I suspect that it depends on what kind of awning you want....

Carefree of Colorado Dealer Search

I found a dealer near me that does nothing but RV Awnings. At the time I ordered mine, I felt that the installed price was very reasonable.

Avoid certain dealerships that shall remain nameless but are associated with a national "club" that offers Roadside RV assistance..... Without mentioning any names, I investigated their prices last year . (not to mention that at two outlets, they had NO idea how to deal with a 'glass trailer and wanted to put the anchor above the beltline! )

(I actually wound up taking my trailer for a drive and getting the Bigfoot factory to put an awning on mine, so my experience is a bit atypical.....)

"Carefree of Colorado" as suggested by Frederic is a good brand - like 'em a lot.

A&E is now sold as "Dometic" - I have no experience with those

Herschel, have you checked with your manufacturer?
I see two different awning shown in the photographs and 2 prices in the options list. One for the side and one for the rear.
Two good threads on awnings:
Best Awning option....
advice re: awnings for 13' Trillium

Which awning may depend on what sizes you can accomodate, how much weight your body will take, etc.

Apparently there are
"slide awnings" - which I have had limited experience and NO success with on a previous trailer -
Bag awnings and
Patio Awnings

If your welling to take a little adventure to BC, Escape trailers has put a number of awnings on various FG trailers and I am told the prices are very good.
