7' Dometic Cabana Awning for the Burrita

Here are pics of my new lanai, the 7' Dometic Cabana Awning. My square footage is now doubled. Please note I forgot to take tent stakes and resorted to holding it down with rocks.

Nice, very nice. Any chance you can take a picture from the doorway of the trailer to the interior of the lanai.

I know I'm asking a lot, but I love pics!

No problem, Donna. I'll be at Crested Butte this week and will be using it again. I'll get some inside shots.

Yes, Eddie, this is like the one on Ebay. I bought the 10' model at the good Ebay price and it was WAY too big. Too bad for me the seller didn't offer a return policy. So, I found the 7' model from a different source and it fits great. There are a couple of differences between the two. The 7' model has the capability of zipping into its own bag if you wish to leave it on the trailer while driving down the road. The one from Ebay doesn't.

Cabana Awning

Do you have the 10' cabana awning that you first ordered? Is it for sale?

Yes, I still have it. I hung it for a week or so under my backyard pergola and there are a few leaf stains on it. It was also rained on. However, it still looks new compared to how the 7' awning looks after being used in the mountains :-) I'll sell it for $150 including shipping.

Here are some inside shots of the Cabana room - now known as my Lanai. This room has more than doubled my square footage and I love it.

I can absolutely see why you like it. Thanks for sharing the pics. Not everyone camps in a relatively bug free area like I do, I think this will be a solution for those who hate flying bugs!

Thanks, Gail Anne. Here is the link that describes the rear storage saddle bags. Panniers for the Burro - that's Saddlebags for you Gringos...

Do you think the larger one would be a good fit for my 17' burro?
I would love to get something like your photos!!!
Does it require an awning bar or something to affix it to the exterior?
(Thanks for sending me the pannier link!)

Sorry, Gail Anne. Ron Walker is now the proud owner of the bigger cabana.
