Hi everyone,

I am looking to buy a sun canopy for my 1982 Eriba Puck 120, and wondered if anyone can suggest a good make to go for. I already have an awning for weekend camping, but would like a sun canopy for day outs and shows.

Many thanks.

Ian.

Not many fit a Puck.

Isabella are the go to choice. Theoretically too big for a puck (measure the straight length of the awning rail).

But I did see a Puck with one here. As you can see it is a bit distorted where the rail bends at the rear end.

Or there is this one which should accept the smallest size (which only has 2 pole eyelets)

Also Karen's canopies make them to measure if you like the style

or make your own

Hi Steve and Debbie,

Thanks for the time and effort you have given to provide me with some ideas. It is much appreciated. I'm not that practical, so a DIY one is off my list! I'll let you know what I end up with.

Regards.

Ian

Hi

I struggled with the issue of finding a suitable canopy for my 1999 Puck as there are very few options about that will fit the awning rail. In the end I found the Primo sunshade from the Caravan Canopy Shop. This is a German canopy that is actually made by Wigo.

As was said above, unlike the one illustrated on the website, this canopy only has 2 poles and I found that there was a problem with pooling in heavy rain, so I have added a middle eyelet and an additional pole that has resolved that issue. Otherwise I have been happy with it and it has worked well for quick stops when a full awning is a bit of a pain.
