We are looking for one with stripes and scallops.

If you want a rope & pole type you can get one made to whatever size by Marti's Awnings. We tried one from another supplier but didn't like it and then bought a bag awning.

We got ours from Marti's as well. Good turnaround, reasonable cost for a quality product. Got the awning poles and rope tighteners through her as well, they do the job well.

Thanks for the tips.
Our next project is to paint the white of our 1973 Boler.
It has a green lower half as well as interior.
Does anyone have a paint code for the white for any marine enamel that would be available at Home Depot, Benjamine Moore, etc.?
For that matter........can you tint marine enamel???????

Vintage awnings by Kristi. I talked to her but didn't get one only because I didn't like the fabrics she has currently. Very reasonable prices though.

Here's a pic of the awning that Marti made for us. Like has been said above. She does quality work at a reasonable price.
Her web site is at: Marti's Vintage Trailer Awnings

Connsidering a 6 ft awning for 13 scamp from shade maker. They only shop the rail in 2 sections are there any negatives to this or should we look for a couple. That sells and ships one piece,? Ron

I bought my awning rail from Vintage Trailer Supply because they ship it in a piece of PVC pipe so it won't get damaged. Is there a RV place near you that you could buy it from. Note that any Shademaker bag awning under 8 foot in length on the rail is the cheaper model that has the twist lock poles. That is what we have on our Uhaul 13. It's OK, but not as good as the Supreme model. While you're ordering get the optional center rafter, a spring loaded pole that you insert after the awning is out. You'll have to ask other Scamp owners how far above the door to install the rail for door clearance. Wendy (Campytime) put one on her Scamp. We have had the problem of water getting in the bag when the awning is rolled in, Wendy has too, so I don't leave it on the trailer.

Edit; just saw this is a new post by Ron on an old thread. Gage who posted before Ron is no longer with us, as in passed away. We were fortunate to have met him.
