Awning Size - Fleetwood

Recommended Posts

Anyone know what the correct awning size is for a Fleetwood 560-4?? The dealer said it was a 950 but the (rather vague) owners manual seems to indicate it's 1025. ..

 

Thanks!!

There is a greater darkness than the one we fight. It is the darkness of the soul that has lost its way. The war we fight is not against powers and principalities, it is against chaos and despair. Greater than the death of flesh is the death of hope. The death of dreams. Against this peril we can never surrender.

They want Green motoring???  I can do that - I've got 9. 5 tons of Green motoring - that does 2. 5 mpg & 30 mph flat out in permanent 6-wheel drive!!

Hi Neil

 

When we had our Fleetwood, we ended up having to buy the next size up than recommended as the Fleetwoods are really high vans. Although I realise you can't email to ask, that's what we did in the end as every dealer we went to recommended a different size! I second Atom's tip to measure it youself as Fleetwoods are notoriously difficult.

 

Good luck

Thanks all!! We were over there yesterday stowing away the rest of the kit from home so I ran a tape meassure over the channel. Making allowances for the lack of "bend" in the measure I was using I make it more or less the 950 the salesman told us!!

 

Means our existing awnings (Pyramid Orion 3m and Sunncamp Ultima 390) should still fit!! :D

Hi there, Hopefully i may be able to help further, According to the 2009 sales brochure which i have in front of me the Awning length for your 560 -4 Fleetwood Heritage, ground to ground should be 10. 25m.

 

Hope this has helped.

This is what the 2007 owners hand book gives as well. But as I said above, measuring through the awning channel ground to ground measured approx 9. 50 Metres. This is the figure quoted by the salesman too when we asked. I suspect it might be a misprint in the manual. ...

Hi again, just looking at the brochure for 2007-8 and 2009 and they all state a size of 10. 25m, so i very much think this isn't a mistake, I am not an expert, but just thinking out loud. You may need this stated size to allow for a unlevel pitch. If the pitch is falling away from the side of your van this is possibly where the extra size is needed.

I would go for the 950. I used an awning that was a size smaller than stated in the handbook and it fitted perfectly. Mine was the 560- 4EK

this site seems to have all the awning sizes for most fleetwoods

 

http://www. cuddles. a. ..t/fleetwood. htm

 

It says 1025 for a 2007 560-4

 

measure it yourself,makers manuals cannot be relied upon for awning sizing. ..........as many have found to their detrement. cuddles take their sizes from model/maker manuals,they dont measure themselves,as do many references. ............so beware
