Sprinter Van Thule Awning HideAway – 8.5 Foot -Wall Mount
This product is compatible with all Sprinter Vans. This includes both the 2500 & the 3500 version.
Is this electric or is it a manual awning?
The stock version of this product is a manual opening and closing version of the product.
Is it some kind of wire that I pull or is it something else?
The opening and closing of this product are done through using a crank.
What if the wind blows and I’ve got my awning out… Is it going to have problems?
Thule made this awning to have spring-loaded tension. The tension absorbs the wind and/or other resistive forces trying to bend the awning.
Is there some kind of support system for the support legs? I’d like to be able to adjust them if possible.
Thule has made something called a “Thule Quicklock”. The system provides support and the ability to adjust the height of the legs.
Where does this thing mount?
The awning mounts to flat, vertical surfaces. This product comes with flat mount brackets to make that happen.
Does the opening and closing of the system work off some kind of gear then?
Yes. Thule says that this is a gear with a telescopic crank.
What is the length of the awning again?
The official length is 8.5′.
How big is the projection of the awning?
The awning has a 6-foot projection.
Any idea how much this thing weighs?
It weights 39 lbs according to what Thule has told us. However, that is the weight of the product itself, it is not the weight of the product and the shipping box together.
So… What is the color of the fabric of this awning?
The official awning color is Anthracite.
Not confirmed to fit 2019 models as of yet. We are currently researching what parts will fit the 2019 models of Sprinter vans.
