We are enjoying our new 2013 Coachmen Mirada 35bh.. This is our first Coach but already we've taken it on several traips since December.
When we did our walk-through, the salesmen gave us a Big-Fat warning about the awning. He made it sound like if the wind was anything more than a puff, it would break.
So far we haven't really needed the shade cause even in Texas, it's not that warm yet! But the hot days are coming and we are booked for a week in Myrtle Beach, SC in August, so I know we'll want to use that awning.
Question--just how fragile is that thing anyway? If I tie the two outside corners down, that should stabilize it pretty well... Can those of you with experience give me an idea of what wind or gust-speed the awning can survive without damage? Ours is an electric one, if that matters, and 12' long.
