When you have the small rear awning fitted, do you sleep with the boot open ?
If not, how loose or secure is it over night ?

Yes it stays open as it’s only the tailgate that holds it up.
It actually not too cold as I have a camper baffle under the rear of the car to stop draughts.
I have since gone for a blow up drive away side awning which combined with the baffle between the wheels,makes Avery cozy setup.
I also spin the camper jump box round so the table opens up into the car. We cook in the awning so it works well. This means the tailgate stays shut.
A £20 hook up lead box from Go Outdoors  means that I always get an electric hookup. This is great for the fridge lights ,water and entertainment but also means we can have a hot air fan heater on. This keeps us warm and dry no matter what :0) no more damp mornings !

Thanks for the info, I see you have removed the rear seats as well.

Yes ... I leave 1 rear seat in for my daughter and to protect us from the jump box. When we get there I just take it out and pop it in the awning.

Hi. We have an Amdro for our Berlingo. If you fit it in the other way as you have, does the bed still extend fully? 

Yes it does, but rises up slightly to the rear door. It’s not a problem (I’m 6.2) and the slight gradient doesn’t worry me, but it isn’t flat :0)
I also put some bocks in the footwell to stop the box teetering when the box is slid up to the front seats when the bed is extended. There is a small bit of box sliding to do, but it slides fine on the carpet.
It’s s faff but no big deal.
The box definitely works a lot better folding out the way it was designed to, but the benefit of not needing to have the rear door open outweighs the slight gradient and sliding around :0)

Thanks for that. I'll give it a try if it ever stops raining!
I think we might even get away with our awning on the side too.
