How far out from the PUP does it go? It looks like about 10 feet. Did you tell them it was a PUP when you ordered it? We had a big Carefree on our old highwall, but it didn't stick out that far...

It looks about normal to me for the width out. Photos can be deceiving. What is your thought on this? Does it feel a lot longer than your old domestic? Can you visit a local campground with a tape measure and measure a few.

As far as I know, the bad awnings are primarily made for pop ups. You just do not see people in TT's or 5th using a bag awning.

This is so screwy. It is a simple triangle but something seems off.

I wish I could help more. At this stage I would pull it to a large campground and talk to others about it. I also would measure others poles, awnings, etc. Try to get as many measurements of the triangle as possible.

Vin.

Awning

Looks like a great angle if it rains !!
But it would suck. At that height.

I found last fall when I was looking to replace a bag awning that they sold leg extensions to use in carport mode.

The easiest fix would be to have the material shorter ... that would pull the support arms up and back.

Do you still have door clearance from the awning? The Dometic awning we have will be caught by the door if we don't have the legs on the ground. Thanks to this, we have a pin sized hole above the door :-(

Would you happen to have a picture of it setup?

Afraid not. This happened when the poles were positioned on the lower support holders and not on the roof.
