How do you measure a RV awning for replacement fabric?
To correctly measure for your replacement awning fabric, measure the distance from the center line of the left arm to the center line of the right arm. Round up so that the measurement is whole foot increments. The awning you are replacing will measure approximately 10″ less than the distance between the arms.
How do I know what size my awning is?
Cut the string at the point where it meets the ground at the front, having made a quick visual check to make sure that the string hasn’t broken or detached from the peg to the rear of the caravan. Measure the length of the string, in centimetres. This is your caravan’s A-Measurement and your caravan awning size.
Are all RV awnings the same length?
All awnings come in whole measurements such as 14 feet, 15 feet, and so on. Neither Carefree nor A&E give measurements in inches, although you can find sources online that custom-cut whatever you need. I’ve also received calls from folks who’ve asked if they could cut down the canopy I had to a smaller size.
