What awning brand fits this track?

Hi All,

Our 1991 Bigfoot 17 came with an awning track but no awning. Does anyone know if this is a generic track or does it fit a particular brand/model? Thanks.

I think that would fit every awning I have seen. The ones I have seen are a large piping that the awning wraps around. It slides into the C channel.

Tim, most awnings called Bag Awnings should fit your awning track, The prices are all over the map. Keep an eye on Craigs list for used ones or EBay for a new one. A friend picked one up a brand new one off of EBay last year for about $100 for their Scamp.

As stated above, the track pictured is a standard awning track and will fit any awning from pulldown through bag to temporary.

My advice is to go for the pulldown if you can. I did on my '78 Trillium and have never regretted it, and you've got a couple of feet more width on your Bigfoot!

The 1/2" C-channel is pretty standard for most RV bag-awnings as others have already said.

Yours also seems to have a 'gutter' and slots for trim to cover the rivets. I haven't seen that before...I like it!

It might not be a bad idea to put some trim in the slots over the rivets to help prevent leaks.
