Regarding the stitches and steel awning - I have actually sent mine back to them.

The quality is unquestionably very very good, but the fitment just isn't great for a caddy.

Shame, as I could have got a lot of use out of it, but it just flaps about to much imo.

Plus being a wetsuit material, it's like a sponge in the rain. Takes a good while to dry out.
Yea it's a great design, but I too was skeptical about the neoprene material.
I had actually been in contact with them to see if they would make a caddy specific awning as there is a market for it, but unfortunately sounds like it's gone on to deaf ears.

Unlike the T5 the caddy has different rear door sizes, so it fits well on one side, but not the other.

The pole holding the doors apart holds right between the doors, but with the low roof line of the caddy, I kept bumping my head on it...then the whole thing collapsed!

Keeping my eye out for a side awning one now. That way I can lock the door and leave it up. The rear one is a PITA if you wanna leave the van for a few minutes. Gotta remove it all to lock the van.
