I made an awning and am playing with it....Im laying it up on the flat space on my roof, used 2 heavy 3/4" galvanized conduit but need a better sleeve to join the pipes....might have to add a super suctioncup in the middle to support it better. I would prefer not haveing a track to mess up my ParkLiner's lines.

Those Bus Depot suction cups are neat for use on metal van roofs, but I found out that they don't work so well on fiberglas, especially if it has even the slightes amount of textire.

Oztents

Oztents set up super fast and have an extension to mate up to a trailer or to tie two Oztents together. They are from down under where outback camping is serious business.

Spoiler Alert: Be sitting down when you ask the prices. $$$$$

Costco has these and you can use them at home too. On line they are 32.00 but in store they are 23.00 , think I will pick up 2 at this price. I can make a awning out of these but just for the sun. They are like 11 ft 10 inches

Look at the shape of this unique design...from KMart online. I think the design is great for a whole lot of reasons. It solves some of my problems, like more cover for a long picnic table area and has the ablity to shed rain!!!!!!!!! Way to go KMart, who by the way has always had great camping supplies at a good price. They also have a smaller one 8ft x 8ft at half the price.

This is what we use --- a Coleman First Up. It includes four zippered screen walls and the solid fabric privacy/wind block panel shown here. I think we paid $100 for it a WalMart.

As much as I love the look of a vintage awning attached to the trailer, this turns out to be a versatile, effective way to create an outdoor living space.

The trailer, BTW, is a rebuilt '65 Serro Scotty. We've had alot of fun with it - but are looking forward to using our currently in progress Scamp.

Oh yeah --- Christmas 2011, Anastasia State Park, Florida.

What I'd like is a canopy that I could set up at the backdoor- without blocking the door from opening. Most of the time the online descriptions do not include how low the side comes and most popups block the door (I've done that.)

Bobbie, I hear you, I know it's more to carry but Bed Risers work good on any of the first up like shelters to set the legs on and raise the height. Done that before. But hate to carry more junk. It works, and you can take the ties from the corners and stake them in case of storm.

We love our Coleman First Up, fits right over the Scamp 13 but....

http://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f56/parkliner-awning-on-a-lighter-note-58473-new-post.html

Am willing to NOT have an 80# canopy on my couch if this dining fly works out. Would still take Coleman for tent camping or if camping with the kids and grand kids, makes a great add-a-room for those multi family camping trips.

So headed for Costco! Those sun shades would be perfect for our deck on the west side of the house.

I might try that with the Bed Risers. The only thing is making the trailer more vulnerable to wind.

Although I keep looking at alternatives to the popup canopy, anyway, since it is so dagnabit hard to set up when alone.

Bobby, I set mine up alone all the time. There is a trick to it, I have posted the trick before can't remember where but here goes:
For the single person you need a hammer and one peg. Get the thing out and stake one leg. Then pull it at opposite corners untill it's all pulled out. Then while the legs are still down, put the top on and click the top up, on each corner first. This is entirely backwords from the directions on these things but it works so much better!!!
Then drop the legs a little at a time going from one to the next until they are up.
Easy pesie, the single person's way.
And on the bed risers, just stake the Ropes on the corners of the shelter. Both of mine have ropes, mine are made by Quest. Got them years ago at Dick's Sporting Goods. I am sure you can come up with a way to make it work for you.
