How long an awning rail and how far out should the awning go?
I'm still doing the tarp - sometimes it is nice to have a big area under shade or rain cover. BUT am looking at putting a track on for an awning Marti out in Calif. has a solid reputation and decent prices for an old style pole awning for my camper. Vintage Trailer Awnings Testimonials
Just not sure on the length of awning (and rail) I should get. I measure just over 6 ft. of flat surface above the door on the 13 ft. Scamp
. Any longer than 6 ft. would involve bending the track.
So in an awning what would I be looking at? A 6x8 or would a 6x9 be reasonable? I guess the limiting factor would be bigger area = more stress on track. And more poles.
I would think a 6x8 awning would just need two poles at the outer corners, would that be in line with what others have or have seen? 6x9 I start wondering if it would need a pole in the middle of that 9 ft. side.
Just to be clear the 6 ft. side is attached to the camper, the question is how far can I come out without getting into problems.
