Same benefits as the Rafter VI with an added feature!
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. They work in combination to keep your roller straight. 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.
This center rafter support is recommended for all awnings 18' or longer.
Stores on or inside your RV! Swing it out from the travel bracket and attach it to your awning roller. Tighten the knob and swing the lever that stretches the rafter linkage and pushes the roller away from the RV. Make the canopy as tight as you want!
This center rafter support is recommended for all awnings 18' or longer. The gas shock eliminates the need to re-tension the rafter when you raise your awning. Comes standard with the Automatic Awning Support
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 VII and Rafter VI GS.
