And it's not anymore fragile than the Catalina, in fact, in my humble opinion it's less fragile as it's much easier to use. You don't have to screw around with it, just crank it in and out.
Mine has been on my Scamp
for 13 full years and used contantly. I rarely camp without deploying the awning
. I love the feel of an extra room and sitting out in the rain/dew without getting wet, chilling with a cup of coffee.
And Yes Floyd it's a Horizon but it's the same thing as the Fiamma except different fabric. In fact, my fabric is heavier guage than the Fiamma....that's it.
Again IMHO it's well worth the extra cost.
