Default Awning on hilo campers, Question

Are the awning fabric standard? Or are they shorter because of the shorter awning arms, and where can you buy them?

I believe they ARE standard. I bought some attachment hardware online about 4 years ago to replace parts of mine that I'd broken. I don't know of a good source for awnings offhand, but I bet an internet search would yield results.

You could also ask JR Repair for help.

I went to Camping World and another local RV shop to get a quote. I gave them all the numbers I could find on the assembly. One of them was the magic number. They even knew it was for a Hi-Lo. So, they are most likely specific to our trailers.

I believe they are shorter in length than a standard travel trailer awning. Look for a tag on the awning material and get the numbers from it. I think the tag is near the top attachment point. But I have a bad memory.

Rich, what are we talking about? Are you saying the roller is shorter or is it that the length of the fabric on the roller is shorter?

I suspect I was confused in my answer to the OP's question and am sorry if I gave a misleading answer.

Good grief! I just re-read the original post and found I WAS confused! Senior Moment again! How the heck did I miss the word "fabric"? I AM sorry!

From the groove at the top of the camper to the first groove in the roller is 81 inches, 3 1/2 to the second groove, then a 7 inch valance, just went out and measured. Boy is it cold out.

Sorry, I meant the length of the fabric from the mount to the roller when extended. I look at that as the length and the width is the what's front to back on the mount. That is confusing. I guess just one word doesn't really explain that.

Not to worry, Rich. I completely misunderstood the original post. *DUH*.

I'm sure the length (from top to roller barrel) is unique to Hi Los. Mine is definitely a replacement and if I FULLY deploy the awning, the support rods come apart. I've measured and found the fabric is about one foot too long.
I've thought about replacing the fabric, but shortening it before install. Tough task, but my Huskie sewing machine can handle it. Bottom line for me, don't fully deploy!
