Shock Cord and fittings, 5mm for the pop top and 2mm for the curtains
http://www.bouncingrabbit.co.uk/page3.htm
I think I bought 10mtrs. after doing the pop top, the rest was used inside
to run from the pop top fastenings front to back to hang tea towels on to dry.
I also use it when there is a dip and the awning skirt is too short to peg down,
just make a suitable short loop to connect, very useful stuff.

We once tried one of our Trolls without nets, but we felt it made the interior feel too stark and bare, like the inside of a cigar tube. In our view the nets add a feeling of warmth and comfort plus they have the added advantage of disguising interior activities from the curious outsider.

We've no nets in our current van and I sometimes wonder how it would look with them fitted. Certainly white wobblies do have a lot of curtains compared to an Eriba, with our small Lunar featuring 10 curtains, which, even when furled, makes a substantial contribution to the overall interior ambience and decorative design.

We have not nets at home, so we have no particular preference towards them, but somehow they make a Touring Eriba feel complete.

The nets also diffuse sunlight and help to prevent fading of the upholstery.

Saves having to keep the blinds down and weakening the springs.

Agreed. We took our nets out too, and came to the same conclusion.

So we put them back.

It isn't an 'interior activities' issue as far as we're concerned. We haven't done 'interior activities' for so long I've forgotten what an interior activity looks like and wouldn't recognise one even if I saw somebody else doing it.

Not that I'd make a point of looking to see, mind.

It's if I happened to see it while I was looking at something else entirely unconnected.

You know, out of the corner of my eye.

I gather that keeping the blinds down is a dead giveaway that 'interior activities' are occurring, though I only know this anecdotally.

it was warm in eriba
the diameter is 4mm measured with verniers
the front window elastic measurement 1metre70
the side window lounge " " " 1 metre 40
other side window " " " 1 metre 40
Back window " " " 1metre 60
all measurements include loops but didn't think to unknot there is a slight red flick in the elastic but not something that shows
i hook on the piece that's closest to screws
the front window is slightly stretched so a few extra centimetres added on wont hurt approx. 6metres
have a look at quillow in craft album to see if elastic tight enough for you, although stars pulling down not a very good photo
i cannot remember how much for the pop




Great Job now if you could enlighten us where to get the ali hook ends for the elastic then proper job
