Andy, Thanks for your help with the awning sizes for our 345. Can you give me a quote for all five awnings plus shipping to Fredericksburg, TX 78624. We are ready to order as soon as my wife decides between her last two color choices. We have already gotten quite a bit of stuff from Inland RV and like your site. In fact I plan to place a small order later this morning when you open. Please reply to lance@vonprum.com or call 360-213-6035. I may just try to reach you when I call in my order. Thanks for being there for us.

Thanks for checking Andy. Mine is a 1983.
My mechanic says that I need a 16foot awning even though the rail length is 22 off feet.
He says that the awning I need is not the same length as the rail.
Does this sound right?

Awning hardware "MUST" be mounted to a main bow.

Guessing at the size, doesn't get the job done.

Zip Dee's manual states that a 16 foot awning will not properly fit any Airstream or Argosy motorhome ever built, from 1977 to 1988.

The specified awning length for a 1983 310 Airstream motorhome is 22" 5 1/2 inches.

The good news is that the original awning can be converted to the powered awning.

The "CFR", cover, fabric and roller tube along with the spring, can be used with the powered model.

BUT, all the hardware must be replaced with the powered awning hardware, etc.

As more information ibecomes available, we will post it as an update.

Thanks Andy, I have seen pictures of 310 with awnings of different lengths
Some finish behind the bedroom side window some finish behind the wheel arch. I guess as long as the hardware at each end is mounted on the ribs either length is fine.
Are there other exact lengths specified or should we just measure 'rib to rib' to determine the awning length to order?

Measure from the center of a rivet, which is the center of each main bow.
