I like the look of the curved one right at the bottom, apart from being cheap it looks like it might be quick and easy for one person to put up on tour or overnight stops.

We are thinking of getting a heavy large one for long trips away but a lighter one just for weekends....I know we will need to get a reasonable one so it either doesn't blow away or get wind ripped. Any advice? We also have a large dog so we all need some space even on a weekend!

The small awning you can't go wrong with the AL/NR porch awning, it is very easy to put up and very practicable. It's all we use with our Familia 320. We can get the table in it, two deck chairs, and even room for our dog

I never understood the term " extravagant" maybe it's just my background?

I usually try to strike a balance between need and available funds.

Not at all Lee. I think most Eriba owners have more than one awning/canopy. In fact we have three. The Clairval full awning, we carry and use on longer trips/stays when the weather cannot be guaranteed. Note we also have an extension which we used when taking our cats with us. It's just the right size for two large dog cages.
The Soplair Sun Canopy, although we've had it for a few years we have only recently started using it for long weekends. It's quite sturdy but the poles take up a lot of space so we will only use it when we are not carrying the Clairval.
Our Coleman Classic Awning which we adapted from a tent awning, we always carry as it packs away into a bag about 24" long x 8" dia. and is great for overnight/two or three day stops.
