Bathroom Window Awning on a Tiffin

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever installed a window awning on their bathroom window? We can not use our main patio awning that much because of the wind and thought if we had an awning over the bath window it would be a big help. Down side is that we would not be able to mount to any of the metal wall studs, sides or top. Does anyone know of a molly that would work in styrofoam wall insulation that Tiffin uses? Don't want to rip the wall apart because stress of the awning when open. This would be installed on a 2008 Allegro Bus. There is plenty of clearance around the window to put a 36" awning.

 First thing I would say is a Tiffen should have sufficient material in the wall. As in the wall itself should be fairly strong for this project. You could remove the interior window trim to investigate as to what is there. Do not push out on the window so you do not break the seal or have the window fall. Remove the screws slowly and it should come off easy. You May see there is framing there that may extend up for support. The other thing is to look early in the morning at the side of the rv wall. See if you can see the framework showing up from dew on the exterior. Also with putting adhesive behind the awning base it will grip the whole area.

 Also look for other Tiffen coach’s to see if they put them on other units. Even look online at units for sale to see if they have window awnings

.I have worked on several through the years and it could be done. There are brass inserts that could be installed to help also fit attaching it to the wall. You could use 3m 5200 for adhesive and sealer. Never to get the base off again.

  Other adhesives could be used.

 

  Some thoughts,,, Vern
