Can't help with what pole goes where but it should be reasonably
obvious. Putting up an awning is easy, first sort your poles out and
lay them approximately where they will go, then pulld the awning
through the rail and make sure that it is the same distance from the
ground at both ends. Then start to erect by putting in the centre
poles, then move to one end and erect that and then join that end to
the centre, go to the other end and put the poles up there and connect
to the centre pole. If it has zip out sides and front put them back in
( it's much easier to pull the awning through if the panels are out,
much lighter ). Put pegs in at each corner trying to get it as square
as possible, then peg the rest. Finally go round and tighten all the
poles as much as is possible, if it's slack it will flap about in the
wind.

missy elliot came up with the following;:

model: trio elegance 12/775

got no instructions how to put together, or what sequence to start,
some help would be great as new to caravanning.

ps: just hope it is all there!


Some trio's have small spikes on the poles and some don't. be careful
putting the spikes through the eyelets in the awning, especially when taking
it down, though that's some way off yet ...

The middle pole is usually one with five 'branches'. One side has either a
ball and cup or might have a hole which is the one that is the centre roof
pole going to the centre top of the caravan. One will be about three inch
long 'opposite' to this, and is the canopy socket. One is sometimes quite
long and is the leg socket, the two others are the front side piece sockets.
Each end corner has a curved part a leg socket and a canopy socket, they are
handed, with the hole or ball socket facing the caravan to take the roof
pole. I'd suggest you lay the poles out first and do a dry run putting up
just the frame / poles before trying to put the awning over it.

The roof poles generally use hooks to fit into sockets that are generally
stitched into the awning, but might be missing, in which case you'd need
some sockets fitted to the 'van.

The vertical legs generally have plastic 'feet' and have an outer and inner
extending part that locks with a hole and button. The front rails also lock
with a hole and button, into the corner and centre webs.

Sounds awkward but is quite simple when you've seen it done once.

Whereabouts are you? An experienced caravanner might easily help you sort
it out.

Default REQ instructions/information for trio elegance awning, please.

thanks for the info, my upright poles have had spikes on but now
broken off, also found out no pads stitched in the awning that hold
the ones to the van, but as you say i can get removeable ones to go on
the van wall. i have had someone contact me through cc and they have
sent me a drawing of the poles ect, so maybe have a go at putting the
frame up at least! also been told will have to get some mushroom pegs,
as the metal pegs i have are all bent out of shape and you can trip
over them in the awning.

thanks for your help.
ps: in south lincolnshire.
