Supex Acute Curved Awning Rafter - Black
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.
Newly released in a powder coated mat black finish, the Supex 563VB 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 (V3): Supex recently 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 tightenning knob, which is less likely to break if dropped etc
- The bracket end is now stainless steel set within moulded plastic
- The brackets included and are powder coated black to match the rafter

The minimum recommended usage per awning size is outlined on the following table:
|11' and under||1|
|12' - 16'||2|
|17' - 20'||3|
|21' and over||4|
- 1.5 to 2.5m extension
- Larger Acute Curve (approx. 100mm) to provide more tension and better facilitate run-off

- Wall bracket included (in matching powder coated black)
- Unique rounded finish on top to protect the awning fabric from wear
- Lightweight and durable aluminium

- Drill a hole in the awning tube at an appropriate height
- File / de-burr the hole in the barrel to ensure no damage to the fabric occurs when closing
- If you're after a larger curve please see the Supex 563VA "Acute" curved rafters. These may better suit older awnings who's fabric has loosenned over time.
- This rafter is not suitable for Box Awnings such as Fiamma. Please see our separately listed Fiamma Awning Rafters.
- The new black caravan awning rafters look great and will nicely match black awning framework and off road RVs with black checker plating / decals etc.
