Awning Size Guide

 

 

Q1/ What size of Awning do I need to fit my caravan?

A1/ The size of awning needed to fit any particular caravan depends on the measurement in centimeters from the ground around the awning rail and back to the ground. This can easily be measured as per the simple diagram below.

Awning Size Guide

In recent years caravan manufacturers have mostly made life a little easier for us and they quote the ground to ground measurement in their brochures or on their web sites. If you still have problems working it out, e-mail us with the year, make and model of caravan concerned we may be able to look this up for you.

Each awning manufacturer has their own way of converting this ground to ground measurement into an awning size but this is how it works for the 3 major manufacturers that we stock.

Q2/ Will a that porch awning fit my caravan

A2/ There are two facts that you need to be sure that any specific porch will fit any specific caravan. Firstly the height from the ground (H) to the awning rail (not the overall height of the caravan as this will include the roof-light and TV aerial) and secondly that the caravan is long enough (L) to accommodate the length of the awning where the roof is relatively flat. Provided these two points are met the porch will fit your caravan.

Awning Size Guide

It is sometimes advisable to check on your caravan where the porch will fit and see if the sides might interfere with any windows, doors, hatches etc that you might want to have open when the porch is erected.

N.B.
L - Maximum length of Porch Awning
H - Height of awning rail from ground.
X1 - Second side window will clash with porch side when erected
X2 - Caravan door will open into side of porch.
