VW T25 AWNING RAIL
ONE PIECE AWNING RAIL MADE BESPOKE TO YOUR REQUIREMENTS
COMPATIBLE WITH MOST POP TOP ROOFS WHERE IT CAN BE HIDDEN AWAY OUT OF SIGHT.
ALSO SUITABLE FOR HIGHTOPS etc.
Why a Camper Essentials Rail?
At last, the perfect alternative to either clipping Figure of 8 to the gutter or using pole and clamp with the risk of it coming off and scratching your van. This rail can be hidden away under most pop top roofs. This is proving to be very popular with many of my customers. This rail is a single piece of aluminium rail which is discreet and smart looking with chamfered ends to stop your awning being snagged. It is also in another league to some other options you may see which come in two sections or worse still which are just a J shaped piece of metal relying solely on getting the right tension on the Figure of 8 sections (no advantage over your existing gutter). Not only are they charging not much less for a completely unfinished rough, square ended rail, the Figure of 8s will come un-clipped on those other rails if it gets a bit windy… Not a problem with a Camper Essentials Rail as the beading on a sun canopy can be fed straight in, as can an awning if you don’t want to drive away or if intending to drive away, simply use the Kador Bead and Figure of 8 for the ultimate attachment that won’t come off even in stronger winds!
This rail is a far better option than messing around with suction cups and metal rods, clamp and pole systems or any other method with the risk of it blowing off and damaging your van or messing around with ropes and tying your awning over the top of your van and risking the ropes rubbing and scuffing your paintwork. Here you have the perfect solution to simple and secure attachment of sun canopies and driveaway awnings.
How and where to fit.
“Whilst fitting is pretty easy, if you’d prefer me to do it for you, I can offer a fitting service – please call 07900 600886 to discuss.”
The Camper Essentials rail you’re buying is supplied as a self fitting kit with full comprehensive instructions (and free personal expert telephone advice if needed), sealant, latex gloves, alcohol wipes, masking tape and stainless steel screws. It will go on high top vans, vans with pop tops either hidden under the lip of the roof or just underneath it – the possibilities are endless. Could also be used to fix a draught skirt to the bottom of your van or inside the tailgate or across the back of the van for a sun shade.

How to use to attach an awning or sun canopy
Once fitted, this rail is super quick and easy to use. After lining your van up correctly, it literally takes less than 1 minute to attach your awning with a Figure of 8 and about 10 seconds to detach it and be ready to drive off. In higher winds or if you decide to fit the rail lower down toward the doors, I would recommend using a Kador awning bead strip which feeds into the Figure of 8 and the Awning Rail. This attaches the two together in the most reliable and weatherproof way, although it will take marginally longer – still only a minute or two. I can supply Figure of 8 sections and Kador awning bead at an additional cost if your awning was not supplied with them and will not charge any extra for postage.
Plus £16.99 Postage and Packing for a Courier Service. This may be more expensive than some competitors but they cut the rail in half in order to get cheaper postage. This leaves you with a rail which is not nearly as good. I actually make a loss on the postage but believe it is essential that you have the best rail possible.
3m of Kador Awning Bead – £19.99 plus Free P&P when ordered with a rail.
760mm Figure of 8 – £4.50 each plus Free P&P when ordered with a rail.
I have sold several hundred of these during last few seasons and this which have proved to be very popular and the feedback I have received has all been very positive including the ease of fitting and the comprehensiveness of the instructions – please look at my feedback! It is a system that works extremely well – has no problems with water ingress or anything like that and gives the best attachment – well finished and engineered and the possibility of bespoke service.
I can also make them to fit at the bottom of the van to fit a draft skirt or across the rear of the van if you wanted a Sun Canopy off the rear doors. Anything is possible.
If you would like your rail fitting or would like to collect it personally, I am located near Totnes, Devon.
Because these rails are made to order please allow a few days for for them to be made and delivered to you, however I aim to get them out as quickly as possible, however in peak periods this may be slightly longer.
Please specify at the time of ordering whether you’d like a standard 306cm rail or send me a message to request different length and also supply a contact phone number for the courier. Failure to do so will delay your order.
