It should be about 16'. Measure from the front rib to the rear rib, that will be the length you need.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

I believe you should be looking at the trailer length minus 10'.

Measure the awning rail that's on your trailer. Some vintage models go beyond the ribs, but most don't.

Is the roadside awning option for a 28' Classic really just a single 19' awning? Dave Jenkins Our Community 1 08-17-2003 03:07 PM
