Cool Awnings

Murray here
Looking for awning ideas for a 13' Ventura.
The trailer is not straight. There is a bend about half way back.
With this a straight awning will not contact the trailer along the way.
Question? Forget about an attached awning or is there a solution?

Thanks for the replies

Bag Awning should work. I installed one on my Boler 13 and even though the awning rail was a bit longer then the flattest, straight surface of the Boler I just had the rail stick out about 4 inches in the front and back. The rail, I attached it every 6 inches with 3/16 pop rivets and on each end I put in a 1/4 Bolt with a large 2 inch fender washer inside and a cap not to finish it off. Works fine, but as with BAG AWNINGS, one get pretty wet when folding it up in the rain. My Boler had a Carefree of Colorado 6 foot awning and the new one was a 7 foot Dometic.

Thanks Gerry
I'll get something worked out.
When the wife wants to come, I better figure it out.

Shady Boy is another option.

I imagine this issue could be resolved with the installation of a piece of insulation foam (pink/blue) board from Lowe's or Home Depot and then caulk it in place to hold it between the awning case and the shell. This mounting issue never bothered us so we didn't even consider it a problem. It might be a solution for you too.

Highly recommend the Shady Boy!

Saw your recommendation for Shady Boy. We have a Scamp 16 that could use a new awning. Can you tell me roughly what you paid for yours?

Awning

Just got a price from Shady Boy Awnings.
$335:00 cdn
They only make one size. 10' wide x 6' projection.
Not the heaviest duty thing I've ever seen but tuck it away when the wind comes up.
I think it works for me.
the price seems good too.
Go and Enjoy

Iíve had 3 XL awnings, the XL has square post and is more heavy duty.
And there great to work with, should it need repairs.
