Awning needed for 78 Trillium 4500

We are looking for an awning for our 1978 Trillium 4500. Any leads on this? Thanks so much.

A little more info would probably help in your search. Are you looking for an encased telescoping roll-up awning, like the Fiamma ones, or a bag awning, or a rope & pole awning?

Another alternative that members of this forum use and like is the Shady Boy awning. You can read opinions by searching threads on this forum.

Good links to check out here! Thank you! The first one looks a bit too complicated for our needs. The second two look promising. We will be calling about these.

Thanks John.......we will also check out the Shady Boy awning. This one does not looks like it attaches to the rail, however. Concerned about the gap that would leave........

Something like this might also work and have better wind resistance and water-shedding properties than a rope-and-pole. Very lightweight, but I don't know about durability. You could probably sew awning rope tape on one side to attach directly to your awning rail. The size (11.5'x8') seems perfect for your trailer.

I also like the Shady Boy, but it's more for shade than rain, due to the gap.

Here's another source for rope-and-pole awnings:

Thank you for the info Jon (in AZ)! I really like the Marti awning!! This may be the ticket. I also found this, and wonder how they might compare in quality and for our Trillium.

I really appreciate everyone's input. So much good info.
