Fiamma Motorhome Awnings Tips and Advice

Holiday All Year Round Using Your Fiamma Motorhome Awning

Tips on how to use it sensibly


Johns Cross Motorcaravan and Camping Centre, the leading Camping and Motorhome dealers in East Sussex, supply a full range of Fiamma wind out motorhome awnings with or without enclosures.


Fiamma motorhome awnings are strong and sturdy and can be used all year round as long as you follow some sensible rules.

1. If you are using the F45ti model without the privacy enclosure or the zip with out the zip enclosure then it is always a good idea to roll it away at night or when you are leaving the vehicle. This only takes a minute but can save a lot of damage if you get a freak gust of wind.

2. It is always a good idea to put a tie down strap over the awning when ever it is being used. If you are using an awning with out an enclosure then the tie down strap should be put over the arms by the front lead bar, but under the canvas. This stops the canvas from being stretched. If you are using an awning with an enclosure then the tie down strap should be placed over the canvas near the font lead bar.

3. Fiamma sell a curved tension rafter that is designed to stop rainwater from pooling on the canvas and stretching it. This is a great product but should not be used when the sun is out as the heat from the sun can stretch the canvas. Another good tip when it is raining is to lower one leg so the water should pour off that front corner and not pool.

4. Using any of the tension and magic rafters that Fiamma sell will always strengthen and support your awning.

5. It is always safer to peg the legs down to the ground and if you use the fiammastor plates to go over the feet then it will protect your awning even more.

6. The Fiamma motorhome awnings are some of the strongest on the market but as with any wind out awning it pays to be sensible and not leave it out in bad weather conditions.


The Fiamma motorhome awnings range includes the Fiamma F45ti which is just the canopy. This comes in sizes from 2.5m to 5.5m, you can buy privacy enclosures to make this into a completely enclosed awning. The range also includes the Fiamma Zip Awning which is both the canopy and enclosure. This comes in sizes from 2.5m to 4.5m.
