Camped in the KY horse park last August. Early one morning a severe
thunder storm rolled thru. MY awning was rolled up!!!
After the storm we walked around the CG and saw many of those little
4 leg shelters you can buy at Sams club and other places that had
collapsed due to rain water collecting on top. They look like they should
shed water but they don't. Lots of others shelters were flipped over with
various amounts of damage.
Also saw a nice motor coach with the awning flipped right over the roof.
Pretty sure that one was a total loss for the awning.
Both awning arms were bent in lots of places they should have been straight.
I've had to get up in the middle of the night to close my awning more times
than I want to remember..... wife says next trailer will
have electric awning.
