After spending the night before loading the trailer so we can dash out right after work, it seems we overlooked something.

First trip out with our new 25' Flying Cloud. Awning provided excellent shade for the side of the Airstream with noticeably cooler interior temperatures. Sadly the gnats were unstoppable so we did not set up chairs outside!

Awning open by itself is woefully inadequate at my favorite destination, which is the wilds of northeastern Canada - there is NO living underneath it without serious bug protection. It needed a no-see-um screen to keep us from being eaten alive, but we have an Interstate, which is one of the smallest Airstreams in terms of available storage. For that reason, I couldn't use one of the commercially-available canopy-style "screened porches", which are very bulky. I had to design a screening system to fit our available space. And while I was at it, I made it adjustable - if I want, can extend the awning only part way instead of fully, and the screen will still attach (important because we find that our Carefree awning is too unstable even in a light breeze, if fully extended... better to reel it in).

Blog post with sourcing and instructions here, and here's a shot of the finished product. It's not very visible in the photograph, but there is a magnetic (neodymium) doorway / closure in the middle of the front of it.

Husband and dog relaxing under the awning at Paul B. Johnson State Park. We were grateful that it didn't rain the entire trip.
