Awning for my 16' Bambi?

My 16' Bambi didn't come with an awning. I think I would like this feature. Does anyone have any advice on awnings? Do they make them for the 16'? Which dealer in SoCal can install it for me/who would do the best job?
Thanks for your help!

I have similar but older. My caravel is 17 feet. I ordered a Zip Dee thru Lewster and was super happy with the purchase.
I had C&G install it - again absolutely no complaints!

Just finished first trip with the new ZipDee(Beverly Beach Bash).
Go with a Zip Dee.. They are great even in a downpour on the Oregon Coast.

great!

I was just worried that the trailer is so small, heck the awning would only be about 12' wide - if that!
Zip Dee sounds like the way to go. Thanks for all your help!

I concur! My first trip out with it was Beverly Beach and it passed the downpour test!

More like 7 feet - but it's still a great thing to have!

I just took a look at a picture of your Caravel and it is indeed a pretty thing. I particluarly like the Jalousie windows in the door. I have a 67 Caravel and I would love to see how your trailer looks with the Zip Dee awning...both up and down. Could you post a picture? Thanks,

Forgot to mention, the light was fading so I wanted to make sure I hurried up and got a shot - so I didn't extend the awning fully.

Our Bambi 16' Quick Silver came with a Zip Dee awning. Works great and has side conforming (bend at the top) arms that follow the shape of the AS.
