I was desparate to get an awning on the cheap. So I was keeping an eye on ebay for a few weeks to see what came and went. It's tough when you ebay not to just bid on the first thing you see the first day you start researching. especially when there is more than 10 items out there.
Anywho, I found a company in Grand Rapids, MI that was selling new awnings with hardware for $350 (21'). I was like, thats it. But they only had a Blue one on auction. So I emailed them and they said to call in sometime and see what they had. I did, and they supposedly had "one more" left in stock in the red. So I nabbed it up. after the 21' awning rail, and riding cradle, and $80 shipping, my total was about $480.
The red (marroon) on the awning doesnt match my red exactly, but its good enough. I wish I would have got a black to grey one now. But its all good. It works great I love it. Check my website for the company info, cause I havn't seen them on ebay in a while. Or do a search for Great Lakes Awning in Wyoming, MI (outside Grand Rapids).
