Where can I get an awning like Danny and Dawn's

Can anyone recommend an awning similar to Danny and Dawn's in the attached photo? I'd prefer a simple version that can fold up for storage and perhaps slide into an unobtrusive track attached to a 13 ft trailer. It doesn't have to be made with gold thread, just reasonably durable. I have seen several on the web, but reviews are scarce and I'd prefer to buy only one. Do you have one you like?
Many Thanks, john

I also love the looks of this Scamp with its awning and stripe. Any info would be great, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was custom made.

I have seen several of Marti's awnings and they are beautiful. I don't think you would be disappointed.

Marti's is a real popular supplier of awnings to the vintage trailer folks! Large following and fan base.

We made window awnings ourselves following instructions from another Escape owner.
Used tracks and edge cord from Sailrite and our own fabric. Not difficult...especially if you have a heavy duty sewing machine.

Below are the pictures from their trailer which we used as a model in making ours.

The 3rd photo down is one from our trailer...a bit closer to see the details of the awning we made (for Shawn KK)

Here's another awning by Marti. She also does sides for it if you like. This is my second awning by her.

I love the look of these vintage-style awnings. For those of you who have them, do they do a good job of keeping the rain off and holding up to a bit of wind?

Our Trillium awning is basically the same as the one shown in the opening post. Ours is green and cream stripes though. We didn't like the way it sagged, and loathed the way it held a puddle of water after a sprinkle of rain. It didn't seem to matter how hard we tried we couldn't get it to stay taut enough to shed rain.

We gave up and bought a free standing canopy.

As you can see, there is a solution for every thing.
