Not sure because I haven't seen it... Is it a roll-out like the big guys use? Not even sure if that's what they call them, but I had one on an old trailer I owned many years ago.

This is the awning on my Escape in the half open position, which it what I use if I'm expecting wind.
Easy open, easy close, and no ropes to trip over. Posts can be removed from the trailer and stood straight up.

Vintage Trailer Awnings Tips

These are a cool awning that work with the rail I described. Link to their selection of color swatches already sent to wife. Telling her is one thing sending it email I know she will see it.

The white wall and moonie look in those pictures is pretty cool. Get your bolt measurements (might be 5 bolts on 4.5 inch but check)

Then give this page a look Wheel Only 13 Inch Tires and Wheels | etrailer.com

Especially this item Americana Conventional Steel Wheel with Offset - 13" x 4-1/2" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - Black Americana Tires and Wheels AM20214 because it does take the moon hub caps according to the reviews BUT it is offset and that offset has to match up with what works on your axle and your wheel well.

You could always give E trailer a call they have a reputation of being good to deal with. Find out the offset then contact a local tire store to see if they would fit.

Good hunting!

You can paint on white walls. Google "white wall tire paint" for several sources of paint. Also see YouTube for many videos on how to paint your tires.

I second Teri's recommendation for an awning - Martie's Awnings which the website that the Trailer Awning Tips link takes you is indeed the go to place.

Martie has done lots of awnings for vintage trailers owners here in the Pacific North West. She is the go to awning lady for sure if your wanting a well made awning with a cute factor!
