SUV Awning for Casita?

Hi all! I’ve always wanted an awning on my Casita and started looking around for hack ideas to add some shade. I saw this video on YouTube explaining how this Casita owner used a KingCamp SUV awning with his Casita. Has anyone has tried this or something similar? I looked up KingCamp awnings on Amazon to see reviews and there are none, which makes me suspicious.

Curious about your experience with this or other awning hacks. (Note: I want to carry something small that doesn’t take up too much space so an ez-up isn’t ideal.)

Welcome to the forum. One common solution to your need is a so=called bag awning. Take a look at these.

And good luck with your project.
My first two fiberglass trailers were early Casitas sans awnings and I never thought I'd want one. Now I wouldn't do without.

Thanks, Walt! I appreciate it and will investigate that. The Casita is coming to a festival with me and an awning will be great.

This is my second post in here—the first was advice on a purchase about 5 years ago. I love my Casita and am glad you are here for help. ❤️

And there are several KingCamp awnings on this page, some with quite a few reviews.

Shady Boy is my favorite attached awning. Reasonable cost, compact size, light weight, mechanically simple, wind resistant, sheds water, and self-storing (nothing laying around inside the trailer). I like how you can remove the fabric and poles for long-term storage, so you don't have to worry about mildew inside the case.

For now we use our First-Up. But when the kids are grown and we do longer trips, I plan to install a Shady Boy.
