Last year I was umming and arring about awnings and ended up buying a utility tent for storage which is fine and does the job but an awning offers that much more and if it works to plan your straight into it from the Dandy. Last night at midnight I bought a new xl awning after spending hours looking at various models which seems to be what I need light, easy to erect plenty of room, and hopefully the right height.

The model I bought is a Sunncamp Vision XL, I intend putting up a rail on the Dandy ( 95 destiny highside ) to attach it. Quick questions how long a rail should I attach, is there glue strong enough to attach it or must it be screwed, should I go with figure of eight instead, also is there any glue suitable to attach Velcro to the body, the Velcro attached by a previous owner is coming off.

Thanks

The awning rail is a standard 1 meter, and we self tapped ours into the Dandy Frame.

Here is a link for a free info sheet for fitting the awning rail -->> www.dandyforum.co.uk/index.php/downloads...de-plus-porch-awning

And one for the Suncamp Vision XL Awning www.dandyforum.co.uk/index.php/downloads...amp-vision-xl-awning

Hope they help

Thanks Neil I have watched your video on the rail very helpful but I wasn't sure how long the rail was, I've seen packs on eBay of 3/4 1.2m lengths with screws, I guessed I would need a couple of lengths but better to ask.
It was also your video on the Vision that made my mind up, light and easy to put up, I had looked at the movelite xl but there seems to be a lot of problems with pole damage etc and plenty on offer after supposedly 1 or 2 uses not a good sign. Booked into Brecon for a long weekend soon hope to attach the rail then and try out the awning coming tomorrow. Thank you your videos are very helpful.
