Isabella shadow

I'm thinking of buying the 2.4m Isabella shadow Sunshade for my Familia as we have booked a couple of CC sites with non awning pitches, we will put it up and take it down every day to comply with the rules. I'm after some advice from owners of the sunshade
Is it easy to put up, and is it also waterproof?
Thanks

It is waterproof but you need to angle the sun shade to get water to shoot off quickly
or water will pool.
I think it is worth while buying the "net" front (as well) as it comes with extra poles,
which will make it stiffer. The three long plastic pegs are good on grass but not on
hard standing.
Dead easy to put up solo.

Trees and her husband (Jean Peter I think) "tjp" have one fitted "J." Here's a photo they've put in the gallery :-

However they've not been on here for a while.

If you send them a PM then it'll probably show up on their Email (ours does)

Hi, we like our Isabella shadow very much....its so easy and fast to put it up and take it down and it is waterproof. It's such a beautiful combination with the Eriba...and lightweight!

Hi Trees. No need to apologise but we love to hear from you both from time to time. My apologies but I can't remember Hubbies name. Was I correct......Jean Peter?

Anyway it's great to hear from you both and thanks for helping out regarding your sunshade.

Almost correct...Jan-Peter haha

They both look lovely Trees. Do you have to book them before arriving?

We really must spend more time in the Netherlands.

Sorry Jan-Peter for getting your name wrong.

I don't think you have to book it in advance except for July and August...but we have a lot of (long) weekends with public holidays...eastern, hemelvaart, pinksteren (don't know the english word for it) and kingsday...all in spring, when the wetter is good campsites are very busy then!

Both campsites are in 'Limburg' our most Southern province, and in the south of 'Limburg' we have the only hills in the country with beautiful timbered houses, looks great, especialy in Spring!
