Yes, shipping rates from Europe to US are high, sometimes twice the price of shipping the same item by the same carrier from the US to Europe - I've never known why!
If anyone wants some help with sourcing/shipping an awning from Britain, let me know - I live 2 miles from this place: Awnings Direct
However, I think there are a few issues:
- the majority of caravan awnings are intended to provide protection mainly for rainy conditions, not shade for sunny conditions, so they tend to have clear plastic windows
, limited ventilation and limited screening;
- most awnings are designed to slide into the standard awning rail fitted to most Euro caravans, so that would need to be added to an egg;
- all awnings are designed to work with a vertical-sided caravan, so the curved side of some eggs could be a problem.
