We are considering a sun canopy for our new Freedom Sunseeker (or "Poletta" as they are called here in Norway). Not having received the caravan yet, it is a bit difficult to figure out what to buy, as I have not been able to figure out the width of the awning rail.

Have found these two products, and guess they both will fit.

This has a 265 cm width on the carvan side:

This has 250 cm width on the caravan side (could also be ordered as 300 cm):

Perhaps there are any Freedom owners that could take a look?

Thanks a lot for any advice!

Eagle.

Hi Eagle and welcome to the forum,, I have just been out and measured my Freedom and it is only about 2.2 mtrs before it starts diving round the corners so I doubt either of those would fit without resorting to a pair of scissors.

Thanks a lot, David. Very nice of you to go out to measure your Freedom.

The 250cm one would go approx 15cm down on each side then, so perhaps it could be done - comparing this unusual application:

Or prehaps it is better to look for something that is less than 220cm wide.

Thanks for helping, David.

I would imagine the Isabella one would look very much like the video and curve round the same amount and be fine and give pretty good shade and would look ok.

Hi Eagle

I'm struggling to share a picture with you, but I'll try. We got ours from this website and we are very pleased with it.

Now for the picture:





Enjoy your new Freedom!

Good times and great adventures await...

Sorry Eagle, I put the photo in Dropbox and Google Drive, and neither of them seem to work on here
