Need help with bathroom & awning

Hi everyone,

Contacted ZipDee and received a quote of $1,600 for an awning. Serious???

Does anyone have any other suggestions. I'm thinking about either a heavy duty patio umbrella with the sand filled base or a gazebo for $200.

Previous owners installed a sink over the 12volt and covered the walls in linoleum. I am removing the sink and linoleum but need ideas on how to

I really don't care about having a sink in the bath just want to be able to shower. Have been looking into an tankless instant hot water heater but
don't know what kind??? If anyone has bath pics they could share to give
me some ideas I would appreciate it.

For the awning, you can get an A&E for about half that price. You can get them at most any A&E/Dometic RV place. Here's a photo of what one would look like on your trailer:

I've been looking for a vendor for A&E Dometic awnings and have been told by three RV shops that they do not sell the curved hardware for airstreams anymore due to lack of sales. All three said they called the company directly to confirm. Am I being mislead??

One other idea - which you've probably already considered - a portable pop-up type canopy. We're using a 10x10 right now - and the screen sides are a nice addition. Cheap and easy to position wherever you need it....
