PS. you can use any awning
that fits in the track. We only use the original tent for rallies to show off. A lot of trouble to put up but it is cute. Looks like a circus tent
: U should see the new Awnings on the new Armadillo's being built here in BC they are about 3' wide and spread out to about 9' at the front real neat looking awnings plus real easy to put out and take in.
You are not supposed to heat a trailer using the propane Burners for safety reasons that is what a furnace
is for. But when cooking one cannot help it and in such tight confines I would think the little green propane cans and cook stove on a Picnic table with a piece of plywood underneath so one does not damage the table would be the way to go, sit outside and enjoy the fine day/weather. I Might have a picture somewhere in my camera which I have not downloaded into my computer yet.
They also come with a underside drawer that is made of aluminium work the larger one can hold quite a bit of stuff and when in no water can get into it, as the trailers drop in size the drawer also drops in size but smart idea for extra storage space especially if you live year round in it as you can store winter clothing there or vice versa.
Any trailer built in 1969 or older came with Propane lights
, 4burner stove top with Oven, most of those old trailers did not have a furnace
and I had a trailer at 3300' level and the dog and I would often go up and shovel snow off the snow roof I built over it when it got as deep as 4'. All dogs love snow even if snow is 6' deep he used to wander around under the snow and stick his head up to grab some air and away he would go again. I had to snow shoe into the trailer and if early enough he walked on top about 1/2 mile to the truck. Thank goodness for those lights
and the stove and 2 full propane bottles or we could not of come up in the winter months, I threw the safety item out the window.
