DW and I just ordered a V-Lite and got "toppers" as Texas sun heats slide out roofs something awful. Trash getting into seals in another issue also I hope to cut back.
I was told not to by previous dealer as "they flap in the wind". Well, put something under them!
Your awning needs to be tilted down somewhere. Our trailer we are replacing could not be adjusted and only option was roll it up. I miss the old manual ones with braces back to the coach that could be lowered until the door almost touched them and you would be good unless a "FROG" strangler came along.
