Half patio umbrella - alternative to an awning?

While in Ikea yesterday I noticed they had a very cool half patio Umbrella that might work well at the rear of a trailer to expand your cover while BQ'ing in the rain. Pretty cheap - $29.99 They also had a half stand you can purchase to go with it.

That one isn't very big, but I've seen much larger ones- check Amazon for half-umbrella. That would be a good idea.
