How to Measure an RV Awning - 6 Tips to Do It the Right Way

How to Measure Your RV Awning to Replace the Fabric


The Easiest Way to Measure Your RV Awning!

1) Use a Standard Tape Measure.

2) Have Someone Hold the End of the Tape Measure on the Center of the Front Arm.

3) Walk the Tape Measure back to the Center Rear Arm.

4) The Measurement should be an Even Foot.

5) That is the Size of Your Awning. 

6) Order a New Fabric According to that Measurement.

All Awning manufacturers (Carefree, Dometic, A&E, Solera, Velarium. Airexcel) require the Awning Size (Center of Arm to Center of Arm) to order a replacement fabric. The replacement fabric will usually be 9" to 12" shorter than the Awning Measurement
