measuring awning height

Hi there i have a Lunar Roadstar 786 that has a height of 10ft to roof i am after a driveaway awning but confused about the heights quoted.
So folks interested to know how to measure height there is no canopy attached or any other form of brackets so presume a flap or something would have
to go onto or over the roof.
Went to Campbells last week came away annoyed as the salesman was as informative as a 2 year old child
Help!!!!!!

Hi Larryn,
Most drive away awnings have a large flap/canopy that you can either attach to your motorhome (usually by a connection to an already fitted omnistor/fiamma awning) or pull it up against the motorhome roof by (usually) throwing guy ropes over the roof. The height is not too critical but a competent sales assistant should be able to tell you what height the canopy can reach. The fitting is never going to be exact. Good luck in getting it sorted.

This post might get more replies if it was in 'motorhome awnings' rather than 'motorhoming for the disabled'

Just a thought

Hi Larryn,
Since you will need clearance for the door to swing open into awning I suggest that you measure to the roof.
Cheers,
Brian
