The Best Awning

So Glad to hear more people are using this great service Marti has She made us ours which was at the time the longest she has made 26 ft , her husband made the 4 poles it is a chore to put up though takes Rondi and I about 20 minutes, we made our own rope tie downs using color appropriate blue and white to match the fabric made tighteners out of 3/4 inch wood dowels drilled through middle for the rope to thread through, we use 2 ways of set up depending where we are at one way is 2 guide ropes on each pole for high wind areas, which we have been in 40 mph gust with no issue just trailer felt like it was flying held in place by awning. other configuration is 2 ropes on each end and 1 rope each in middle. we also use re-bar in ground to hold down ropes with soler lights fitted over the re-bar and the ones with flamingo's from hobby lobby, one note I would love to have some made for windows on other side just don't know how to attach them will have to check with Marti
