even a front if needs be to extend your living space.
If there's a lot of windbreaking going on, I would be leaving the sides open.
Carole, search for your awning model and add safari room. That might bring up some results for you.
Surely there isn't a market for clothes pegs in the Serengeti ?
We saw some people with inflatable 3 sided windbreaks which looked good.
I’ve just googled that but nothing came up.
Having said that, I’m getting ahead of myself.
We enjoyed our weekend perfectly well without one and I don’t want to buy something that we don’t need.
So we’ll do a few more trips and see how it all pans out.
We were that couple when we had a tent but soon realised the error of our way and got an airbeam tent... Up in 10 minutes !!
I take it you'd recommend one of those then?
That’s one place where you get plenty of camper vans. They didn’t seem to have formal sites, people just rocked-up and parked by the beach. That must feel very adventurous, helped, I’m sure, by the whisky!
Are you going next year?
Most certainly, it saved our marriage ! They aren't cheap but bloody easy to put up, but still rigid and strong in wind.
Thanks, I want one that I can take Shell Island. The winds there are awful at times, but I know a lot that go there swear by the air tents.
It's nice get an opinion of someone close to home. It won't be a mahoosive one, there's just me, and tons of camping equipment.
We have a Vango Solaris 500 Air... There's 3 of us (plus loads of equipment). Got carpet and footprint at the same time.
