Would suggest some support on the awning tube before putting in sunscreens due to the added weight and wind affects on the arms with the added wind resistance and tying down the sunscreen. JMO

I didn't notice a weight issue. The top piece rolls up with awning (unzip) the bottom 6 foot piece. I used 3 bungee cords to stake it to the ground. Wind was not a problem. The arms on the Berkshires are pretty substantial. Craig
