Default Clever '96 Roadtrek Awning repair?

Hi All,

After working so hard to get my '96 190 Popular in great shape, I realized I never did anything with the awning!

The original opening rod is still present and I can unwind and wind it open and closed.

But, the support beams were broken and the parts on the end of the awning's outside edge are broken and/missing. The original bolts are still there.

I made some quick 70" poles to act as supports while I cleaned up the vinyl. There's only one small tear three inches long and I could patch that with some good quality tape.

Does anyone know if there are replacement poles and hardware available? I'm thinking of making my own, but wanted to check here first.

The best option would be to find a couple of telescoping poles so they could fit in the shelf above the passenger seat. (70" poles don't fit there.)

After I washed the fabric, I thought, "Hey, this might be worth using!"

-Pete

What brand is the awning?

I have a Fiamma, and have had great success buying replacement parts from their US location in Florida.

Mine is a Fiamma as well. I have the "FP" number as well as the serial number.
Thanks for the lead.

I just sent them an email. They have no phone numbers to call.
I'll be curious to see how long it takes for them to reply!

Here's their telephone number: 407-672-0091.

Hope they've recovered. They had a bad workplace shooting there about a year ago.

Thanks for the phone number. I got online with them and they helped me identify the model I had. In the end, I ordered new parts from them rather than trying to hack something. Spent about $250, which is less than a new awning for sure! Hope I ordered the right parts!

Thanks for the leads. I figured after spending close to 500 hours stripping the RV and adding new walls, cushions, etc., I ought to finish he job and have a decent awning! I had no idea the legs would fold up into the awning itself!

Glad they were able to help you out.

It is interesting the way the awning legs are contained in the edge that extends. One area of trouble I have is that the hinges-- that permit the legs to pop out of their stored position-- bind a bit.
