Cover is off and I've tried the new sunshades on the Troll. With the cold weather the new awning strip is determined to stick straight out at right angles to the van, but I hope it will settle down when we need to use them! Last photo shows our new 'bolsters' for watching the TV in comfort. They are a bit up in the air at the moment, but will sit on the bedding roll. Have also bought little hooks if necessary.

Yes nice Job. We have the front ones that match the awning pattern but not for the rear/side windows.

I did suggest that shutting a piece of cardboard in the window and drawing around it would give a good template
but I cannot remember whether anyone got around to trying it.
I passed on the templates, to a lady in Scotland, that Marmite let me have with a request that she pass them on
after she had used them.

I've still got a couple of sets of patterns for pre 2009 windows on a Triton if anyone wants them

We love all these sunshades! What a brilliant idea! The red and white ones remind us of French cafes! I will definately make some for ours when we get it in the spring. I did make a sun canopy for our VW T4 campervan and I am hoping to use it again but it was attached to the van via a pole and clamps. Do you know what I need to get (is it called beading) and what size so that it will fit in the awning rail?

This is the link to the awning piping/beading we've bought, although it is out of stock at the moment.

http://www.waudbys.co.uk/products/detail...ails/22190.html

Let us know if you need any advice. I cheated using existing tablecloths as they had biased bound edges, which were much neater than I could make myself. This beading is good, though, as the flat bit is double and you can neatly sandwich your blind material between it.

Just realised that the link only takes you to the main page. Just type in beading in the search and you should find it.

We have bought the red striped IKEA fabric to make shades for our Troll. We bought the beading straight from our local caravan accessory shop and have since seen it in others; Homestead caravans at Weeley and a huge outdoor accessory shop at Canvey Island (forgotten its name!) so you may find it locally.

Got my eye on a big lump of cotton material on ebay at the moment ...........already got the awning rail piping

................I feel a 1911 Jones crank-up session in the near future

For info Triton 2006 sizes are different to the patterns

And I need to figure a way round the bike rack brackets in the rear awning rail above the window

You only need one pattern for the front windows Nev, just reverse it for the other window.
