Supex Slight Curved Tension Awning Rafter (V2)

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:

1. 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.

2. Water Pooling. Water pooling is a common cause of awning damage.

The Supex 563V 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 powdercoast thickness is also greater than the other universal rafters that we've inspected, making this rafter our recommended choice.

NEW VERSION (V2): 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 new version is finished in powdercoated pure white (previously a cream colour)

Don't risk getting the old stock - grab the improved version from Campsmart today!

Recommended Usage

The minimum recommended usage per awning size is outlined on the following table:

Awning Size Recommended
11' and under        1
12' - 16' 2
17' - 20' 3
21' and over 4

 

Specifications include:

  • 1.5 to 2.5m extension
  • Slight Curve is just enough to keep tension on the awning fabric (for most awnings)
  • 12 Month Warranty through Supex, a prominent Australian manufacturer of RV Parts & Accessories
  • Wall bracket included
  • Unique rounded finish on top to protect the awning fabric from wear
  • Lightweight and durable aluminium
  • Powder coated white

Installation Details:

  1. Attach the bracket to the RV with 2 screws into the desired position
  2. Extend the awning out to the fully openned postion making sure the key way is facing down
  3. Drill a hole in the awning tube at an appropriate height
  4. File / de-burr the hole in the barrel to ensure no damage to the fabric occurs when closing

Our Notes:

  • 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.

Supex Slight Curved Caravan Awning Rafter

By: on 12 February 2018
I was advised by Campsmart to use these slight curved rafters instead of the large curve rafters as my awning was brand new. They worked a treat in recent heavy rain with the awning angled slightly down at one end to also assist in water removal. The fairly high wind experienced before the rain hit was initially a bit of an issue with the awning ballooning up then banging down on the rafters even though the awning was as tight as it could get. This flapping noise was quickly fixed by fitting awning de-flappers at each end of the awning. I recommend the Supex rafters, together with the de-flappers to have a peaceful night's sleep and preservation of the awning.

I bought 2 of these and cannot believe the difference they've made in conjunction with 6 awning deflappers. Means I can leave the whole thing up overnight and not stress about the wind and damage. Great product.
