Trial run at home and it’s great, looking forward to a long weekend in a couple of weeks time.

It’s a secondhand Karsten from Tony Lloyd, pretty much unused and ex display. Needs to be weathered which it’ll get in the Lakes this month. I had a great chat with Tony when I collected it from his workshop. I thought we would be happy with our canopy and windbreaks, which we have been for the last 2 years, but horizontal rain in Scotland last month changed our minds especially for the winter months.

Hi Ronnie. Yes it would appear that Tony does get some good awnings coming in from time to time and I only realised lately that he advertises them on Ebay.

I think it was a friend of his who may have added it to our Facebook page so I've invited Tony through his friend, to advertise the awnings on Eribafolk in the future.

The one thing that's certain is that you know it's a good one if it comes from Tony.

Hi Randa, yes he might do that. Tony mentioned that he was shocked how expensive Ebay is now, I think he said it was just over 12% Of the sale price!

What a lucky boy you are. The Karsten was the original blow up, tailored to fit you van, and makes the Unico and Fortex look cheap.
E-bay prices to sell are expensive. I’ve got into the habit of preparing my photos and text on items I want to sell and then wait for the selling offers. 80% off comes up fairly frequently, but the fixed £1 selling fee is not to be missed. I sold an £850 machine on that offer a few years ago.
