Diane posted this in response to my question to her about installing a bag awning
on our Uhaul
. We figured 7' would be the maximum length to use because of the roof curve. I later remembered that when I installed one on a popup camper that there are ball sockets that the end rafters hook into. Now that's easy to do with a flat vertical sided trailer, but I can't see how to make them work on our Uhaul
as the awning
has to be mounted far enough up the roof so to clear the door. A rollout awning would be nice, but the shortest that we can find is 8' and that is too long unless it sticks out in midair on the ends. Also I'm not sure if that can be mounted so as to work properly. I think we're going to have to go with a rope & pole awning, and probably a custom made one at that. Anyone had any success with this?
