Rain Drains with spouts
Located between the rafters & towards the outer face of the canopy, these drains help prevent water from accumulating on top of the canopy which could cause damage. The spouts need to be deployed and free of obstructions when rain threatens. They can be rolled and stored in the convenient pouch when the weather is clear. Oher drainage methods include grommets and mesh “Wilber” drains.
Standard canopies mount onto the Curbside or Roadside of the trailer. A Roadside mount goes on the driver’s side of the trailer, facing the street. Sometimes referred to as a Streetside mount.
Roof End Vent
A roof end vent is a mesh insert with a roll-up cover. This vent provides ventilation for the canopy.
Rise Above Canopy
The frame rises above the trailer roof line before sloping to outer eave. Used when trailer is too short to provide proper slope for watershed. Available on Cantilevered and Fully Enclosed canopies.
Also called a “pad eye”. The ring is attached to the trailer. The end of the rafter hooks into this ring.
The roof end is the triangular shaped piece that caps off the canopy roof at each end. It is typically sewn to the roof and is the same color. Contrasting colors are an option. When canopy extensions are used, the roof end becomes removable with a zipper flap. Roof ends are also referred to as “gables” or “wings”.
Rope Tie Down
Attached to the canopy’s outer eave at each rafter to add stability to the canopy. The tie downs can be secured to the ground with stakes or lashed to weights (water barrels, cinder blocks etc.)
