How to Measure a Caravan

Your tent or caravan awning must be replaced. Or maybe you have bought a new Caravan. Great! Always nice when you can find something new to be or? But you actually need what size of the awning or sail and how to find out the right size at all?

First, it is important to know that this measure is officially indicated as the circulation measure. On the vehicle information to the so-called circular measure probably. Circulate on the Internet lists, which you can find the circulation measure of your caravan on the basis of the caravan trade mark and year of manufacture. These lists are useful, but please rely not only on it. It could be that perform caravan manufacturer changes to wheels or axles, which leads the circulation level changes and no longer to correct the information on your vehicle or in the Internet lists.

Therefore, we recommend all our clients always to measure even the circulation measure of their caravan. Why say that, you might ask? To protect you from unnecessary trouble and avoidable costs for purchasing a down sleeping bag from computerminus.com!

Why determine themselves the circulation measure?

Let’s imagine what fuss you have, if you have purchased your tent or awning in the wrong size. You must bring back the tent (in the case of a purchase in the shop) or send it back. This is in itself still be overlooked. But if you have folded the tent, pulled by the rail, there will be almost always traces of them. You will understand that the tent is then no longer in mint condition. The seller can then no longer as new tent sale the tent and is forced to withhold a certain percentage of the new price by the amount paid by you for the tent in this case. You are responsible for this reason also for the correct circulation code.

Measuring is know

But how do you proceed? And it is important to know which type of trailer you have or doesn’t that matter? Yes, the caravan type is important. We differentiate between normal (just) and aerodynamic trailer. The caravan of the brands Eifelland, Kip, Beyer country and Delta are in the aerodynamic anyway. If you clear what type of trailer you have, you can start with the measurement.

How do you measure a “normal” caravan?

First, make sure that you have a long rope or tape measure or a cord at hand. To properly measure your caravan must stand on a flat surface. Place the caravan horizontally on the wheels without turning off the supports. Measure the length from the ground underneath the caravan rail in a straight line, then upward, then through the caravan rail to the ground on the other side. The total length of the rope that you have used, is the circulation measure of your caravan. Measure this length with a tape measure and voilà, there is your circulation size.

How do you measure a “aerodynamic” caravan?

Now, you need a long rope or a cord to measure correctly. Place the caravan horizontally on the wheels without turning off the supports. Measure the length from the ground underneath the caravan rail in a straight line upwards through the caravan rail. On the oblique side at a height of 185 cm, you measure in a straight line to the ground. You do not continue so the caravan rail.

Measure down to the ground

In explaining how one should determine the circulation measure, we have mentioned that you need to measure to the floor. Unfortunately, it is our experience that many people at the trade fairs is a mistake. You then measure up to the underside of the Caravan up to a pier or up to a concrete slab. The so is not the right way! If you measure in this way, the appropriate measure no longer aligns with the caravan. A bridge is in the tent and tent not across a bridge.

What must you look for when buying an awning or sail?

Thus, the necessary preparatory work is done. Now comes the fun part: choose a tent or awning.

The our House brand of hyper camp tents are equipped with a so-called Aero flap. You fit 99% of all “normal” and aerodynamic trailer, but note the following: the height of the caravan rail must be between 235 and 250 cm. Exceptions are all low and extremely stromlienenförmigen Caravan as the Eriba touring, Kip compact, polar 400 and Tabbert wind. Have a very oblique caravan, an awning can be generally better slightly too tight too far. Otherwise, the front of the Caravan is namely mostly too big.
