Very nice! If you find that the suction cups arent holding up to windy conditions, you can add an awning rail to the trailer too

VERY NICE! I would love to see detailed photos of the mounting with suction cups. Also - Would you sew some up if I were to provide the materials and patterns?

I would consider selling them myself on my Etsy shop (KarenCrafted) if people were interested, but prefer to work without pattens, just measurements. I would do a custom order, with shape, color/print requests.

I used extra large suction cups with hooks I found on Amazon. I made corresponding grommet attachments along the camper end, and one on each corner of the other end for the poles, (Coleman adjustables, also found on Amazon).

Very creative and very pretty!

Sunbrella has a yellow stripe fabric I am leaning towards (Beaufort Yellow/White 6 Bar 5702-0000 https://www.sunbrella.com/en-us/fabr...ow-White-6-Bar)

Your pictures may have sealed it for me. Looks great.

many thanks for sharing this! the suction cup idea is just what i'm looking for, i have an awning rail on my ventura, and will be making an awning with velcro around the edges for a screen room. i was trying to figure out how to attach the screen room sides to the trailer, suction cups will work great i think!
