Figure of 8 for drive-away awnings
This 'Figure of 8' is used with the Keder (or Kador) strip for easily connecting awnings to the fixed awning rail (or lead bar of wind-out awnings) on caravans and motorhomes.
This set-up lets you put your drive-away awning up and then by simply pulling out the Keder strip, you can the drive your vehicle away for the day. On your return, drive back up to your awning and then slide the Keder strip into place, which stops you having to try to slide the entire awning strip down the awning rail.
This 'Figure of 8' comes as a single 2.4 metre length.
If you do not yet have an awning rail on your vehicle, please see our AW01 Aluminium Awning Rail - with lip, which can be used on many vehicles, or our the AW02 Awning rail - without lip, which is similar to those used on the 1960's VW Splitscreen Camper Vans.
If you prefer to have shorter lengths of this profile we do the Outwell Kit for drive-away awnings, which has a length of standard Keder included, but when it rains you often get drips where the lengths butt together, hence our long length. We also sell an extra wide Keder strip to be passed between the Awning Rail and the 'Figure of 8'.
