Choose an awning that suits the length of your vehicle and the size of your roof rack and determine the mounts you are going to use to fix the awning.

Your Ridge Ryder awning comes supplied with two L brackets which will work with most roof racks and bars although there may be appropriate mounts built into your roof rack, or mounts available specific to your roof rack brand.

First mount the awning brackets to your roof rack, as far apart as possible.

Lift the awning to the roof rack and ensure that the brackets are as far towards the ends of the awning as possible.

With the awning laid on its front, slide the 20 millimetre bolts into the channel along the back of the awning.

Now raise the awning to the brackets and align the bolts with the brackets, sliding them through the holes.

The nylon nuts can now be wound on a couple of turns to hold the awning in place.
