Step by step guide - Ultra lite with Rhino platform rack

Step 1

Slide your four black unistrut nuts into the 4 ends of your platform rack. The nuts should be placed in with the flat face down.

Step 2

Then mount the platform adapter brackets to the provided rear mounting rail approximately 200mm from either end using 4 silver channel nuts. Tighten these until they are fingertight (they should still be able to slide back and forth on your rail).

Step 3

Bring the brackets and rail behind the back of your platform and position it to be connected. Using the black channel nuts and allen head cap screw (M8 x 20mm), bolt the rail in place. From here, tighten the other screws in place when you are happy with their positioning.

Step 4

To finish off the rear attachments, slide the turn-knobs on the underside of each end and place the sliding hook on the opposite side to the awning’s eventual placement.

Step 5

Across the long side of the platform rack where your awning will be mounted, measure 1650mm from the rear mounting rail and mark that point. Using another 2 channel nuts, fasten the hook rod so the near side sits at the measured position.

Step 6

Slide your awning into the rail at the rear, lift up the front of the awning and bring it to sit on the front rod. Use the elasticated front strap to fasten the awning and tighten all the turn-knobs.
