Tony, I see the quandary there. Your forward door looks to be covered when the awning is extended, but the rear door isn't.

My trailer is exact opposite, with the rear door covered over with an extended awning, but the forward (bedroom) door isn't. But this also allows for the awning arms to be positioned, where both doors will open all the way up flat against the trailer side. Hmmm, it is different for sure.

I've just ordered a chicken and an egg from Amazon.... I will keep you posted.

I question as to whether or not the 2x sticky tape will hold long term. It'll do fine to get your positioning down and see if that's really what you want to do I guess.

Wmtire, you're right your doors can open up all the way with awning extended. Neither of my two doors can stay latched open with the awning extended. I don't mind that one door isn't covered but I'm disappointed with not being able to keep doors open like your TT. both of my doors hit the awning arms before they can reach the plastic door catch.
