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.
Before ordering, check that there is at least 20mm clearance between the the existing roof edge and the underside of the elevating roof - measure length required.
To Fit: If required, cut down rail to exact length. Position the rail at the 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 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.
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
