How to fit an OLPRO Van Awning!

When figuring out how to fit an OLPRO Awning to your van the first thing you will need to do is decide how you're going attach the awning to your van.

Do you have an awning rail? If so, the beading on our awnings will fit straight into the rail. If you are wanting to use your awnings as a drive away awning, we recommend purchasing a 6-6mm drive away kit to make the process of connecting and disconnecting your awning easier for you!

Do you have a gutter rail? If you have a gutter rail on your van, you can use a Figure of Eight kit to clip onto this, then slide the beading on the tunnel into the other side of the attachment. You can purchase a Figure of Eight kit by clicking here!

Do you have a wind out Awning/Canopy? If you have a wind-out awning or canopy on your van such as a Fiamma, Thule or Omnistore, you will be able to attach our awnings to the channel found in the front of our casing. (You may need to wind the awning out slightly to find this). If you are using the wind out Awning/Canopy to attach the awning, you will need a 4mm-6mm drive away kit as the beading on our awnings are a 6mm beading. You can purchase your 4mm-6mm drive away kit by clicking here!

Do you not have any of these rails? If you do not have an awning rail then our awnings come with straps included which go over the top of the vehicle, either side of your pop-up roof if you have one and peg down the other side. The width of the tunnels on our awnings vary, so please check the length of your van to make sure it will fit.
