Hi all

F-I-L bought generic awning rafters for his van, then decided he didn't want them as they are straight not curved, and passed them to me.

Is there any reason they shouldn't be installed on a pop-top? I struggle to find any images of them installed on a pop top. (Theres no anti-flap, just three rafters).
Anyone installed them themselves? Big job? (drilling into awning roller bar is the only real concern)

thanks
Andrew

Its only two holes Andrew, how could that go wrong :o

I had rafters on my 16ft poptop, but to be honest if theyre not curved they are of limited value. Poptop awnings are a bigger pitch than full height vans so pooling isnt an issue. You wouldnt require 3 tho
