Important information on distance to the ground
How much distance should there actually be between the seam and the ground in order to secure your awning against the elements?
There should always be a distance of 7–16 cm (may vary from caravan to caravan) to the ground from the seam that finishes off the awning to the beginning of the mud flap. This is very important in order to achieve tension in the pegging elastics all the way round the awning. When there’s tension in the pegging elastics all the way round, the awning is well tensioned, and thus better protected against the elements.
