Our anti flap kit has two sail tracks one for the awning wall and one ready for a porch so I am hoping it will fit in here. I will let you know.Doing the same. another mod i will be doing is attach sail track to anti flap kit on the outer side to some how attach this porch. Watch this space for another Pace mod.
Well, I got into Aldi 0910 yesterday morning, found a heap of stock as advertised. Got the porch all good. Done the usual Saturday morning thing and attended kids activities, then scored 1 basketball game early arvo.
Once home started to mod anti flap kit to accept sail track for porch attachment, all good done in 20 mins. Got the porch out and wife and I started attachment no problem, THEN once i create tension on porch to generate its required formation, BANG outcome the anti flap arm from the top support stay.
Fortunately the awning never ripped, so wife and i agreed that this wasn’t a good option. Given the day was still without any wind, imagine when the wind blows up. Packed up, put it away for think time OR another member to share their experience OR assistance in my described dilemma.
Hi pace,,, pretty keen on one of these to but not keen spending the 70 if I'm not going to be able to use it...
What about attaching it to the cross bar that go's from the van to the awning roller instead? Would that work?
Having thought about this one before i buy our at Aldi on Saturday - And by my reckoning - you actually better off with three legs than four... Because with three it is much better for ground that is not level, where as with four, on uneven ground you are likely to always have one of the legs off the ground anyway due to rocking.. Thats not to say that its going to stand perfectly vertical with three, just that all three legs will always be on the ground..
Just a thought...
I was on the same thinking zero. But not for the above reason but thought it would distort the Aldi awning too much? Making a piece of sail track to strap to the cross bar. It is a bit light but then there is a gap under and over the awning. I am suprised it pulled out so easily. Last year I got a silver 12x8 tarp modded with sail track on one end and fastened it into the anti flap rail, then extend out 6ft and down 6ft for privacy. I put the weber under here. Had a few days if heavy winds at Bermagui and it didn't pull out of the anti flap track!
Just an update, Pace (and clever Mrs Pace). The fridge light you put us on to worked a treat while we were away. After some experimenting finally fitted it just under the top shelf on door. Now I know what I'm drinking in middle of night! Haven't yet decided on where the spare one will go best - maybe in the hatch??No rain at all there POD; Mrs Pace thought of that, she bought it with a switch on it which can be either on/off or auto. Up there for thinking Mrs Pace.
Yeah Exactly that Jim. We never wanted the gap between the porch and the awning, hence the attempted attachment to the anti flap. I really think the cross bar Zero talks of isnt sufficient to handle such an item due to its light gauge material used.
So again, if theres any other variations to this potential porch attachment, please feel free to pass on. I'm still thinking there could be a way.
