The C-Channel Awning Rail for VW T4/T5/T6 with Elevating Roof can usually be fitted under a pop-top and is concealed when the roof is down. This C-profile rail enables a drive-away awning or sun canopy awning to be securely attached to a VW camper van.
Due to the differences in pop-top roof configurations we reccomend reading our How to Guide on fitting with an elevating roof and making sure you check all measurements before ordering
To Fit: If required, cut down rail to the exact length. If your elevating roof is wide enough, position the rail at the very edge of the roof to the side of the scissor hinge/gas strut with the C-profile facing outwards so it is concealed under the pop-top when closed. At this stage it is easy to put a gentle bend in the rail to follow the roof curve before screwing, riveting and/or bonding in position.
For SWB vans, fit the rail towards the rear of the roof so the sliding side door has enough space to open without damaging a drive-away awning connection tunnel. For more in depth information about positioning and fitting an awning rail under an elevating roof - see our How To page.
A sun canopy type awning will just slide directly into the C profile. Use a 6mm to 6mm Drive-Away Kit with a drive-away awning to make it easier to detach and reconnect if you drive out for the day

*Please note: due to their length, awning rails cannot be processed by our courier as quickly as standard parcels – they are too large for conveyer belts and require manual handling. Consequently, although a Next Day Delivery service will be prioritised, it is not a guaranteed to arrive Next Day.
**Unfortunately, due to the length of this rail, it cannot be delivered outside the UK and there is a surcharge for Offshore Isles, Highlands and Northern Ireland.
