I'm not a fan of slide toppers, and I agree that my awning is almost useless with that big slide under it.

If that awning had been moved toward the front of the trailer just two inches (there is room...I checked), that awning would be so much more usable as I would be able to open the entrance door all the way without it interfering with the awning. is what it is...

But the ease of opening and closing the electric awnings, despite the wimpiness of them, is priceless!

I AGREE... so nice to just push a button. Came in VERY HANDY last summer when we had a tire going flat.... was able to put the awning out so the DH was in the shade while changing the tire.

I love that our awning covers both the dining area window and the bedroom window. Sometimes it is nice to just leave the windows open and not run the air. The windows on the back side are the pop outs. If it is not raining hard or blowing, we can leave them open. But we don't have a slide to take up most of the awning.
