    Awning for Dihatsu Romahome Hijet

    Have bought an awning for my Dihatsu Romahome 2002. The instructions are rubbish, have no idea how the awning attaches to the van. I assume it must go over the rear door. The person I bought it from says they never used it, couldn't work out how it was put up.They also had a Dihatsu. Please help me.Thanks.Chris

      Hi I have a diahatsu hijet too .. and use 2 different awnings on it .. the main thing is knowing a make .. or whether its a driveaway .. or if you don't know any of that ... then maybe a few descriptions as to type of poles? fabric it's made from etc may help us identify it for you ..

        Ian . The only info I have on the awning is that it is a HACIENDA awning designed manufactures and supplied by J & M Designs of Cleckheaton in West Yorkshire. Look forward to hearing from you.Chris

          As I said it is a HACIENDA awning, it has loads of poles and guy ropes with it. The instructions i have are absolute rubbish, being mostly in German or some other language. Thanks very much for hopefully helping me with this and i look forward to hearing from you soon. Chris

            There is a J&M designs, Cleckheaton still in business, they are the manufacturers of the original silver screens. They may be able to shed some more light on the awning?? http://www.silverscreens.co.uk/Terms...onditions.html

            My guess would be it is made of heavy duty canvas fabric with steel poles as opposed to lighter weight polyester fabric and fibreglass poles?

              It is a Hacienda awning with loads of poles, i.e the ones which split down the middle,

              As i said to Ian, the instructions are rubbish, written in German. Chris

                Ian thanks for phone number . Have rung it, they are not very helpful,have not got an anserphone, will ring them tomorrow. It is made of heavy duty canvas fabric and steel poles. Do you have any idea of how to put it together, if I get no answer from J and M . Thanks. Chris

                  I would imagine it will look like the awning at the bottom of this thread, but if you are anywhere near any of the forum meets I'm sure if you popped along someone will make you a cuppa and help you work out how to put it up.

                  Generally the canvas type awnings go up in a similar way. Maybe this will give you a help? http://www.motorcaravanning.co.uk/pd...bregenz_ii.pdf

                  If you decide to put it up and get it right, I would make sure to either get lots of different coloured tape and colour code the joints, or number them, or some similar way of identifying the poles.

                  As for attaching to the diahatsu, it is generally a case of pulling the tunnel part over the roof above the door and using guys to hold it in place.

                    where are you from Chris? Are you likely to be near a local meet soon..?
                    I find the canvas ones with steel poles easier to erect..

                    Usually there will be four poles the same length for your corners.. and 3 poles with corner pieces for the roof .. which connect with straight poles across to support the canvas.. hard to explain easier to show...

                    you would put together the roof section first and connect the corner poles half up.. then throw over the canvas and adjust it to be round the right way on the poles.. then extend the corners to full height before shuffling it back to the van..

                    I will be at Polstead in a few weeks and if you can get there I will happily help you work it out ..

                        Thanks for your advice , will try and use your instructions to try again the next couple of weeks. Will let you know one way or other. I live near Brighton in Sussex, so doubt if any meets near me. Thanks again. Chris

                          Brighton isn't too far away .. if you have a go and get stuck then maybe we can arrange to meet at Chertsey site one weekend and I can give you a hand to figure it out ..

                          http://www.campingandcaravanningclub...s.aspx?id=6090

                          or join us in Polstead for the weekend 16th Nov.. would take you about 2 1/2 hrs from Brighton I think ..

                            Hi Chris,
                            I live in central Brighton and have 2 awnings and have had about a dozen tent/related structures over the years! Am very happy to meet up at mutual convenience to try and help you work this one out, just send me a private message and I'll pass on my contact details.
                            Incidentally theres a small get together at a site on Hayling Island this coming weekend (look for Southern Flash meet, on the Meeting Up section of the site)
                            I'll be there and at least a couple more experienced 'old hands' will be too! Failing that Sonya's right Polstead is about a 2.5hr drive.
                            All the best
                            Andy
