I looked at that and it says that you can not retract the awning with the cover in place. It would be pretty difficult without a carrying a ladder to re-install the awning after opening it.

I made hinged covers for just the ends that work great for keeping the water out of the ends of the awning.

Hold up great, put them on before heading to Goshen rally and had made provisions to tie them down, but after traveling 3500 miles to the rally and beyond, they never flopped any. Towed thru some horrendous downpours on the way home on I40 and when we stopped for the night, I deployed the awning to see if it had taken on water and it hadn't. Quite satisfied with them.

Nope, just lazy and cheap. Don't/didn't want to have to get a ladder out to put full length covers on that don't protect the end when driving into a rain.
