RV Part Shop carries a wide assortment of RV awnings. For vertical arm awnings and replacement awning fabrics, we normally stock lengths of between 14 and 21 feet. These are on the even foot (14', 15', 16', etc.) when measuring correctly as described below. These sizes will fit almost all RVs out there in the market with vertical arm RV awnings.
However, we can also get awnings custom-made on a special order basis in sizes other than the 8 lengths normally in stock. Contact us for more information on the cost and lead times to produce a custom awning in the correct length for your application.
Remember that an RV awning
purchase consists of two separate purchases: the roller and fabric section and the arm set.
RV Awning Measuring
Note: For more detail on how to measure your awning correctly, see our article:
How To Measure For RV Replacement Awnings And RV Awning Fabrics
Here is a shorter version of that process:
If you have an existing awning or if one was previously installed on your RV, you will need the following measurements to select the correct awning or for us to advise you on a replacement:
Width: Measure from the center of one arm over to the center of the other arm (or between the previous bracket locations.) This measurement will be generally on the even foot. If you're close, round up or down to the nearest foot. For example, if you get 13' 10", you probably have a 14' awning.
Height: Awning arms come in different heights to fit different heights of vehicles. It is important to get the correct arms so that you have the maximum slope for drainage while not having the roller too low to the ground when extended. Measure from the top bracket down to the bottom bracket. The awning arms should be selected to be in a matching height range to the measurement.
If this is a new installation:
Find a location near the bottom of the sidewall on which you are installing the awning to attach the bottom brackets. This should be at a level where there is a solid stud, floor joist, etc. behind the wall to anchor the bottom brackets into.
Identify the location along the roofline with solid backing to mount the top brackets. There should be enough space above this location to install a 1"-2" awning rail to hold the fabric to the side of the RV. The retracted awning roller will sit at the level of the brackets
Identify two locations on the wall where there is unobstructed vertical space (no windows, appliances, cargo doors, etc.) that are an even number of feet apart (14 ft., 15 ft., 16 ft., etc.)
Once you have planned the location of the four brackets, take your measurement as described above.
Tip: If you have a new installation or if your awning rail is damaged, remember to order the awning rail separately from the roller/fabric and the arms. It is not included in the purchase of either of those awning components.
