Good to know and can't wait to see the cost on 2 sets one for my back and front Roo, nice work and should be a good think for all with Roo's fingers crossed.

Just so everyone knows, the front and rear awnings are made differently to accommodate the different length and the wall slope. They are made to fit each end to allow the perfect coverage over the windows and along the walls. So If they are made and sold, they would be sold in sets (Front and Rear). For those who wish to have one that has a 3rd bunk, there would be an option for adding a third bunk ( if needed).

Again, this all is pending how my search for a manufacturer turns out. So we will see. Thanks for the support guys, glad to hear so many of you like the terrible sewing job i did .

I really want a set for 23iks.
Great design.
We used the insulation in our windows this winter. Kept us warm but condensation. These should help.

Condensation was a pain for us on our November trip to PA temp dropped to 20 at night and whole tent end was dripping, such a mess these covers would help with that also heating system in 23ikss is horrible as there is one rear vent, one in the bathroom and nothing up front, bad design if you ask me

Condensation is easily dealt with by allowing for air movement and using PUGs.

Those awnings look really nice
I am defenitly interested in some
Got some pugs last year for my 23ikss after reading about them on this forum. I'm not really impressed with the pugs. They are not easy to put on, I'm tall and still needed a ladder. Also with any amount of wind they would just come loose and slide off anyway. Don't really understand why people love them so much.

We've had the super high wind gizmos with Velcro for over six years and never once had them blow off.

The awnings ChibullsAN made do look really good though.
