That looks like a solid and effective setup, Rick. Do you know how much it all weighs, including the supporting structure?

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Rick,
very good and provides even more shade than normal.
Just another example proving the old adage "where there's a will, there's a way".
Thanks for sharing the fruits of your labor.
Kurt & Ann K.

I'm wondering the same thing.

Thanks for the compliments. It was not a real easy task but it does work real nice. As for the weight I don't know the totals but the awning alone weighed 70#. I'll let you guys figure out the weight from the sizes of the materials. The 2 uprights are 2x2x1/8x about 78" there is about 12 feet of 2x2x1/8 angle iron braces, the upper tube (running the length of the awning is 2x6x1/8x about 14 feet aluminum (wow, a 21 foot piece was $220), probably 5 pounds of stainless steel bolts. It is a 12'x8' awning.

To me, that's like waving a red flag in front of a bull! By my calculation, the whole setup is about 81 kg, or 179 lb, as described in this spreadsheet:

That's one impressive chunk of aluminum!

Thanks for the info, Rick.

Brian,
Sorry about that Brian. Those individual weights look about right, as I recall assembling the parts. My F-150 gets 13-14 MPG towing it and we don't carry much water so the 179# doesn't bother me. Thanks for running those numbers.
Rick

Holy Cow... Thats a heck of an awning. Looks like it would withstand the "Third World War"... Although it almost seems to overpower the trailer, I bet it is really nice during the hot "Dog Days of Summer"...

How long is the whole trailer now? Did you extent both front & back?
