Have any of you folks had experience with "Awnbrella"? It's an interesting product that uses an arched aluminum "rafter" that is installed between the sidewall of the AS, and the awning roller.

When the awning is extended and these are installed, it creates a gentle arch in the awning so rain water can't "pool".......yes, I know the procedure of "tipping" the one end of the awning a coupe notches below the other end. But this look's like it'll do the job better, at at the same time give more clearance so the entrance door doesn't contact the awning. Those cute little rollers on the top of the door eventually wear the awning.

Comments are appreciated.

I have a center rafter that has never been installer. Never seen a reason to use. Easy to tip one end and get good run off.

If it's anything like the center rafter on the ZipDee awning on our Avion, it's well worth having.
