Bag Awning: Which Brand is Best for the $

We've just purchase a new 13' Scamp and want a bag awning that will take the zippered screen room attachment. There seem to be several main brands including Dometic, Argonaut & Shademaker which vary widely in cost. Can anyone tell us which is best for the money? Thanks!

With the Scamp 13 you probably are limited to a 7' awning rail, same as we have on our Uhaul. Have heard of some installing an 8' rail and let the ends hang off. We bought a Shademaker 7' Classic, which protrudes 7' out from the rail and has the twist to lock poles. The Supreme model has better sliding poles and rafters, but is available in a minimum width of 8'. But wait, we now find the supreme IS available 7' wide for about an extra $25, but only protrudes 6' out. That is what we would have bought if we knew it was available. There was another recent discussion about this subject of installing an awning on a Scamp 13, original Poster Campytime. May be some useful info there. If you go with a Shademaker I suggest buying the optional center rafter.
Edit; don't know if Shademaker has the screen side panels, we use a separate screen room.

I've had 3 Shademaker awnings over the years on a truck camper and 2 13" Scamps.
I was very satisfied with them.

Anyone using the Dometic A&E bag awning? An 8 footer is only $149 on fleabay and Amazon. Too good to be true?
