    Thanks but there is quite a difference between the two products, definitely not what I am looking at.

    I bought 2.5m Tentco awning, a few weeks back. Used it twice and and very impressed with quality, easily set up by 1 person. Very stable even without guy ropes. I will buy again. Edit: Awning was R2000 and extra side/front panel was R560 odd.

    Question, how does it fold back up? Do you fold up and put it back in the container or does it roll up ?

    I have the Tentco 2.5m X 2.0m
    Very happy with it and easy to setup ( Its 2.5m Long and 2.0m Out)
    one has to fold it (Roll) back into the bag.

    Two questions.

    Will it fit with my factory roof rail, a don't have a roof rack?

    I understand it's 2m away from vehicle when rolled out. Is that enough shade?

    I'm also looking at Howling Moon Leisure Awns that rolls out to 2.5m and 3m. I'm so confused. Price wise Tentco will be great buy, one can even get the side wall as well, total cost much less than leisure awn price.

    Where there is a will there is a way. I think one can make a plan.
    There is more than enough space for me then again depends on how you are setup in the sun.
    Ironman 4x4 has a 2.5m x 2.5 m as well.
