G'day Dunaruna (not too far I hope),
I can see why you have swapped over from the straight awning across to the batwing.
From your photos dated 20th Jan, the straight awning doesn't appear to provide a great deal of cover (sunlight and rain protection) to the kitchen area and beyond. 

You'll be extremely happy with the coverage provided by the batwing awning. 

For future trips, we have decided to take our rear-most canvas wall, on the kitchen side, with us as a wind-break. Also found that we could do with some shade from early morning sun, on the long kitchen side. So we recently purchased a caravan privacy screen (2805mm x 1800mm = $94.00), which we shall use as the kitchen side-wall, rather than the heavier/bulkier canvas wall.
I took the privacy screen to an upholsterer who was able to sew a length of Velcro to the top hem and this will allow us to attach the privacy screen to the awning roof.

I will take a photo on our next camping trip - NSW long weekend 12/13/14 March.

Cheers, Filbee56

Hello filbee56,
Good to hear from you , yes we are very happy with the batwing, had a small issue with it but Supa peg fixed it straight away.they are an excellent company to deal with.
We are also looking to do what you have done with a privacy screen (made a note of your measurements ) thanks
Also would like to thank all who contribute to this forum it has helped us with some of our "minor" issues.
Cheers Dunaruna

We have a 2016 490 Cape York kitchen rally awning (supplied with the van new) with walls and skirt for sale.  We have only used this awning and the pull out kitchen end wall 1/2 dozen times.  We have just had a 180 Bat wing installed on the kitchen side.

The awning includes the walls,skirt, poles, ropes and pegs.  

Please call Will on 0417653312 or private message if you are interested.  We are asking $1200 for the lot.  We live near Byron Bay...

On the subject of the 180 awning ... we were under the impression that the awning extended on an angle at the rear (like it does on the front over the pull out kitchen slide)....  Has anyone done a modification on this end?  

Also has anyone done any research on how to modify the pull up steps so you can close the main door at night time without pulling the steps up????  

Cheers Will & Sheena

Hi Willshe, in relation to the steps being pulled up, we simply attached a cotton belt near the bottom part of the step. Drill a hole the same size as your small bolt, place a sizeable washer between the bolt head, belt and step and tighten accordingly. We then pull the belt inside prior to closing the door. When you want to go outside, grab the end of the belt and let it down. Hope that helps
