Which slide out awnings?

I have a 2014 33CKTS and would like to install awnings over my slide outs. Do any of you know what brand sabre uses from factory or have any recommendations?

as far as i know, you don't have much of a choice, since only two companies make them, Dometic and Carefree of Colorado.
we have a Dometic that we got from CW and it's been great and well worth the money. but wish we'd had installed before we bought it from the dealer.
would've been much cheaper.

I was kinda thinking it would be expensive to. I might install them myself to save some money. Just depends on what they want for labor.

We found several YouTube videos on Slide topper installation. Ultimately we wound up ordering them installed at the factory, but I would have done it myself if we decided to go that way.

BTW...The hardest part for me of any DYI project on the camper is drilling that first hole.

One determined person can install them, but it is a lot easier with 2.

I installed a 16' regular A&E main awning by myself, but it was one H--- of a job.

Thanks guys. My wife has already said she would help me. She has no problem jumping right in when I need help. Simchasabre, that is exactly what I was thinking. I don't like the drilling part!!!

Sabre uses Dometic slide out awnings.

CW advertises $39 installation on anything you buy from them. I think that might be a good deal for installing slide topper awnings.
