I'd like to ask another question about awnings. I have an awning that I want to purchase and the BAG is 7'4" and my Awning rail is 7'. ie. the awning rail is shorter then the awning bag. The bag would hang out 2" on each side. Who out there has this problem as well, and has it been an issue for you when traveling? Did it tear at the entry point into the rail?

Thanks,
Mike

Mike, thats EGGactly as mine is. I positioned the bag so the overhang is equal on both ends of the rail and drilled a small hole the higher lip of the rail (do this on both front n back ends) and screw in an appropriate sized (preferably stainless) screw after the bag is inserted in the track This is tightened just enough to hold the bag in place and should/might cut a small hole through the fabric of the bag and into the small plastic rod embedded in the bag. This may sound confusing, but it works for me...

And have you had any problems with it ripping?

The bag on my Burro hangs out about 2" on each side. It's been ok since 1981 I guess.

Angry

IS THIS A LOADED QUESTION ???
Mine sticks out a little longer than 2 inches, maybe as much as 3 and 1/2 each end and NO we have never had any issues with bag ripping.

OK, I'm back!

I have finally decided on an awning. Thanks to everyone who helped with feedback.

I have decided on the (drum roll please) http://www.interwestsports.com/bag%20awnings.html

The 7'x7' Classic, The manufacture said they would make a custom black and Grey one for me so it matches my Boler.

It also comes with an opional screen room, or add-a-room. which I have not ordered. (Yet)

$198 out the door
Should hang out of my awning rail about 1-2 inches on each side.

Mike
