I also like the Bus Depot awning. It's too bad that the X pieces are fiberglass because aircraft aluminum is much nicer to work with and lasts forever. Tentpole Technologies in Vancouver, WA can probably help me out with aluminum poles. Hmmmmm

I like that awning & the Bus Depot one also. I have no problem if awning safely fails in high winds. Would rather have suction cups pull loose or velcro straps fail than see awning or camper damaged.

Currently we re-purposed our 10x10 pop up awning, wife and I can set it up and walk it right over one side of our 13 ft Scamp. Clears both ends by a little bit. But the thing is huge (big square bag with wheels) and heavy (steel poles). Takes up half the couch when transporting. Much more in the way if not in use such as overnight when traveling.

Thanks for the good ideas and links.
