Sunsetter House Awning on the Bus

Recently, we were invited by a couple to check out their sunsetter awning. It was on their house when they moved in and they don't want it. They are either going to give it away or sell it really cheap. I am not sure which yet. But... I want to make sure that it will work on the bus properly before picking it up. The sunsetter awnings are not made for RV applications. I have read in several instances where they have advised not to do it (liability?). My question is... what limits a home awning from being used on a Skoolie? I have searched Google, the Skoolie forum, etc., but have yet to find any conclusive advice on whether or not it can be done. Most people seem to say that it doesnt have a lock that can cause it from unfurling while driving. Couldn't we just fabricate a lock? I know there is one more board member using it successfully on his shuttle bus conversion.

Any tips, or advice? More specifically, any reason NOT to do it?

Re: Sunsetter House Awning on the Bus

you can make it work, bolt it on as good as you can, and make something that will keep it from coming out when your driving, as long as holds it will work just great, and you can beat the price. just make sure it wont come out

Thanks! I feel better about it. I was thinking I could fab up a latch system to hold it in while driving. The thing is in perfect shape
