Awning Upgrades - Conqueror Trailers
Ostrich wing awning on drivers side of UEV 490 -A 20 second set up and 25 second pack up. By far the fastest awning available and a good wall kit make it a winner for the driver's side only.
Tough Touring pole less awning brackets for UEV 490 pictured while fitting. After these are installed, A full length Aluminium back plate is required to build a mounting surface for chosen forward folding awnings like the Darche 270 and Bundu 'L'.
Recommended poleless wing awning options for UEV 490
UEV 440 and UEV 490 Trailers cannot run wrap around awnings over the Bed at the front as the bed pitch is higher than the awnings swing out arms...
Some awnings recently produced run at 180 degrees along the passenger side edge of the trailer - seemingly these will suit, covering the kitchen area and not fouling on the pitch on the front bed, however they are all too short to fit up readiy to the side of the trailer, as it requires the ridgid mounting brackets we make to be installed at either end of the trailers body - The Bush Co xt Max, Darche 270 and Bundu 'L'All fall short of the length back plate required.
To Fit any of these awnings to any Conqueror trailer, our brackets need to be installed either end, followed by a full length back plate between them.
The awnings can then be mounted with the hinge point fitted to the rear bracket end.
We do manufacture the Back plate bracket for local customers - however it is too long to freight out - If you require this back plate for your install - Local engineers can usually fold one up for you. They will need 4mm Aluminium and a sheet metal folder/Pan brake capable of folding 2.5m Lengths.
Ostrich 270 wing awnings can be fitted on the drivers side. To Install an Pole less wing awning - strength of the mounts is paramount. We designed a bracket system (pictured above) that is rigid, fits up the awning to the edge of the angled roof area, doesn't interfere with anything, and can be adjusted using a turnbuckle to ensure the awning sits perfectly level with the trailer.
The Bracket system consists of 12 parts and takes a full day's work to install. You will need a nutsert tool - 10.5mm drill bit and drill. All other hardware are provided in the kit.
The Conqueror UEV 440 Awning is easy to set up and pack up and is very well built. We highly recommend this awning for the 440.

We have also manufactured a new Awning mounting bracket for the UEV 440/490 that rivets on (negating the need for Nutsert tools).
See image below. If you are ordering this bracket please specify the awning type/brand that your fitting and that you want the "Rivett on" bracket type. Shear strength remains the same.
