I agree as I sure liked the old style. Really was not that bad to lower or raise. Later RJD

I have a pole set on order,,, so that I can leave it down when it is sprinkling !!!
Should end your worries about wind as long as you use good judgement. Later RJD

Luckily there's a solution for that.

2016 nights camped "0"
2015 nights camped "34"
Even tho I believe your solution is a good one,,,

There is no comparison to the quality of these 2 awnings !!!
And I will never trust this Power Pic 0 Crap like I did our old Manual !!!

One of the things I miss the most is the adjustably of the Manual one !!!
The way you could drop it way down and keep rain from blowing in !!!
And still be able to sit outside,,, have a cold one,,, and watch the Creek rise !!!
LOL !!!

Then there are those of us who thoroughly enjoy their power awnings.

Since power awnings are designed for easy use, I suggest they are best used accordingly...retracted overnight...retracted when leaving the campsite...deployed when wanted...deployed in inclement weather only when they can be monitored...and no tie downs.

Yes, this does preclude a prolonged deployment with screens, lights, etc...where a manual awning may make more sense.

So, I suggest one's preference is based upon intended use.

And I absolutely love my power awning.
