Wow!
That's quite a difference...is it available in that pretty Egg "Yolk" color?
Can you post a link?

I may be the guinea pig here and get one- that yellow color is just calling out to me-

I also think the price is pretty steep for what you are getting. You may want to look around a little more at your options.

I had an awning made for $190 (7x8) including delivery. I just picked the Sunbrella color I that wanted and specified the trim (fringed scalloped edge, etc). Drawback - It's not a bag awning, its rope & pole style. BUT, you could get a bright yellow one if you wanted !! The material colors/patterns are only limited to whatever Sunbrella makes (and they have a LOT of variety).

Pam, where did you buy it?

Thank you, Norm

How does it attach to your camper? Do you need an awning rail to install?

Rope/pole or bag awnings, all require a rail. They're not very difficult to install. As opposed to the bimini awning, there are more loose parts to a pole/rope awning.

Jim,
I like the look of the bimini. We have the original Dometic box awning. Although I've learned how to open and close the Dometic, it can still be a bit tempormental.

The biggest benefit to an awning is the shelter that lets us keep the curb side window and door open during a hot, humid summer rain. The bimini would still allow leaving the window and door open at a fraction of the weight.

Can the little piece of trim be added so I can use this type of awning?
