Awning rail


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, we have recently bought an Alphard with pop top but are having trouble getting awning rail fitted as doors curve over top slightly and there is limited space.  Anyone have any solutions or are we looking at magnetic rail, which reading reviews aren't great. We are in North Wales

I recently fitted an awning rail by removing the gutter cover and fitting the rail in it's place. It is held in place with adhesive mostly, and a single self tapper on the leading edge. IMG_20240518_155636.thumb.jpg.7d7d1f5e268dba967d147d49d54a3c82.jpgIMG_20240518_153156.thumb.jpg.14c3a04c14974b21d8166b52923d1f3f.jpg

Thankyou, that looks like a good option.  Where did you purchase rail from?

I bought it from here. I searched high and low, and this was the only place I could find that was selling it in a single 3M length, and in black. Delivery is quite expensive at £18 because of the length.  https://batteriesandsolar.co.uk/products/flexible-awning-track-black-3m-g512bk?fbclid=IwAR2yAVt2117vou5OC3n_MIH_rnSaIsyKCppsGMuwk4aspPWEgK0zRa1fis8

Ours has one fitted so that its hidden under the drivelodge pop top.  I think it's been pop riveted onto the roof, but believe it was done as part of the original pop top install by Northstar.

I did originally intend to fit a rail that would be hidden by the pop top, and it would certainly have been cheaper and simpler to fit, but I liked the idea of being able to use the rail without the pop top being up.
