awnings?

Recently bought 1993 B 190. It needs an awning. What is a good choice for this rv? What are bad choices?

Sorry I can't help much on a B 190, but ZipDee is the most popular awning on Airstream trailers. You might want to check with them at www.zipdeeinc.com
BTW, welcome to the forums. I used to live on LI many years ago.

I think for a van, your best bet would be a self contained awning that extends out of its own box with arms that unfold. I don't know the brands, but I've seen them on smaller trailers and class C moho's. Although ZipDee is A+, I think this type of awning would be more suitable and practical for the B van. Would look a lot better too, imho. Haven't we all lived on LI at some point in our lives?

You can save a ton of money if you go with a vintage pole awning, there a guy on Long Island making one up for me.

a 10 x15 with the poles is under $250.

Zip Dee!

Our 310 came with a Zip dee that needed a repair piece for one of the struts. The folks at their service line are very kind and helpful. Got the right part and it is like new!

Good service is worthy of praise!!
