Not surprised since there is no slide on the curbside as is the case with the 27RLWS, where the 17' awning goes up to the slide.

Wmoses, if you have your trailer stored at home, maybe you could get a measurement from the hinge side of the door to the front awning arm?

bkjones, have a look at the picture link in Wmoses' signature. They don't have a picnic table there but it may give you a better idea of the scale. Don't be rushed into making a choice you'll regret later!

Actually the trailer is about 5 miles away at a storage lot. If I remember net time I am there (should be sometime this weekend) I will get the dimension. Meanwhile here is another photo. For a dimensional reference the stair is about 2' wide and the mat is 9' x 12'.



I agree 1000% about not rushing into a decision. I shopped long and hard and came up with this trailer that had everything we need and in a lighter package, and it is great value for money. I understand where the OP is coming from but there ain't no way in heck I'd let this picnic under awning issue be a show stopper. But that is just me.

No problem. I will have some pics uploaded the 29th. Hopefully Mother Nature will comply for the first of the season camping. We are looking forward to a great time (without the snow).

Where we're going has the cement tables on the pad, I usually use a 10' easy up over it. I always use the easy up and use the awning for sitting area

27RLWS Awning Size

Take a look at this new RV park here on Douglas Lake that opened this month. TVA will get the water levels as we get closer to the summer. They keep the levels low in the winter.
