Nina, your Scamp is absolutely adorable inside and out! I love what you have done with the interior. Did you do the sewing and decorating yourself? Precious. And... I love the little awning too. We ordered our Casita without decals so that we can put our own on or have some custom painting done on the outside. We aren't sure which way to go yet - we're waiting until the spring or summer to do it and eventually, I want to get awnings too.

Thanks for sharing your pics!

Gina, I thought about using a tension strap on mine that hooked underneath the belly band. That wouldn't work on your Burro, but you might be able to rig something that could be secured to the lower part of the window frame.

This is a great idea! What are your updates on the project? Has anyone ever used a "Shadyboy" awning?

Thanks Nina for posting the detailed photos of your awning's construction. It's a very elegant design, and you've done a great job of executing your vision. They're a perfect match for your sweet trailer!

I know this thread is almost a year old, but I am very interested to do much the same thing to my 07 Casita. While in Colorado last year it sprinkled so I left the window open. Did not rain in but the water dripped into the open window because of the curve at the roof. So I am considering adding a rain gutter on the side windows and was wondering how you were attaching the rods. I am thinking of riveting and glueing.

Yeah, it looks simple and cool! I love the way it was installed. One of the advantage of having an awning is that it looks great. The combination of the right color pattern and awning design can add a particular elegance to your space, while also providing a practical purpose.

Next time the wife is away and you get these ideas, bring them north and let's put them on my Egg Camper, I like the idea. Keep us posted as you massage the awning into a final product.
