Does anyone know this awning/Airstream owner?

We have just bought a 21' 1951 Flying Cloud and need to find an awning for it. A quote from a local RV shop for Zip Dee in Vancouver, Canada came in at $3000! Out of our budget. So I have been trolling websites trying to come up with another solution that would provide a 'rain' awning without poles and ropes to trip over. Absolutely LOVE this one we found on VintageAistream.com (cannot get through to them by email - they bounce back). Does anyone know the owners by any chance, know where it's from, etc? Many thanks for any tips...

Welcome

Looks like they are from California (Flag) and are WBCCI members. Their member number (Red Numbers) on endcap is: 13213. Someone from WBCCI should be able to put you in touch with them. Ed

ZipDee makes the best awnings in the world, I am not a REP, just a satisified client.

This might be on of those rollup bag awnings made for a pop-up camper. But I haven't been able to find one on line. I also think it looks great and might be a nice option.

This looks exactly like the dometic a&e awning on a popup camper we own. It looks identical except in color, ours is striped brown and tan. It is very similar to our zipdee but looks more vintage with the scalloped trim. We are selling the popup in the spring and I can ask my husband if he'd sell the awning separately if you are interested it is like new and is a brilliant design.

Years later, yes... but, did you ever find out about the awning? I also have a FC and would love to get the same style awning.

I believe it is an awning for a pop-up. Which could be a less expensive option. Good Luck

Possible ID

I have looked at this thread several times over the years since the OP asked about this awning and after seeing one recently at a flea market I have come to the conclusion that this awning pictured in the OP is a E-Z Awn awning. I don't think the company exists any more so the only way to get ones hands on this awning would be if one were offered for sale of from a RV salvage yard somewhere! Ed
