I have a Coromal Atlas 432RTP Pop top.
Has anyone added an awning to the rear, over the door?
I was thinking of riveting a sail rail on to the roof section and inserting shade cloth or such like with the relevant poles etc.
Anyone done this or recommend what I can do.
PS I had thought a similar ARB awning that I have on my tray back but the hinges would be a problem where the awning has to be horizontal or the hinges will break.

Hi Ian
I have a small rear door van and the previous owner attached sail track and then had sail rope sewn into a tarp, I once did similar for a front awning on another van. However i had a rear bag awning that also goes on the back of a 4wd that I use for the van. The bag cover simply has sail rope sewn into it and I just slide it into the sail track. The poles roll up in the awning.
Any good canvas person will be able to sort something out for you.

Hi Ian, I have an Atlas 567 OR. If you look above your door you will see a channel and all you do is open the left side with a hacksaw and you can run a shade cloth through the channel just like on the roll out awning. Hope this helps as I have done the same on the right side of my van. Regards John L
