I have recently become the owner of a 2012 Lunar Clubman SB. I have the opportunity to purchase a good quality used Dorema Daytona awning size 16. Could anyone advise me if this be ok on my van or too big ?

Did the caravan come with a handbook?
If so it should specify the length of the awning rail so come back with the measurement and I can check if a size 16 is okay or not.

Hi JWAL
According to the isabella site its, Lunar Clubman SB 2012 A measurement is 1005 Isabella measurement 1000
That size in Dorema is, size 15 1000-1025
Dorema size 16 is 1025-1050
Bigger than you need really.

But hang fire, wait for someone else to confirm as well.

According to Dorema a size 16 fits 1025 to 1050, my info says a 2012 SB uses a 1005 awning.

Yes, I have checked with Bradcot awnings as well and arrived at the same measurement of 1005 cms. which is a size 15 in Dorema's size chart so agreed that the a Dorema size 16 is too big unfortunately.

Thank you all for your responses.
It seems the answer is that it would be too big and that I should scource a size 15.

Beware that a size 15 is not universal as each awning manufacturer applies their own size chart. The advice is to always go by the 1005 cms. length and check out the size with each brand to be absolutely certain.

Hi JWAL
Have you thought about resizing the Dorema to the size you require.
Had my Dorema altered from size 13 to a size 14 by a place in pontefract named Trio Pair.
The cost was 180 and the workmanship was excellent
