Awning

I recently purchased a2005 16 foot scamp that does not have an awning. Any suggestions about purchasing and installing beside the scamp manufacturer?

Hi Chuck to FiberglassRV. We're glad you're here

I installed the same awning Casita has, not cheap, but worth every penny to me.

Are you interested in an awning that can use a screen enclosure? Would a bag awning (on awning rail) appeal to you?

awning

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. I am new to this, so bear with me. I have a round rod that runs where an awning would attach to the trailer. It appears that maybe an awning attached to this rod in the past. If that type of awning is a "bag" awning, that is probably what I need. Do you know how I can determine if that is what the rod is for?

Thanks,

Chuck

If the rod is open on one side then yes you can instal a bagged one or have a custom one made up

The rod has two caps, one on each side. The caps appear to be glued on.

Works well and minimum cost. Jim

The awning rail is a solid metal pipe, how would I insert a sewn rubber insert?

I did not realize that the rail was a solid metal pipe, but I am sure that for a very small cost, your rv dealer would have a awning rail with a slit in it and then you could insert the tarp/rubber insert in it. I used fishing line with a large needle to sew the insert onto the tarp
I could download some pics if it would be of any help.

Awining

It was very windy this particular day, so I held it down from the hitch as well as the rear bumper.
I did not take pics of the actual sewing but I think you may get the idea.
