Stock Awning Size

Does anyone know the correct factory awning size for a 2006 Flagstaff 831RLSS? I purchased mine used and the previous owner forgot to take it down in the wind. I measured the two brackets that are still attached to the camper however, they don't really match up with any awning size.

I believe it is a 20ft awning that should be on there. Does anyone know where this information could be found or should I measure bracket to bracket and then round down since I know they are measured usually center to center of the brackets.

Thanks in advance!

For example my trailer has a 17' awning as listed size but it takes 16' 7" fabric.
Do you still have the roller ? Or no ?

Thanks for the reply, no unfortunately I have nothing but the feet that the hardware goes into on the bottom of the camper. It's tricky because it is either a 20ft or 21ft. I am obviously going to replace the hardware (have to) but, I don't want to put extra holes in where those brackets are so I have to find the size somehow. I have the sales brochure from that year and of course the manuals but, it doesn't mention any specific size. I might have to wait for someone with the same model to chime in or take a gamble.

I think I have a 2006 brochure in the house for the flagstaff 832 bhss tt we used to have.
Might be worth a shot.

I just had a new awning installed on my Puma 25RS. It measured about 20 Feet. It was a Dometic. I can look on the part numbers if you want me to. I have all the info out in my trailer....or I can drop the awning and look at the part numbers. Be glad to do it tomorrow in the daylight.

Thank you all for the replies. No need for the part numbers. I am able to find all the available part numbers out there. I just need to find out what size should go on there. I have a .pdf of the 2006 sales brochure. Some floorplans show the awning size and others don't. Of course, the 831RLSS floorplan doesn't say anything about an awning. I'm going to try and take a few more measurements tomorrow. I may even end up calling Forest River to see if they can give me any information. Unless, I am able to find someone else with the same trailer I probably won't have much luck finding the exact size. Thank you all so much for the replies.

That should be the first thing you do, not an afterthought.

Wow, if you didn't want to reply you don't have to.

I took multiple measurements coming up with in between sizes, checked all available literature and then asked the question on the boards thinking it would be the best option before a last resort and calling Forest River.

Could you imagine if every single person on this board contacted Forest River before ever posting a question? I could understand if this was a warranty question but, it certainly isn't that.

Sorry that you had to read my post, I just joined this board a few days ago, with most boards and forums on the internet everyone is eager to help everyone out just as the folks above did or people do all over the forum.

If you feel I or other people should be calling Forest River first before posting, I am sorry you think that way but, have a nice day and I apologize for making you read my thread.

Sensitive much??

All I was saying is that the manufacturer will know exactly what they put on your trailer. I was trying to help you save time and get the actual facts on your trailer instead of relying on guesses from anonymous internet posters who cannot see your trailer.

Are you new to the online world?
