Hi can anybody tell which is the best awning Thule or Fimma Awning
I have an unused Fiamma tie kit in the garage somewhere. i can dig it out if someone wants it.This Fiamma kit is very worth while getting... https://www.fiammastore.com/Tie-Down-Kits-and-Pegs/Fiamma-Tie-Down-Kit-S
The use of the heavy duty springs allows movement withut having loose straps flapping or the awning unable to move. I would think other brands have a similar kit? if not, the Fiamma one could be pretty easily adapted.
When choosing between awning makes, I would suggest also looking to see if there are sides and fronts to enclose it to make an extra outside room when working out a potential total cost and feature list. That can be a useful feature (I have a Rollout Fiamma Awning (Caravanstore) and I find the Fiamma Safari/Privacy Room very handy and it is designed to work directly with the Awning).
I have used the Fiamma awnings in heavy rain. the Safari Room I have came with the "Fast Clip" side bars that you mentioned in an earlier post. Using those side bars stops all any flapping of the awning in wind.Don't undersell it! The canopy is totally waterproof - don't know why Fiamma says otherwise. After all the safari room that can be used in conjunction with it is also totally waterproof. And they do a waterproof strip to fit between casing and wall to stop the water running down side of your van. I prefer the Fiamma over other makes as they have so many extras you can add on as you find you need/would like them.
