Shade pro Vista shade

For those *Berk owners* with a early 2014 or older that have the awning attached to the side of the motorhome (not the slide out like the new ones) and are using the shade pro Vista shade, what length did you get and also what length drop are you using? I was thinking of ordering the 17 foot length with either the 8 foot drop or 10 foot drop. Wasn't sure if I needed the extra two feet on the drop.

Thank you

Jason

Here is the 10 Ft. drop shade.
Ours is an RB so can't comment on the length.

Thank you!

I believe the lengths are the same on our units but I could be wrong. I think they're 16 or 18 but I'm not sure and at work so I can't measure it.

Jason, I have a '14 390fl and have the 17' with 10' drop. This is a great product. Especially since our slides take up so much of the awnings overhead coverage.

So after measuring, my awning roller is 14 feet. So when ordering the vista shade. Have to go with the 13 foot one.

I was thinking about installing shade pro on my berk. but I went against it. there has been a few times when we was camping and my wife and I was down on the stream prospecting for gold and a storm came up, by the time we got back to MH the awning was retracted. I have it on auto retract. so I just put up a tent and use what shade we do get from the awning .

I also leave the autoretract on when I'm gone, but if there is any possibility of strong winds or storms, I zip off the bottom piece before I leave. Very easy process.

Is that awning made by Carefree? We have a Carefree awning on our 5th wheel and purchased a shade from the manufacturer to preclude any interface issues. We like it very much and is easy to install and remove. Wish I had a picture but just thought I'd comment.
