The Kensington is a five-piece awning comprising the roof, two sides and two front sections. As such it is no different from much of the competition. Where it does differ however, is that having erected the frame and fitted the roof, the sides and front panels can be hung from the roof prior to zipping them in. This may seem a small point but trying to hold a panel upright whilst zipping it is can be a real pain. And to be able to leave the panel hanging when taking the awning down in wet weather means that there is less likelihood of it getting muddy.
The fibreglass option is only available on awnings with ground-to-ground dimensions starting at 840cm
