Any recommendations on a replacement 12' awning?
We bought the Classic from RV Workshop. The price was right and the service was excellent.
My awning bag also has finally succumbed to the Suns UVs... I was just strapping down my awning to the roof for travel using those 1/2-inch web ratchet strapping across the top of the popup trailer. I finally just removed the awning from the trailer...
I'm thinking of picking a 10x10 or 11x11 patio awning and just scoot it up close to the popup trailer door and see how that works for awhile... I would use the straight legs type... However it seems all of these patio covers are not high enough to allow you to open the popup trailer door so if I continue down this path I will want to extend the legs perhaps. Had the idea of clamping two of the legs to side of the camper. These are cheap enough from WALMART on sale a lot $60 or so... Even if you didn't use them to sit under just outside the trailer door they would make a great cover over the picnic table...
I swapped my OEM Coleman awning with a new Dometic Trimline.
It sets up much easier and has attachments for the associated add a room.
I did have to drill some holes on the legs to allow some lower height settings.
I like it, thank you.
Downside to the Dometic Trimline awning is it's not made up of individual poles but rather an entire left side assembly connected to a right side assembly with a centre bracket. Bend a leg or rafter pole and you have to replace the entire left (or right) assembly, which is quite costly.
We did the same.
Anyone happen to know what these standard bag awnings weigh? I'm thinking about upgrading mine (something about the way it lays torn on the floor of my garage just isn't working out) and I can't find any weight listings online.
I ordered mine through these folks. They were the OEM on my pup.
I prefer the Campout by Carefree of Colorado. Had one on my Palomino and miss it greatly on my current pup.
I am looking for a replacement awning. Do the legs, stitching and bag seem sturdy? The stitching on the OE Jayco awning started to disintegrate (2010 model).
I have looked online at the Carefree and Dometic and they look similar. Any opinions would be appreciated
The awning we bought was a Shademaker. Everything was included and top quality. The support set up (legs and poles) all folds into one assemble that is permanently attached to the awning so there are no extra poles to keep track of and it's much easier to set up.
I would high recommend it.
I currently have a Dometic. As I have said I prefer the Carefree. No guy lines and everything folds up into the rail.
Do you have any pictures of how the legs fold up in to the front rail? I'm looking at buying one of these also and I'm trying to figure out the difference between the Classic and Supreme.
Sorry, no photos. I started to try to describe how everything goes together, but the diagrams on the website are much easier to understand. If I remember correctly, the Classic poles are round and the Supreme are square.
We bought the Classic and there was no issue with the poles being strong enough.
Purchased the Shademaker Supreme. Thanks to all who responded with input
