Supex Acute Caravan Awning Roof Rafter 563VA - Spigot End
Suitable for most caravan and RV roll out awnings including Carefree & Dometic A&E, curved Roof Rafters are used to keep the vinyl roof from sagging, ensuring 100% water run-off as well as keeping the fabric tight and reducing wind flap.
Did you know awning damage is the most common type of insurance claim within the RV industry? Curved Roof Rafters were introduced to help overcome these two common problems experienced by caravanners with roll out awnings:
- Wind Flapping. Wind flapping in the awning causes the caravan to shake which can lead to restless sleep plus cause damage to the awning, frameset, roller, and fabric.
- Water Pooling. Water pooling is a common cause of awning damage.
The manual 563VA is a high-quality rafter with a rounded top surface to protect your awning from wear when the rafter is in place (unlike others in the market in this price range). In addition, the aluminium and powdercoat thickness is also greater than the other universal rafters that we've inspected, making this rafter our recommended choice.
NEW VERSION (V2): manual have just released a new version which includes a number of improvements over the original version. These include:
The rafter is thicker and stronger while still being lightweight. It features a larger round tightening knob, which is less likely to break if dropped etc
The new version is finished in powdercoated pure white (previously a cream color)
