Girard Nova awnings add on?

Hello,

I love the large girard nova awnings that are seen on many of the higher end new coaches.

Question: Does anyone know if these awnings can be fitted on a coach that was not equipped with them from the factory?


I emailed girard and they didn't really answer the question.

thanks in advance

Craig

I suggest you get a copy of the installation instructions for the model of the Girard awning you are thinking about, (from Girard or download it), and decide if the project is worth the trouble.

Anything is possible.... (however the impossible is harder, takes longer and costs more).

Adding these awnings will not be an impossible issue but you will need 120 vac for the motor coming from the controller.

Agree, the Girards run on AC power...and a battery operated remote.
