Protecting Your Awning From The Stormy Weather
The Long Summer Days Are Almost Here!
Every summer we hope to be investing more in sun cream and BBQ utensils than waterproofs and indoor games, but part of the thrill of living and holidaying in the UK is the unpredictable weather.
When the sun is shining there is no greater gift to campers, but in the event of a storm - here are a few tips for preventing your caravan awning from taking off in the manner of Mary Poppins after a shift:
Sometimes even the Met office cannot correctly predict the weather - so what chance have we? The best we can do is to secure our caravan enough so that it is prepared for every freak storm eventuality:
In the event of very strong winds you may want to find alternative accommodation and secure your van by:
In addition to physically securing your van - you will need extra protection through insurance.

At Club Care Insurance, awnings are covered for the same hazards as the caravan - as long as they have not been left unattended for more than four days. It is always best to read through your insurance policy to check that it covers all that you need it to.
Watch Out Thieves Are About!
Security for what is inside the van and it's awning is also important. Below are a few tips to prevent thieves from obtaining it's contents:
Now that you are prepared and protected you can relax and chase that British sunshine - enjoy!
What our clients are saying:
"At last we are home and wish to send you a very grateful thank you for getting us out of a difficult situation. Your selfless act is so appreciated and I am writing to tell the Caravan Club about your wonderful service. I do hope that you will receive some free advertising if they publish my letter. We cannot believe that you drove nearly 50 miles out of your way, on a Friday evening in rush hour traffic and did not even make a call out charge! We expected to pay a call-out fee at least.
Thank you once again and we wish all at Rhyno every success for the future.
Very best wishes"
