Awning

Found a great deal on an awning but I would have to transport it and its 19' long. All I have is a SUV with are car top carrier. I'm afraid I will bend the awning tube. Any ideas?

12' 2x4 or 2x6 under the awning tube for support

Tie the tube to the board, then the whole thing to the car.

Dont forget the red flag/rag.

I'd be concerned about the SUV roof metal kinking or something, so I was thinking maybe remove the fabric and tie the roller underneath the SUV?

Take whatever you're going to be installing it on with you?

I agree with Midniteoyl, it should be fine riding on the top of the SUV. After all, it's built to ride on the side of an RV! Take some padding to wrap around and under the 2x4 to protect the roof of the SUV. Old towels taped or bungee corded should work fine. Tie it through the doors to secure it to the roof.

How about a twenty foot section of drain pipe? Not too expensive. Should keep it straight for the ride.
