Where do I find an awning?

I have tons of questions...

What's a good source for a retractable awning for the side of the bus?

Cheapest would be the junkyard off another RV or trailer.

I have been dreaming of trying to rig one of the automatic sun setter awnings that they sell for house porches. I don't see why it wouldn't work.

jc whitney has some or maybe a popup would work?

I looked around myself and a used would be the best deal but for the short term we bought a 12' x 12' pop up from Harbor freight for $75 bucks after tax which beats all heck out of the price for a new roll up. can't find the one I bought online right now but if you check at the store they usually have some in back. this was all I could find online: http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/D ... mber=93196

I bought one at wal-mart that looks just like the one in that link for less than $100, I think it was on sale for$89. We love it!

I just bought the WalMart one, and it's easy to erect and it's sturdy. I needed a tent like that for an event I am doing this weekend, so I can write it off, and throw it in the back of the bus for when I actually get to go camping
