Thanks. It attaches using the same type of rail that the main awning uses. Same type that boats use for Bimini Tops and canvas covers. Very Strong and easily slides in and out of the track.

Definitely super easy to tear down, you can do the entire tear down from the ground. As the setup requires you to get on the bunk to slide the awning in to the track (which only takes about 2 mins).

I will have more info later when i make a write up and have MUCH better pics.

This is awesome. We left home in December and are in California now. We always have our PUGS and reflexit on. Some of the days we had to scramble out and take our PUGS off due to high winds in Corpus Christi, Galveston, Gila Bend. This idea is great!! And very nice looking. Keep us updated on the project.

Bunk end covers

Looks Good!!!
I'm in the process of doing something similar but elected to use insulated tarps that have 1/8 inch of foam between the layers. The channel and bead on the trailer end is simple enough but I'm not sure about support on the ends. How did you secure the short stand pipes to the bunk fold outs?

I like the concept. It would be much more convenient if it could be deployed and stored on the wall without total removal. Similar to a bag awning.

Very cool, looks like a pro job, can't imagine what it'd look like if I did it! Nice work.

As an FYI, I am very pleased with my results and abilities to sew! as a result of this, I am in the process of working with several boat and awning manufacturers to produce these. I will update you all, if interested, with details.

Again these will not compete with the low cost of PUGs but will compete on looks, durability, setup and overall satisfaction.

Chibullsan I take it that you are prob from Illinois which is where I'm located to. GoCubs... I am very interested in what you have going on and would also be very interested in purchasing or discussing it with you. When you get all your things worked out I would appreciate it if you could pm me and we could work something out. Thanks, John Barnes.
