Sorry for the delay, I sort of lost the thread.

My canvas is heavy ex army rip stop tent material.

I think Robin and the crew have assessed it and ruled it too heavy for the frame as is.

I have, however, got hold of some used scaffold sheeting material which is translucent and rip stop.

It might do the trick.

I was thinking, only theis afternoon, that I might drag it up t'Pit and see if anyone would like to make use of it.

A can or two of Guinness (I appear to have a medical issue with real ale these days.) would be welcome in exchange for my effort in scrounging and transporting the stuff.
All the right bits, but not necessarily in the right order.

The scaffolding tarp sounds ideal Matt - I'd be happy to take some of it off your hands at t'Pit   wdesmle

Cheers,

Some more photos of PTV433M over the time I've owned it seeing as I haven't updated it much.

First camping trip with Carawagon style awning fitted

using Really Useful Boxes to form a bed base

I later cut the bulkhead behind the rear seats so that I could move the bed forward which allowed room between the bed and rear door so we could leave shoes there and make getting dressed easier.

In February this year I acquired a Dormobile roof.

I had to undo the roof hinges so that I could mount the brackets to support the tubes that the awning rail slides into.

Looking good! Need to put some decorations on the roof rack, looking at getting battery powered lights

Simon, I'll put a few metres of translucent sheet in with the 9x9 microlite.

That translucent sheet is excellent for the awning. I might order some more off you so I can have an awning with side
