RV Awning Protection Covers

does anyone use an awning cover when the awning is rolled up and your RV is in storage or going down the road? are they worth it? any problems? i hope it won't fly off going down the highway! that'd be throwing a $100 out the window! i searched the forum so this post wouldn't be a duplicate. if this is a duplicate post, my apologies

My Silverback came with the awning cover already installed. So far I love the way it keeps the awning clean when rolled up, and havenít had any issues with it during travel.

Could you post a picture of it?

i found some online. i presume your cover is white or opaque white so as to block the UV rays from destroying the material/fabric. is that the case?
thanks so much for the replies!

Yes, as you can see in the photo it is white. My trailer is at the storage lot so this was the best I could do for a photo of it.

Thanks for the picture. I was wondering how it would work and it looks like it acts the same way as the window awning I just had installed. I like the concept for sure but price is a big factor. Does it really keep the awning material cleaner?

So far it has kept the awning spotless. Keep in mind that I just picked the Silverback up this past March. You can see in the photo below how the cover lays on the awning when it's extended.

I had an awning cover on my old fifth wheel. My new one is a Crusader bunkhouse and I can not find the awning protector for my new one, any suggestions?
