Here is how I installed a Kijaro Versa Shade as an awning
on my 17' Casita
Travel Trailer for less than $120. Here is a link to the Kijaro Versa Shade http://kijaro.com/products/shade/versa-shade/
Notice the picture of all the materials and tools needed. A Kijaro Versa Shade, four PVC Suction Hooks - two on top of the Travel Trailer (TT) and two for pole supports at the bottom of the TT, an 8' stick of 3/4¨ CPVC pipe cut into two pieces that fit into the Kiljaro bag, add a 3/4¨ CPVC Coupling, then cut a small piece of 3/4" CPVC pipe into a length to level the awning
. The only tool needed was a PVC pipe cutter. Paint
the CPVC pipe black for a nicely matching pole.
Kijaro also provides four stakes and two ropes to anchor the Versa Shade on windy days. I may add two small stainless steel clamps to the Kijaro poles to support the CPVC pole extension. Right now, the CPVC is held by the velcro attached to the Kijaro poles.
It fits nicely on a 17' Casita
using the 11' side. It would probably fit nicely on a smaller FGRV using the 7' side. I will be testing it out while camping this weekend. The whole awning
with my added parts fits nicely into Kijaro's 26¨x 6¨ x 6¨ bag (included) that weighs only 10lbs and is easily stowed inside a TT compartment!
