I do understand that not everyone has this option, that is why I state different ways of camping for different people. That's why it is so enjoyable to camp and meet people with different ideas.

This is my first electric awning and I'm already on my second motor, it was replaced last year mid season. Acts like it might, maybe, last the rest of this season. I retract it every time I leave the site for up to 6 weeks a year. They don't last.

The next time I buy a new trailer I will order it just to get a manual awning.
Other than that I'm happy with they come.

My previous fifth wheel had an awning that came down at almost a 45 degree angle. I could get away with just straps on that awning because the straps were virtually inline with the awning and I could lock the arms. On my Georgetown, the awning is 11' in the air and almost straight out! Even with pulling the awning all the way down, it's still taller than I can reach.
