    Very well presented article, I have seen expensive awnings totally trashed by simply using the wrong pegs, I usually storm rig no matter what the weather is like when pitching up it saves the panic of trying to storm set in the middle of a storm and believe me that is not a pleasant task.

    Good video. I brought screw rock pegs as recomended last year for hardstanding in Scotland which were great. Just back from a longe weekend on hardtanding in the Forest of Dean and they would not go in! The standard spike pegs which are like 8 inch nails went in no problem.
    Worth while tip ius buy a claw hammer from a DIY store. Steel head for hammering in and a claw for pulling out which you “rock” against the ground to start off. Mush cheape no doubt than speacil camping ones as well.
