HEY! That's my trailer #1824! Those "3 separate awnings" are the ones I made that snap onto the window frames. Thanks for the pics ZEP!

Shari, if they snap on, how do you keep them standing out from the shell? Are they slid over the windows/frames and the windows are open? Hmmm, now that I've blown this up, I see you have the cool unframed glass. I wonder if I can do that with the 70's style window frames?

Did you order the fabric for the windows from TTA&C (makers of your awning) or direct from the fabric company?

They actually snap onto the window frames....when the window is open, the awnings are up - when they are closed, the awnings lay flat against the trailer. The window itself is what supports the awnings which are just fabric. Check out this post for some detail shots of them.

No, I have the older (pre '66) Hehr frames. You have to have a frame to attach the snaps to it, or modify the attachment method with elastic or velcro or something else if you don't have the frames.

Yes, but you would have to modify the design slightly to accomodate the rounded corners of the post '68 windows.

I ordered it from TTA&C when I ordered my awning so it would be the same dyelot and match.

Cool!!

hey shari, that's a pretty nifty idea! As said, they look very CUTE, and I imagine they work well at cutting down the heat and glare. Good job! How do the snaps attach to the window frame- with rivets? Looks like a fun rally- sometime I hope to be at one. -tim

Yes, they are riveted on to the frame. Check out this post for some detail shots of them.

Hope to see you at a rally someday too!
