Awnings and supports in BC

Next door neighbour ("Neighbor" in the US of A ) has a bunch of awnings - various sizes & colours ("colors" in the US) including some for over windows, some for over a slide-out (on BIG RV's) and some that look just about right. All seem to have straight arms.

If U R interested, I can put U in touch with him

Lower Mainland, BC

I'll go check - but from my first somewhat casual look- I'd say that they are all of the roller-with-extending-arms type like are found in places like Camping World etc.

Do you know how they attach to the travel trailer, or do you have photos? Looking for (a small) one that attaches via awning rail.

thanks

They would attach to the awning rail at the top. Then the arms would attach to the sides of the trailer at floor level for the full-size ones. For the window awnings, I'd guess about half-way down the sides of the windows (or even at bottom of windows) for the window ones.

He and his wife are away for the weekend as she needs to have time away from the house after last week's tragedy. (She keeps saying she cannot live in "that house" any longer and demanding to move.)

I'll check with him on Monday

I'll get lengths etc at that time. Smaller ones may fit something about the size of a 16-17 footer, but they seem to all have STRAIGHT arms, not the curved ones that are needed for a close installation on Bolers

I was talking to Kim (Doug's wife) toady. She is still all rattled from the tragedy of a week plus ago, and he is relaxing in the mountains, getting his blood press down in prep for open heart surgery in a week's time.

She called him and he told me to figure out what the pieces are worth and..... (no pressure)

So - Now I'm gonna do an inventory of the RV parts he has got sitting there, and check some on-line prices, take some photos and .....


In terms of awnings, there is one for over a window and one that may be suitable for a 13 footer, if you can use one with STRAIGHT (not curved) legs.

Material is maroon. Brand new, never installed.

There are also a lot of brand new - in the box- grilles for fridges (upper & lowers) plus a couple of water-heater covers.

More details after I do the inventory

Hi Dave,

I'm looking for an awning for our 17' Boler. Can you let me know if there is anything that would suit?

Thanks,

Peter

There are no complete awnings other than the ones for over a slide-out or over a window. They are sorta like this:
Window Awnings by Carefree - Carefree Of Colorado - RV Window Awnings - Camping World

What is there are pieces from the big ones that attach to the bottom of the trailer and have a spring-wound roller top, swing out and lock into place, sorta like this:
Freedom Patio Awning by Carefree - Carefree Of Colorado - RV Patio Awnings - Camping World

None of the ones available have the curved support arms that are (usually) needed for eggs, although they would work very well on straight/flat-sided trailers regardless of trailer construction. In general these types of awnings (with straight arms) are considered to be for stickies & mohos.

The largest complete awning is about 5 feet long and unrolls to about 4 feet, so I'm guessing it is for installation over a fairly small slide-out. There are a couple that are about 2 feet long and unroll 2 feet - they are for installation over windows on the "other side" of the trailer/moho

Ok - I went and got the awning pieces and the vent pieces.

Vents are Dometic RM1222 and the matching upper one VT2411

RM1222 measures 22 X 12 inches and VT 2411 is 7.5 X 22

I forgot to count but there is easily a dozen pairs.

There are also some that look a lot like the RM1222 but have no name and measure 24 X 12 inches

There is a water heater door measuring 18 X 14.5 inches and a Norcold Fridge vent measuring 20.5 X 11 inches

The "slide awning" is maroon and measures 6 feet long, extends to 3 feet and the window awning is 26 inches long and extends 2 feet

There are pairs and some singles of the awning arms.

I will try to attach a picture, but all are similar to the A&E 8481000-401E
That one is 75 inches tall when folded flat up against the wall of the RV and extends from there as well as having its brace unfold up to the top as well. Those are rectangular in cross section and are 3.5 inches by 1.5 inches, measured at the travel latch or mid point. They fit a 3 inch top mount bracket and a 3.5 inch (center to center) bottom mount bracket

These are NOT the kind of awning that fit a 13 or 15 footer - they are the type that fit giant moho's and are often powered awnings.

They are the ones that go on the larger Bigfoot or Escape trailers

If the first picture was upright, the short narrow piece with the lever on the bottom left corner, caught my eye. What else is there like that and can you email me a pic of that alone?
?if 1" outside, 3/4" inside?
