Which awning will fit my vehicle

How to decide Which Awning is Suitable for your Vehicle

    coachbuilt-measure.jpgvan-measure.jpg 

1st Take some measurements on your Vehicle

Decide where you want to fix your awning on your vehicle and measure the length A. The longest this can be is the length of the Awning Cord (a) on your chosen Awning. For Van based conversions we recommend you ensure the side door can be opened sufficiently to enter and exit the vehicle. For Coach-built Motorhomes check your chosen fixing points will clear any windows and Doors

Take distance B and C from ground level to the point your awning will be fixed to the vehicle. This will usually be the Gutter or Awning Rail or Fiamma/Omnistor Wind-out awning height. If you have no other fixing option and you are going to use straps over the roof the fixing height will be the top of the vehicle.

Then Use our List of Tunnel Sizes to help work out which awning will give you the best fit.

Remember a +(2 x b) is a fixed length of fabric on the awning tunnel that gives you the fixing to the vehicle (a) and 2 elasticated sides (2 x b). 

THE General Rule is you reduce how much of length a you attach to the vehicle to give a longer length to the sides of the awning (2 x b) if required.

As an Example: - For the Khyam Motordome Classic.

From the table below the Total Tunnel Length is 600cm. Using the full length of the awning cord Dimension a= 300cm which will give sides b of 150cm. (300cm + (2x 150cm) = 600cm) HOWEVER if you only attach 200cm of the awning cord to the vehicle you will have side lengths of 200cm (200cm + (2 x 200cm) = 600cm).

We hope you find this information of use. If you have any other questions please email us.

The following information has been obtained by us, the Manufacturers do not provide this information, which we feel is critical in helping you decide which awning is best suited to your Vehicle. If we have not included sizes it is because the awnings have not been released, or we are waiting to be able to erect the awning to obtain measurments.
