FINALLY.!!! Window Awnings..!!

The last few days here in Middle TN have been over 100 degrees.!! Got me to thinking how much cooler the MH would be with window awnings installed. Had my awnings for a while laying in the garage. Got up early this morning to take advantage of the cooler temps. My 5 ton army truck and lowboy made a perfect work scaffold. My DW helped a lot and took a few pics as well. Can't wait to try them out in the real (HOT!) world..!!

They really make a difference, and they look pretty good on your rig too.

Nice job. I'm curious where you bought the window awnings and how you measured?
Did you exceed the window frame by so many inches or what?

Nice option to add in the sunny areas like here in Arizona it gets a little hot in the sun.

Thanks guys for the compliments. I ordered these from Camping World. Window awnings come in standard, stock lengths or can be ordered in custom lengths (more expensive). These are Dometic brand. Pretty sure Dometic's website has instructions for measuring. I was lucky they had a stock size to cover two windows on my big slide, 11 1/2 feet, which was not listed in CW's book. I talked to Dometic directly to get the proper part # to give to CW. We love 'em, wished I'd done it sooner....!!
