Awning question

It seems to me that somewhere in my travels on this forum someone mentioned that they have a cure for the short awning issues of the Berkshires. With the awning coming out over the slide, the area of shade or cover is pretty small. I thought I read somewhere here that someone had come up with an idea or a way to alleviate the problem.

its not just fr
our tuscany is the same way......flat and almost useless.
newer ones had the awning attached to the outer wall of the slide, which moved it out and allowed for angle changing

Hmmm, ours is the same way but how about adding another awning to the slide so you have an awning under an awning?

We haven't found it to be all that much of a problem as the slide is right about head height when in a lawn chair and we put our drink tables under it and arrange the chairs in front of the slide.

Taxman,
Haven't found not being able to adjust the awning to be a problem as we usually try to get shaded sites. But it does render the awning over the slide fairly useless.

Agree as we have the same problem. They are useless indeed.
