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.
