two years ago I was traveling along lake Huron and we had 70 MPH gusts coming off the lake, had to pull over in one of those roadside parks on M25 because it was blowing me all over the place. No problem with the awning coming loose but after I stopped we had a huge oak tree branch break loose from a tree and crushed the tube and tore a hole in the awning. It took 3 tubes and two awnings from the dealer before they were able to fix it. Those 20 foot tubes don't do very well when they are shipped...lol.
Insurance prorated it and cover just over half the price. What a rip.
