    Hey all,

    Thinking about the Fiamma motor and whether it's worth it. For instance can I fully extend the awning before releasing the legs or would we have to keep to'ing and fro'ing? Theory being that I can sit in the dry and extend the awning - And stay dry :)

    If anyone has one, or used one, please let us know what your thoughts are...

    Totally not worth it. Fully extending an awning before dropping the legs on a transporter puts unnessacerry pressure on the vehicle body and the extruded aluminium support brackets. If i were you i would invest in a descent goretex jacket instead. More practical and far more useful.

    Do you not have a wife or children to extend the awning when it's raining?
