How to install a caravan awning?

When doing it for the first time, setting an awning on a caravan or a camper may end being difficult. These videos, describing different models, should help you to install your awning without difficulty.

Practical tips:

  • Install your caravan on a flat surface to avoid different levels for the awning's legs.
  • Don't install your caravan to close to the sea, the spray may ruin the canvas.
  • Install the frame first, beginning with the angles then the legs with the help of several people to lift the roof.
  • Completely close the awning's zips before stretching the canvas and securing the installation into the ground.
  • Apply a greasy product (like a lubricant) on the bars to assemble them more easily.
  • Tightly stretch the roof of the awning to prevent water from accumulating.
  • Once the awning is installed, use coloured tape to mark the frame and the poles. This should make the next assembling easier.
  • To prevent any damps stains or decay, clean the whole equipment and let it dry before storing it.

Super helpful video on how to install a caravan awning. I imagine that when buying a used caravan, having seen these videos will help me know what to look for to make sure the awning is functioning properly. My uncle has been thinking of buying one, so I'll pass this on to him.

I liked that you posted how to make assembling a caravan awning easier for the second installation. It seems like installing an awning over my caravan is pretty tricky, so I need to know anything that could make assembling it in the future easier. Using colored tape to mark the frame and the poles would really help with that, so I'll keep that in mind. http://www.patioworldnsw.com.au/products/atrium-awnings

I'm happy that I came across your post! We recently bought a caravan awning, but I don't know how to install it! Your post was really helpful in that regard, especially with all of the videos that you have accompanying the instructions. The combination of the two makes the whole installation process very clear, so I don't think that I'm going to have any problem setting up my awning! I'll make sure to have your installation steps on hand as I install the awning! Thank you for the help!
