Visit from Rapido and Silver pop top caravan owners (vision canopy)

We have had some interest recently from Rapido and Silver caravan owners expressing and interest as to whether our wonderful Vision caravan canopy would fit their vehicles.  On both occasions we have been able to find a Vision that will fit their size. As the height and awning rail width is very similar to the Eriba touring range all we need to know is the straight awning rail section length you have available. We have also tried out the poles supports and sides with success also so it looks like you may also be able to enclose the canopy to...

Campervan Canopy in action

Today we were sent a lovely email and some photo's from a lady who recently bought one of our stunning Foyer campervan canopies. She wanted to let us know how happy she was with her choice. She called us to say she wanted a canopy for a T5 and was looking for something that was easy to erect and looked good. She had seen the Foyer campervan canopy on the website already and was delighted when we said it should fit the bill. After a couple of practice go's, she says she has the pitching down to about 10 minutes,...

We are getting increasing interest in our 2 metre camper canopy / 2 metre caravan canopies. It seems a lot of manufacturers do not take into account the market of certain campervans and stylish compact caravans that are more and more common on the roads today. Luckily here at the caravan canopy shop we have two choices for you, both offering very different options and looks. The only thing you need is awning rail/c section of 2 metres. Firstly, we have the Primo canopy which is a simple sunshade made in Germany of high quality rot proof, tear resistant fabric....

The pro's and con's of a Caravan Canopy

There are definately pro's and con's for using a caravan canopy and I am going to take a look as objectively as possible at both sides. Firstly, I will take a look at the pro's. The biggest plus for me is the ability to erect a caravan canopy quickly in comparison to a traditional awning (or divorce in a bag as it is otherwise known). You can have a canopy up in minutes. Most of our collection can be erected somewhere between 10 and 25 minutes. Flexibility - several of our caravan canopies have optional sides, or a front panel,...

Bank Holiday Weekend Underneath the Arco....

We headed off on Friday after a last minute decision to make the most of the bank holiday weekend. Last minute decisions mean lots of traffic however so we braved the M6 and made our way to our site for the weekend, Capesthorne Hall, in Cheshire. On arrival, we were impressed by the entry to the site, down a long drive towards the stately home, sheep either side. Beautiful. We pitched up and were amazed the site was only half full. Never came across this before on a bank holiday weekend! The weather was promised changeable with some wind so...
