No experience of them, sorry!

One thing I do know about them is that they are very expensive in comparison to other suppliers.

On a modern vehicle it may be preferable to get a professional to fit it instead of trying a DIY.  A DIY could then be used to invalidate any warranty you may have with the electrics.  Either way I don't think it is a very easy job as the dashboard may have to be removed to access the wiring.

As it would be a "modification" that you would be obligated to advise your vehicle insurer about, before going the DIY route I would speak with them first. The legal twists and the incredible compensation and litigation costs faced could be " life changing", should any third party get injured and your insurer looks to you to meet their costs. And cruise control at the very heart of the functions of the vehicle is far more likely to be an issue here than say fitting a bit of bling trim. Do Anderson offer any documentation certifying their work?

Anderson are expensive but I have only read good things about them and that their work is to a high standard.

There could well be a link between all those aspects!

Is cruise available as an option from the manufacturer on the original vehicle?

If so, could be that the necessary wiring is in place, would just need the control stalk and a visit to a dealer laptop to enable it.

WE are looking at fitting it to our Fiat Ducato based motorhome and we are probably going to use Dave Newell (www.davenewell.co.uk) to fit an aftermarket kit that's available as an add on (ie plug and play)

    • Sizing an awning
      By tangotonyb · Posted
      OK thanks - I'll try that and see if it's anywhere near the 1050cm I believe it to be based on the caravan size (assuming that THAT's correct lol).

      Quite right, the beading length is not the one dictating the size.  The "A" dimension is from the ground back to the ground on the opposite side. As the awning's sides themselves don't quite  touch the ground, but stand about 5 cm above it, I would measure it along the van face edge as follows. From the lowest corner of the LH side panel right round along the beading to the lowest corner of the RH side panel,. Then to this add 10 cm for the "ground standoff" 5 cm each side to get the "A" size.   [Practically It could be easier to measure to a centre seam if that is a feature of the awning, and double that plus adding on that 10 cm.]
