Curved Roof Rafter (CRR)
Made to our exclusive design curve and shape, the Curved Roof Rafter (CRR) was developed to help overcome wind flap in the fabric of the awning and to prevent water from pooling. The CRR is particularly effective when used in conjunction with our Anti-Flap Kit (AFK).

Our Curved Roof Rafters are available in a Maxi curve and a Mini curve and are widely considered as the best quality roof rafter available. Suitable for most caravan and RV rollout awnings including Dometic, Carefree & our own Sunburst & Coolabah awnings, the CRR is used to keep the vinyl of your awning from sagging, allow water to run off (preventing pooling), as well as keeping the fabric tight and reducing wind flap.
Maxi curve rafter (123-125mm) is suitable for longer awnings on motorhomes or full height caravans.
Mini curve rafter (95-98mm) is suitable for awnings of all lengths on pop-top caravans as well as for shorter awnings on motorhomes and full height caravans.
The Curved Roof Rafter is also available with a tensioning arm, known as a Curved Tension Rafter. The Curved Tension Rafter is a standard Curved Roof Rafter with a tension arm fitted and is ideally suited to awnings 18' and over. The lever action of the rafter allows it to exert pressure and help prevent longer awning roller tubes from bowing.
|Awning Size||Rafters Required|
|11' and under||1|
|13' - 17'||2|
|18' - 21'||3*|
|22' and over||4*|
* We recommend substituting one of the Curved Roof Rafters with a Curved Tension Rafter for these longer lengths.
We also have specialised CRR for our Coolabah Awnings available here.
These CRR have the same curvature as our standard rafters but are fitted with different connections suitable for attaching to a Coolabah Awning.
