awning wall/freestanding frame

Has anyone any idea where I could obtain a free standing back frame for an awning (similar to those used to display awnings in a showroom)

They could be so handy when coming home with a damp awning.

I'm not sure Graeme, but a mate of mine has fixed an awning rail to the side wall of his garage. Sadly I can't do the same, but it is a fantastic idea.

You wouldn't need the side parts if it was for drying only so a couple of old roof poles with clamp ends to fasten onto a cross member complete with a pair of guy ropes at each end. Screw awning rail into the cross member.

At our previous house I screwed 3 pieces of awning rail to the side of the garage. I cut up an old skirt piece so I could attach the isabella pole to awning connectors. I could then clip it in 3 places, stretch the rest out and peg it down until it dried.

Only problem is English weather, if you leave it overnight it will get wet again, even if it doesnt rain.

At times we do have to put away a van back into storage with a wet awning. OK, I have a large barn to do this in, but all I do is use some rope like a very strong washing line and simply stretch the awning up and over it.

In the past I have used the garage, but awning was a little large but managed to get it dry. Also used a steel cored washing line. The only answer is don't caravan when its wetjump1.gif
