Hi Folks,

We have just brought a Walker Touring Plus Awning for our Eriba Triton 430GT and are planning our first trip with it next week. I seem to remember there was some very helpful advise on how to erect the awning on the forum. Unfortunately I now cannot locate the thread!!

I would be very grateful if anyone who has a walker awning could advise if there is a quick and foolproof way to erect.

Thanks Maggie

Putting up a traditional frame awning of any make on an Eriba is fairly standard.
- Do not put the pop top up
- Slide the awning fabric into the awning channel and throw it up onto the roof out of the way
- Lay framework parts out on the floor next to the van.
- Erect perimeter framework with front legs hinged 1/2 way up and the end roof poles hooked into locating lugs on van - This is a two person job
- Fold the awning fabric over the frame, hook into place where needed and unhinge the front legs so they are now near full height.
- Fit extra roof poles and put some tension into the fabric.
- Peg down fabric nearest to van and at extreme corners.
- Re-tension poles/fabric, adjust this pegging as needed and then peg remaining points.
- You can now put the caravan roof up.
- Relax, stop swearing and have a drink.
