Looking for a awning

I want to put an awning on my recently purchased cherokee, any suggestions.
I have been looking at them on the net but so many different ones, is there really that much difference in them?

No there really isn't that much difference in them. Your two major players are Carefree and A&E (which is owned by Dometic) A&E seem to be the most commonly used and are good solid awnings.

My suggestion is to watch for a sale at Camping World. If you aren't a member then it would be the perfect time to join while you are buying your awning as many times if you watch their sales you might get an extra 10-20% off if you are a member or they may have free installation. Either way it pays for the membership many times over.

Check out this 16' awning . The seller also has other sizes.
As NWJ stated, there are two major players. Both are very close in design.
Also, if you need help installing the awning, there are many site with instructions and some have a few videos.

An excellent question and you should call Forest River about this one. For installation refer to the manual for the awning or let CW do it for you (If you buy there)
