dts3204, I don't believe there is a commercial awning available for the rear of the A-Frame, but it's a nice idea! I recall seeing a home-made version somewhere out there in GoogleLand. Maybe a forum member knows of one(?) The subject of the Dometic awning has been discussed at length in this forum. Some folks love it, and some opt for an EZ-up to provide extra covered space. (For simplicity and affordability, so far, my family has just put up our tent and old awning when we've camped longer than a weekend.)

I have seen a standard Pop Up awning attached to the back of Aliner. Basically its just a Carefree of Colorado attached to the back roof edge top via a slide on attachment thingy.
Was thinking of doing this myself .. but have opted for purchasing a Aframe Screen room.

I am getting dis-enchanted with my screen room because the Velcro on the A-Frame has pealed off for the second time. The stuff gets brittle in the sun and comes off, leaving the adhesive behind to discolor the walls. I will either need to cover my camper to protect the Velcro from the sun or stop forget the screen room.

Might try something like this but will have to make it mount higher somehow.

On I saw was mounted above the window and was a modified VW Van Awning. Haven't measured the height to the back window but am becoming more and more interested in doing that. But 1st must do my first run in it this week, to see if I forget anything and what more has to be learned.
