After setting up, it provides a very strong connection- when we strength-tested it by pulling the canopy away from the van, the whole van was rocking but the canopy stayed strong.
It is also very easy to put on and to take off. One person can set this sun canopy up easily!
It measures 240 cm wide along the length of the van and 200 cm deep, distance extended from the van.
The fabric that we use for this classic sun canopy is the same specification cotton material as the 1960s Westfalia roof canvas.
The colour is the same as the original Yellow roof canvas.
The sun canopy has been manufactured carefully with three brass pole eyelets with strong backings along the front edge.
It comes with three height adjustable (188cm to 235cm) upright poles and this allows it to be erected in variety of ways depending on the conditions and the shade needed.

This sun canopy is shower-proof and we recommend using in fair weather.
The comparison between C8540 and C8540P:
First of all, both canopies are exactly the same in terms of size, colour, materials and shape.
The only difference is at the connect part. For C8540, it comes with the original Westfalia designed rubber trim which can grip on the VW T2 rail gutter nicely. For C8540P, this is designed to use metal gutter pole and 3 gripper clamps system to replace the Westfalia rubber trim. This pole and clamps set up is ideal for non-VW vans and caravans with rain gutter to use this sun canopy. In this set up, it also comes with a 6mm piping which can slide into the awning channel on a motorhome or trailer tent.
