Yeesch! Hey, as long as you are highjacking......is the awning you are talking about that is difficult the one I am talking about? The bag awning? I don't want to get something that is a pain in the arse to use.
Sharon we were in Eastern Oregon and had our awning out on the old stick frame. A thunderstorm came up while I was away, My wife had a time getting the awning secured before it blew away. I was impressed by the Horiizon because you just crank iout out and in One person , easy job,

In addition:
I MUST add the 8ft bag awning we have is not the easiest to open and close. can do it myself, but having a second pair of hands is always nicer anyway. If "mobility/agility" is an issue, I would REALLY recommend something more user friendly, like a crank model!

Also IF you have to retro fit a channel for ANY awning you will most likely end up with a series of expossed rivet heads on the inside of your trailer. This is NOT going to be a concern for me, as this spring, when I repaint the inside of our Trillium, I'll coat the heads with a shot of paintable white silicone before I paint.
Care must be taken will any awning not to let it get airborn in any windy situations. Our awning lifted up and overtop the trailer at a meet last spring, maring our new paintjob. NOta big concern, just some more touch up work to keep the trailer looking as best as we can

Sharon,

I just got my new bag awning in this morning. It was a very easy to set up and take down - I did it by myself in no time. I am tall, so I didn't have a problem reaching the bag to unzip and roll everything out or putting it all back in. Hope this helps.

David

Yeah, height DOES have its advantages, ...well at LEAST sometimes, like not being able to stand upright inna Boler but a Trillium is bearable

I've never been in a boler and I do scrape the top of the tril - but I agree, it's bearable!
