Re: Awnings

Well I have had it in a rain storm didn't do to bad I sloped it a little more so it didn't hold much water. But I wanted to test with the rain with it out. And I did set under it with beer no fishing pole. As for the wind there was some wind and it didn't do to bad but if it would have got much stronger I would have tied it down or rolled it up .

Re: Awnings

FWIW... I'm in the process of collecting parts to put together a "store bought" awning. I scored an 18' footer for free. The fabric was SHOT but I found several sellers on E-Bay selling replacement awings for around $120. You just gotta ask questions. Some will have a pinhole or stain. The one I have coming has the valance with it too! You can fix or patch a pinhole and a stain?? WHO CARES??? Its gonna get stained somewhere along its life anyway right?? Mine is gonna be a Carefree of Colorado brand as soon as I find some arms for cheap enough. The awning arms I got with the awning looks to be Frankensteined together from spare and homemade parts and has a wierd way of locking in the rolled up/travel position and I dont like it. My awning front arm will be mounted just behind the front door and ahead of the side window on my bus. I would like to have it over the door as well but its not gonna come out that way. If I did, I would have to figure out a way to mount the lower part of the rear arm to my rear wheel! The rear arm will come out perfectly just behind the rear tire.
