Terry - I think it should be 18'. My TW has a 16' awning.

bwoodtx - A 16' vintage awning with poles on the ground would work, it would just be a little short. A 16' Zipdee would not work because the arms would not be secured into a vertical rib as required for support.

Bruce,

Generally the awning is 10' less than the TT length. Though the one on my 25' Avion is 16'.

Terry and Kevin are correct. I just went outside and measured mine and it is 15'. Sorry about that.

A 16' would still be too short to mount correctly on your trailer. It should fit a pre 69 Overlander.
