    Default Wrap Around Awning

    Good Day. I have a challenge in that my rear door window on the Caravelle is touching the awning when open. Iím trying to find a wrap around that does not have the 45 deg cross strut, rather in a different place. Any suggestions please.

    Unfortunately the is not with me right now for pics, and the lift bracket does not work as the rear door is curved upwards substantially.

    Can you not limit the height to which the door opens with a rope stay? Need a picture of your tallest family member under the open door to check headroom.

    Thanks for the input guys. I donít want to be fiddling anymore than I am at the moment. Looking for another option rather. Canvas and Tent in Durban make one without the 45deg arm , however, they have been messing me around since middle November, so I have moved on.

    Chris will need a 3.2m BunduAwn, can definitely fit directly to the tent. No arms at 45 either.

    I think you can only mount a 2.45 to a Bundutop because of the overhang, any larger and you need to mount it to your roofrack.

    2.45 on a standard top, yes. 2.95 on a standard top, no. Chris has a 3m tent. Will confirm tomorrow and refer back.

    Thanks for this. Iíll do some research with Bundutec. I was advised that the Bundu awn would not work, but since asking on the forum, it seems the practical solution.

    Chris, just confirmed a 3.2m awning will definitely work on the 3m tent.
