I have a tourer sw caravan which has the principle tent extension coming out of a zipped bag above the door to the van. Has anyone worked out a way to fold this back up when you are on your own ?  I have tried but haven't managed to work it out yet  I'm sure someone has. Thanks.

Hi Ian

Keep one extendable tent pole seperate.

When ready, put the tent pole on the far (open) side of the awning and start rolling it around the pole towards the bag. You stay in the middle and the awning rolls up on the pole. The roof side will then roll onto the pole on the 'inside'

Don't remove the pole. It then goes rolled up in your awning in the bag. Next time you set up camp, you just unroll the awning and put your pole where it should go. 

On your van it should work as a one man task. Obviously  much easier if you have help.

Weereens word dit bewys dat jy nooit te oud word om te leer nie. Ek gebruik n wit elektriese pyp om die plastiese bedekking voor die tent se vensters so op te rol.

Ons drink uit die piering want ons koppie loop oor.

Die plastiek van die tent vensters gebruik ek weer niks voor nie.  Vou na bo in helfte weer in helfte weer in helfte en gee laaste stukkie n rol.  Gaan baie vinniger

 

Sonder Jesus is ek niks! ! ! !

Ek doet hom ook so. Minder om saam te karwei.

Dankie Leon en Proffie......net toe ek dink ek is slim kom julle met n meer praktiese idee. Ek is nie skaam om te leer nie......en dit nogal verniet.
