I remember (only a little) from our TT days that to change the amount of shade given by a major amount you'd almost have to drop it so low you have to duck going in/out. That was too much a pain and head buster that we wouldn't mess with it. I find just moving were we sit to be easier...or sit inside if it's that bad.
Also have end sunscreens we install when needed.

We had it out last weekend after the mod and the difference was significant. Of course the time of day has a lot to do with it

The weather has been great. Cool evenings, warm days and the trees are starting to show their fall color. I'm sure you'll enjoy visiting. Let us know if there's anything you need or have a question about. Cheers!

The free offer was offered for a while. I checked into it and now you have to buy them. Not a very big expense.
