Looking to add an awning to a 2011 Merc Sprinter LWB - what advice re brand/size/model

Looks like the options are Fiamma F45 or F65 (what is the difference) or Thule Omnistor

What recommendations or issues with any?

Thanks

When the wind blows you want the best..
When the sun shines you want the widest and longest shade you can have..

And that is not the same in both cases..

With the vehicle side stabilises these are usually the best for wind..

But with the peg downs these are usually the best shade cover, however if you are at the beach the sand doesn't hold them in a blow.. Plus you need to park back a bit to get ground to peg into..
Catch 22.
You need to think it through as to where you spend your time.. Inland or at the beach.

I am a real fan of either Making Shade or Cvana. Both very similar construction and amazingly robust construction. We have just ordered a 5 metre Making Shade model for our new caravan.
