awning end cap
Thank you for the reply jiwawa. The awning end stops are not the same . The small one the one I have fits to the rear of the van. The front one is about 8" long and diverts the rain water down the A post. The middle picture shows were it used to be.I have never see this awning rail fitted to a caravan.The awning is fitted to the awning rail using a figure of eight plastic strip common with most campers.I am sure I have seen them on small auto sleeper vans but it would appear as they get older no one is carrying parts.
So it's not a wind-out awning, it's just a rail for feeding an edge-of-material into, like on a caravan?
If that's the case, would the other end-stop not just be a mirror image of the one you have? In which case I'd imagine (I know nothing about 3-D printing) that it was possible.

There must be someone on here that has an older camper with an awning . This would not just have been used on a vw it would have been used on most vans in the 90s.

Thanks for the reply it is not possible to use 3D printing as I do not have the front awning stop
|jiwawa||Is that a candidate for the 3-D printing people talk about?|
Hi Graham. Thank you for your reply. Its only the rubber end caps we are looking for. Please see attached photos.
Do you know what make the awning is?
Do you have some photos of it?
Awning end caps
I hope someone on here can help me. I have a 1998 20 year old vw t4 Bilbo camper . I have had it for 19 years.It has a full length awning rail that finishes with two black rubber caps.Over the years the sunlight has made them brittle and hard I need to replace them. I have contacted Bilbo who have supplied me with new stops but they are for a T6 a later model and do not fit my awning rail .They put me in touch with a company called Vantastic but there end caps do not fit. The only advice I am getting is to change the awning rail at a cost of £150.
There are lots of older campers out there its just knowing were to find the parts
Can you help
