It seems that the only people who don't recommend slide awnings are those who don't have them. And if you don't have them, can you really provide an informed opinion?

It was joke, lighten up.

I found out about them online before I had even decided on which TT to get, and had them put on before I picked it up. The $500 -$700 is cheap compared to the cost of replacing seals should you accidentally close the slide out with a branch on top. With my disabilities, climbing up to clean them isn't an option either. Didn't think about the heat benefits. Love this site! I learn something new every day!
