awning question

Post by surratta »

I'm thinking about upgrading my canopy to something like this: https://www.holidaymotorsportsawnings.c ... -above.php

who has good/bad experiences to share about vendors, brands, design considerations, or whatever else I'm not thinking about?

Andrew,
You might also concider sticking an RV awning on your trailer. The initial cost is pretty high but it's worth the convenience. I replaced the fabric on mine a few years back and it was about $200 for a direct fit. Its a Dometic manual awning.

I actually like that idea, but my trailer door is nearly flush with the roof, so I need the awning to be higher if it's going to slope down. otherwise the door will dig into it when I swing it open.

I have something like this to keep from slicing the fabric with the door.
