Carefree Rafters and Supports

Tighten your canopy and support your awning roller!

Rafter VII with Gas Shock Assist

Eliminates the need to re-tension the rafter when you raise your awning!

All the same great features of the Rafter VI plus Gas Shock assist! Comes with the Automatic Awning Support.

Colors: Satin or Polar White.

Caution: Do not install rib umbrella type metal slats that stretch and dome your traditional canopy. This can permanently damage your fabric and void your Carefree Warranty.



Rafter VII Ground Support Add-On

You can purchase the Rafter VII with the same ground support as the Rafter VI GS.

Colors: Satin with Black castings or Polar White with White castings.

A must for Class A's and 5th Wheels with a high awning rail!

Rafter VI with Automatic Awning Support

Easy and Convenient. Works on all brands.

Swing it out from the travel bracket and attach it to your awning roller. Tighten the knob and swing the lever to stretch the rafter linkage and push the roller away from the RV. Make your canopy as tight as you want (you've got a lot of leverage, so take care not to stress your canopy roller). Stores on or inside your RV!

Colors: Satin or Polar White

Caution: Do not install rib umbrella type metal slats that stretch and dome your traditional canopy. This can permanently damage your fabric and void your Carefree Warranty.



Rafter VI GS with Automatic Awning Support PLUS Ground Support

The Rafter VI GS provides the same benefits as the Rafter VI plus an additional advantage: The Ground Support feature prevents the roller from sagging toward the ground while extended. The ground support and roller work together to keep your roller straight.

OR, if you already own a Rafter III, V or VI, its existing bracket will allow you to easily add a Ground Support - just order a Ground Support Add-On.

Colors: Satin or Polar White

Note: Rafters do not safeguard awnings from water pooling. Use rain release setting to provide for water run-off.



Automatic Awning Support



Fits all awning brands

Works automatically! Simply roll up your awning - The patented action receives the roller and gently supports it, eliminating all the weight and natural sag in the middle of the roller. Unroll your awning and the cradle releases the roller and pivots away from the canopy, ready to accept the roller again when you put the awning away. Will not harm fabric or metal wrap! Will not work with curved side applications.

You can get the Automatic Awning Support by itself, or get it as a standard feature of the Carefree Rafter VI, Rafter VI and VI GS.

Colors: Black or White
