    I'd agree that the spring thingies aren't the best for our awnings. We simply don't want to give it room to move and that's exactly why my logic says you don't want the L peg too close to the pole. Then you get vertical movement of the top part of the L. At a 45 degree angle, the rope is perpendicular to the peg part that's in the ground so no way of pulling out the peg. The top of the L (above ground) is then, with some tension, at a small angle to the rope. I'd usually, if the sides are not used, bring the rope down about 30cm on the pole before taking to the L peg.

    On a lose tent / gazebo you want to give slack on the one side and absorb the slack on the other side; then the springs are practical.

    It might add some stress but I don't think anything it can't handle. The function of the storm rope is to reduce movement, not add tension. Basically as a gust comes in under the awning, the canvass itself is stopped before the force is transferred to the frame. There will still be some movement of the canvass but a lot less parachuting/ ballooning and much less force. You need some proper pegs for the storm rope though. If they come loose, you're at the edge of destruction.

    I bought some webbing many many years ago and made my own rope. Fox in Cape Town if I remember correctly.

    Beware of these. I bought 5 of the Maxcon ones for my Baobab earlier this week from Outdoor Warehouse. On arriving home I discovered that rubber stopper on the end of the poles for the bush wing are larger than the holes in the support. The pegs are made of sprung metal and are very difficult to stretch open. I was able to enlarge the holes using a vice, large hammer and heavy duty chisel but it was a real struggle.

    Do you remove and refit every time or leave them on?

    After selling our Comfortvan a couple of years ago due to not using it, we are ready to get back into caravanning. After tons of research the favourite was the Baobab but it is larger than what we need and won't go into the garage. I figured the Boskriek would be ok as we are only 3, but the Miskruier beds and roof appeals the most. Going to get final ok from the boss (wife) on Saturday, at BL. Hoping I'm making the right choice Oh and thinking of ordering it in white.... Any advice on my choice, extras etc. would be appreciated

    The space inside the Baobab and the easy entry door were what sold me on it initially. For 3 people it would be ideal, especially when all 3 are getting ready for bed etc. However if this is not an issue and you find getting in an out the rear hatch is ok and you happy with interior space then the Miskruier is great. I find the Baobab for longer trips and especially winter allows better packing space...much better. The Miskruier now has pop up roof which is great for headroom. I saw a guy at the show on Saturday who was inside the Miskruier with his wife and dad no way could he live with the limited space and prefers the Boaba as he can move around easier. He was a biggish guy.

    For 2 people the Baobab is just too much van therefore I'm selling.
