How to select the right size Replacement Awning Fabric?

To avoid buying the wrong size of the replacement roll-out awning fabric for your caravan awning, please do read carefully. Because once the package was opened, there are strict rules for exchange*.

Follow the following steps and your order won’t go wrong.


Verify the size of your originalย 

There are 3 measurements you can cross-check which size you should purchase:

  1. Overall Awning Size: By measuring pole to pole distance, you get the awning size.
  2. Fabric Size: By measuring the existing awning fabric length (the side which parallels your van), you get the fabric size. Note: the extension length from your van is a standard/common size of 8ft (approx 2.4m)
  3. Barrel length: By measuring the aluminum profile section (barrel of your awning), you get the profile length measurement, which indicates the maximum length of fabric it can take.

Caravan Privacy Screens MeasurementDON’Ts

  1. DO NOT use your caravan size as a reference when selecting awning fabric size. Different size awnings can be fitted on identical size caravans
  2. DO NOT use awning size as fabric size. In general, fabric size is approximately 10″ (5″ on each side) shorter than the awning size. This is the space allowance for the awning structure, anti-flap bars, and guide ropes to secure the awning.
  3. DO NOT guess. If any uncertainty, contact us via message/email or call us directly during business hours.
