Hi, after surviving storm ‘Alex’ at East Fleet Caravan site last night I just wanted to write a post about how good the Thule ‘hold down’ straps were. As we have only had our camper for less than a year I made a rookie error by not checking the weather forecast last night before going to bed. I put out the awning when we arrived on site in order to provide some shelter from the rain, as we were by the coast (Weymouth). Thankfully though I did strap down the awning when I put the awning out. We were woken up at 5am by the sound of the awning flapping in the wind with gusts over 50mph. I realised that we had to ride out the storm and hope that no damage was caused. Eventually the wind died down at midday!!! And to my surprise there was no damage as the straps had done their job brilliantly. I would highly recommend anyone considering these straps to get them as they have saved us from not only damaging the awning but possibly the camper too, well worth the investment.
