The absolute BEST way to get your correct awning measurement is the good ole string way I'm afraid mate
Takes two of you, (or you could secure it to the ground with a knot at the end where it touches the ground), and you just need to take the string and measure from the ground at one end of your tin tent, (straight down from where your awning rail ends), then take the string along the entire length of your awning rail and back down to the ground at t'other end. Measure that string and Bob's yer Uncle and Nelllie's yer Auntie, job done.
Having fallen foul of the awning size guide in a tin tent handbook myself, I'd only ever trust the good ole method in future. Ended up with our new tin tent that we had to the awning reduced after getting the size recommended in our handbook only to have it w-a-y too big and flapping about for the entire first fortnight. Thank heaven's for Tent Valeting Services who came to our rescue to reduce it.
Life's too short for housework unless it's in my tin tent
