 AWNING SALES TERMS

We highly suggest you erect your Awning/Tent before use for the following reasons –

  • To check that the canvas, frame and any accessories included in your awning/tent are present and undamaged.
  • All new awnings/tents are covered by a manufacturer’s guarantee for 12 months unless otherwise stated from the date of purchase. These guarantees are for manufacturing faults only and do not cover damage by: – Storms, accidental damage, normal wear & tear or misuse. In light of this we strongly suggest you take out a separate insurance cover policy.
  • In order too ensure your awning/tent is prepared for use we suggest you leave it up and allow it too get wet and dry, this is called weathering and it allows the areas where the canvas has been stitched too shrink around the seams too help prevent leakage.

Aftersales and Warranty Information –

  • If you have any manufacturing faults when you check your awning/tent please contact either Davan Caravans Awning Department or the awning/tent manufacturer with the fault.
  • As stated above anything other than a manufacturing fault is not covered under warranty and we suggest that you take out an insurance policy on your awning/tent.
  • Any warranty work that cannot be completed at Davan will lead to the awning/tent being sent back too the supplier for specialist repairs. These repairs can take up to 3 – 6 weeks depending on the supplier.
  • Lightweight Awnings and Tents that use fibreglass poles can be repaired at Davan Caravans provided the necessary replacement parts are in stock.
  • If a customer would like to order a spare part for their awning/tent Davan Caravans would need to know the make, model and year of the awning/tent in order too provide the customer with the correct part for their awning/tent. A full payment for the part is required before ordering.
  • Davan Caravans can only order awnings, tents and spare parts from manufacturers that it currently deals.
  • Before any aftersales or warranty work can be started a member of Davan Awning Department staff will need too see an Invoice with proof of purchase.

Here are a few helpful tips for your Awning or Tent –

  • We strongly suggest that when using your awning/tent if there are high winds, a storm or any other excessive strong weather conditions that you take it down immediately too prevent any damage too the item as any weather based damage is not covered under warranty.
  • Lightweight awnings are designed for weekend use and not for that of a touring or sited acrylic/polyester full awning, Davan Caravans and all lightweight awning manufacturers strongly suggest you use these awnings within the specifications they were designed for. If they are used in any other manner this is classed as misuse and may not be covered under warranty.
  • If you have purchased a polyester awning/tent from us make sure you keep it well ventilated or there is a possibility it could condensate, if there are any ventilation or mesh panels on the awning/tent make sure they are open as often as possible.
  • If an awning is classed as being a sited awning this does not mean that the frame is able to withstand all weather conditions, it means that it is easier too maintain than other awnings on a site.

Tips for pitching your Awning or Tent –

  • Ideally site your awning or tent at least 6m away from the nearest awning or tent.
  • Try too find the flattest area too pitch as possible but avoid marshy, low lying ground that could flood during conditions of heavy rain.
  • Make sure that you use any extra features built into the awning or tent that could assist with tensioning and pitching. E.g. Regulator tabs.
