$30 Entrance awning (manual rollup)

$30 Entrance awning

Okay, I'm really cheap and after living in Roswell, refuse to put up a full length awning. But this was interesting. I find the "entrance door" awnings ridiculously priced. This is for a 44" wide awning. A bit too wide for us... maybe. Would we do this? Not sure. Maybe after we leave here. The tropical storm strength wind we enjoy daily kinda prohibit a lightweight awning of any kind. It's why we have been kicking around a variation of Bermuda awnings for the bus (solid awning that will fold down for travel or tropical storms/hurricanes) on all the windows. It will also help shade the heat gain from the sun during the summer. During the winter, we should be able to raise the awning up enough to let late afternoon sun in to help heat things up a little.
