I do like the big screens,price and having the 2 sizes of runners, then it fits the awning barrel and will fit the sail trak on the other sid eof van and won't pull out, half price to others is a great attraction as well........................ I even use them as patio screens at home, rivetted sail trak to the gutter fascia and just slide them in, some flush eye rings on the concrete for tie downs....... keeps the afternoon sun at bay quite well..... doesn't look daggy either...

Ok confession time - who bought what?

I broke a serious tradition to not be there near opening time.... Bought a 4.2m front privacy screen and a 1kg extinguisher. Lots of items on the stock delayed list though

Got another caravan cover. Last/current one is falling apart, about 3 years old.
That sounds like the life of most of them at least the Aldi ones are a reasonable price.........................

Think it would be a bit like that up here, this year mould would be the big thing, possibly be a problem all the time as we have a heavy dew every morning when its not bluddy raining of course and I have to regularly pull awning out to give it a clean .......... Just never tried a cover the trapped heat and with the dew, pollen, dust, mould its an ongoing battle to keep things clean and a cover means more work............... Joys of country living....

The Princess and I grabbed a coffee this arvo at the bakery next to the local Aldi. I Broke a rule and decided to have a look. They had 10mtr food-grade van hoses. Bunnings used to sell the Hills version but I recall the last time I went looking for one they were a little thin on the ground so I grabbed two Aldi versions, not quite as supple as the Hills but will likely come in handy if just for the garden I suppose.

Mrs CR tried 2 local Aldi stores Saturday morning just for a hose but none available in either. Must have shipped all to Melbourne.
