New option for ParkLiners - Installed Awning

ParkLiners are now being offered a Fiamma 45S awning that is over 10' wide and will project over 8'. The first one was installed yesterday in a long process that involved making a template so the 2nd and following installs will be much easier. The awnings will be anchored with a substantial backing piece inside the very upper parts of the starboard side. It will be offered on new campers as well as for existing ParkLiners. While I do not have a picture of it extended yet, here's a teaser:



As soon as I get new pics with it extended from the owner of this ParkLiner, I will add them here.

I have other pics from my visit this past Saturday I will get to as I can. I already posted a few of their custom chassis somewhere else.

Enjoy!

Frank

This is a great awning. I'm glad to see ParkLiner offering this for their customers. I hope many take advantage of it.

We put one on our 16' Scamp before we left on our cross country madventure. I can actually put this awning out without Craig's help when necessary. It is also a bit wider than the old Scamp awning giving us a little more coverage over the door. Craig even came up with a new piece that holds the door open under the awning so we can leave it open on warm, rainy days.

That's great Josie! Got any pics of it extended? I would love to see one on an egg!

Thanks,

Frank here that is the awning Scamp offers. We ordered it for ours after asking for a demo. It's only 8' wide for the 13's. Bigger of course for the 16 and 19 models. Here is a link to the Scamp FB peg that shows the operation in a short video.

On the thread Flamma Awning! you will find a video of one on a Casita at Post #16 as well as photos of them on various Scamps.

Although the Flamma is a vast improvement over the old Dometic/Catalina awnings Scamp was using for years if I was in the market for a new awning I would also give the CareFree awning a serious look. Escape uses them and people seem REALLY happy with them as far as how easy they are to put up and take down and the biggie is there is no gap between the trailer and the awning.

Here is Carefree. You have option of removing arms from the trailer and standing them upright. Easy up, easy down.

Glenn, which Carefree awning model provides that seal between the awning and the trailer that Carol mentioned? Looks like yours is sealed as well?

We have the Flamma awning on our 2013 Casita and find it much easier to use than the Dometic on our old Scamp . One of the reasons I did not like the awning on our old Scamp besides being difficult to deploy was the fact that there was no gap between the awning and the roof . Our Scamp had a foam seal between the awning and the roof which trapped dirt , water and leaves causing the roof to stain and making it harder to clean Plus there was several rivets that were covered by the seal which leaked and were almost impossible to get to , I realize when it rains ,water run through the gap but I prefer that to having to scrub the black stains off the roof 4 or 5 times a year
