how to measure an rv awning

More Awning, More Shade

Solera XL Provides 20 Percent More Shade

If you're getting a new awning, why not get more of it? This Solera XL awning comes with an extra 1'8" of fabric, giving you more shade to enjoy on your patio. This is a definite plus for Class A motorhomes, fifth-wheel campers, toy haulers, and RVs with a slide-out under the awning. If you've got a large camper, you want a large awning to match.


Auto Rain Dump

One thing that can quickly ruin your camping trip is a broken awning. It's not easy or cheap to replace, and you can't really enjoy your patio without one. A big hazard to a healthy awning is rain: water pools in the fabric, stretching it out and putting strain on the arms with extra weight it isn't designed to hold. Next thing you know, the fabric rips - the arms snap - the whole awning comes crashing down, slamming against your RV and leaving you with a big and costly problem.


For traditional awnings, it's up to you to run out in the rain and lower one of the arms yourself so the water can run off. If you're away from your RV when it starts to rain, you can only hope your awning isn't damaged when you get back. This Solera awning solves this problem: it comes equipped with an automatic rain dump function. As soon as rainwater starts to pool in the fabric, one of the arms will automatically drop, giving your awning a pitched angle. The rainwater will then run off to one side, taking the pressure off the awning and your mind.


Adjust Arms for Best Shade

Solera XL power awning manual pitch adjustment

It's hard to get your awning in just the right place to keep you in the shade all day, especially if you have one that's pretty high off the ground. Sometimes you need just a little slant to your awning to keep the sun out of your eyes. The manual pitch adjustment built into these arms gives you that option. Simply pull on one of the arms at the friction joint to drop that corner. It comes down easily and holds itself there for as long as you need it. When it's time to retract your awning, there's no need to readjust it; the awning will slide back in no matter what pitch the arms are set at.


Durable Vinyl Fabric

Black Fade Awning Fabric

The durable awning fabric holds up to the rigors of the outdoors. It's made of premium 13.5-oz vinyl, which is an upgrade over the 10-oz fabric used in many awnings. In addition, this fabric features heat-welded seams to prevent leaks. The fabric is cold-crack protected to -25 F, so it won't crack or degrade during cold weather.


This awning also comes with a built-in weatherguard to prolong the life of the fabric. This extra-thick layer of fabric lines the section of the canopy closest to your RV. When the awning is retracted, the weatherguard is the only section exposed to the elements, providing the rest of the fabric with a layer of protection when the awning is not in use.


Installation

Solera XL Awning Installed

An awning rail is required to anchor the fabric of the awning to the RV, and your first step will need to be installing one (LC715216 - sold separately) if you don't already have one on your RV. You will need a minimum of 4-1/2" between the awning rail and the top of the entry door. You'll also need 78" of open space on the RV wall - from the awning rail straight down - so that the wall-mounted brackets for the awning arms can be installed.


The roller tube comes with the awning fabric already mounted and attaches to the awning arms. The other side of the fabric slides into the awning rail on the RV. Then use the included self-tapping screws to secure the arms to the wall-mounted brackets. The awning drive motor wires into the included switch, which can either be connected to your battery or wired directly into your RV.

I just finished installing the Solera Power Awning. I was impressed with the durability and engineering of this awning. I did have to make some modifications (shims added to the vertical supports), but that was due to the critical length of the awning, and where it was placed on the motorhome. I also custom painted the vertical supports to match the motorhome.

I did deviate from the suggested installation. After installing the top rails, I mounted the right vertical support first, then slid in the awning roller. I then held up the left side of the roller with a ladder, and installed the left support. As a result, we only needed two people instead of three. I think it would have been more difficult to try to slide the whole unit (left/right supports and roller) into the rails as one unit. The reason being is that this unit (as a whole) has some weight, and would be a bit unwieldy!
I am very satisfied with the final product and how it operates, and we are very much looking forward to hitting the road and trying it out!



by:

I like the awning because it was very easy to install and easy to operate. I installed in an hour using several neighbors to help lift it into place. The wiring was straightforward. I did have an issue because I had to mount it next to a window frame but by making a few shims out of aluminum stock at the fastening points everything looks and works great. After several days at the beach it was never adversely affected by the wind, and I could easily move it as the sun moved and it kept me in the shade.



by:

The online application made it easy for me to find the right product. The ordering process was easy. The right product was sent. The only problem was that the 2 pieces were delivered on different days. However, I think this is the shipping company's fault and not etrailer.



by:

Well, shortly after installing it, it would not respond to the switch and needed to be deployed manually a couple turns and then would unwind with the switch. I know I should have said something but I don't use it alot and just forgot about it



by:

I ordered the Solara awning that you expressly said fit my model number however the mounting arms are to long and run into a running light and leveling jack button so I either have to modify my trailer or buy a different awning.



by:

It was a great addition to my trailer. It was easy to install and it works great.



by:

Awning great install went well , cover for motor was broke needs replaced , The 2 assembly’s where just rapped in plastic when unpacked found motor cover broken .



by:

made a stressful situation better. Knowledgeable and accommodating. I was educated by her as a new RV owner, and you have earned by business for a long time to come. Impressive and professional - a great customer service experience. I own 2 small businesses and this is teh exact type of talent we are always searching for.



by:

The install was easy and the shade works just fine. Very satisfied with it.



by:

Etrailer always has the correct part and their customer service is exceptional. Shipping is very fast. They are great to work with, whether I am repairing or upgrading my RV.



by:

Awesome! Just unbelievable communication to begin with which made everything easier! Also the information available through details and videos also made the choice clear and simple. My arms on awning bent and the awning was old faded so it made the decision for me..time for new. Installation was super simple and easy. All of 30 minutes took longer for my friends to come and put hands on it than it did to install. Once on just incredible the more coverage!!! The pitch adjustment is just a pull so simple and this units arms are much taller to the point I can walk under them (6’4”) which I could never do before. Really happy and etrailer shipped way faster than expected.



by:

The project is a 1988 Holiday Rambler Aluma Lite XL. The original 21 foot manual awning needed a lot of work so I decided to go power. The 13 foot extra long awning is just super. Lots of good shade. Needed a little special attention to the installation because of the structure attachment points. Turned out great, does a super job!



by:

So far so good! The awning was slightly damaged in shipping. They offered to pick it up and send another. Angela B. was helpful in sending me replacement parts instead. while I haven't used it yet except while installing, it seems to work well.



by:

Well had problems with the truck freight, arrived in two shipments. The first the end of awning roller tube was damaged,awning was not damaged so I accepted. The arm shipment box was damaged but arms looked fine, but afterwards I found no switch, mounting hardware, or instructions. Etrailer got all I needed for the installation but it took a while to get the missing parts. My advice on accepting delivery is if the box is damaged don’t accept it!! Install went well, my son, grandson, and installed in a couple of hours. I really like it. Will get so pictures and post later



by:

Unbelievably great product. We are now the talk of the campground. Neighbors helped us install our new electric awning the foot and a half more for no drip on our concrete pad. We are so pleased. What a great product. Installation took two hours.



by:

My order was not delivered



by:

Great service. Thanks!!!



by:

Good product although be cautious of the advertisement claims and the warranty.



by:

Great awning easy install definitely need 2 people awesome shade and easy to adjust



by:

Nice awning. We like the extra shade and also being able to tilt the awning to accommodate the movement of the sun



by:

Love the awning but if you roll it completely out it buckles the arm you have to give it a push to start up. If you stop 1/2 round still on roller it works perfect.



by:

This awning arrived exactly as promised and performs exactly as expected. We purchased this last year as a replacement to one damaged on our travel trailer by 60+ mph winds. The install directions were well-written and easy to follow. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this product.



by:

Great awning, excellent transition between colors. A bit long for shipping, recommend picking up direct if possible. Overall nice awnings and beautiful once installed. Oversize awnings don’t like wind, be careful using if any wind, can be difficult to wind up if windy, motor is slightly undersized. Overall very happy, beautiful awning and hardware.



by:

AWESOME TIME FRAME. CLEAN DELIVERY



by:

Had a hard time having this item delivered via UPS with damaged item received. etrailer was great and helped by sending a new item. Again had a hard time getting any local RV shop to schedule an installation time so I finally did it myself with the help of my wive and neighbor. If I read the instructions correctly they read to line the vertical arms with the awning rail. I wish I mounted it at least 2" lower as now the roll is above the awning rail so when fully retracting the awning it pulls downward and not horizontally inward.

To date I have camped with it about eight times and I have noticed a small tear in the awning fabric near the awning rail. Just hope it does not begin tearing. Again, being mounted too high seems to put undue stress on the awning fabric when fully retracted. Also, it does not do well with any wind, but is fine when I stake it down.

On the good side, it is so nice to have an electric retractable awning which makes set up and tear down that much easier with camping. The extra length adds to shade and the adjustable pitch is a snap.

Overall I am very happy with the product now that I finally received it and got it installed. I just hope the awning material does not tear or the motor give out

  • What Is The Height Difference Of A Solera RV Awning When Retracted Or Extended
    The head/roller tube of the Solera XL 12V Power RV Awning # LCV000334961-362243 should sit nearly in line with top of the wall mounting brackets when extended. The head/roller tube will sway in the wind a bit so it could potentially sit above or below this line by a few inches.

  • Replacement Awing For a 2016 Keystone Montana High Country 305RL With 17' Dometic Awning
    Based on your measurements it sounds like your 2016 Montana High Country 305RL has a 17' awning. I did check this against manufacturer information and they show it as coming with a 16' awning. The awning measurement is taken from center of awning arm to center of awning arm like you took and the 1/2" difference may just mean the arms are not perfectly level. It appears that they installed a Dometic awning which you can use the Solera 17' Replacement Awning Fabric # LCV000334409 as a replacement....
