Trailer: Scamp 16 ft
Posts: 34
I have a 16 foot scamp that has the dometic catalina awning. The awning is in an aluminum case that is suspended about 1/2" away from the scamp body via three arms. The annoying part is when it rains the awning works perfect for the stuff under it except for items next to the scamp. Because of that 1/2" gap rain that hits the roof runs right down the outside of the trailer between the awning and trailer then soaks any items under the awning that are next to the trailer.

Has anyone filled that gap so rain water does not run down?

I have thought about switching to a bag awning, but would much prefer to use this awning since aside from this issue I love the awning.

Any thoughts.

Many folks use foam plastic swimming noodles or pipe insulation and stuff it in the gap.

I believe it was Joy A, that filled the gap with clear tubing and caulk... not silicone caulk obviously.
