vintage 1964 awning

Well it's Spring again and time to air out the rope and pole awning for some new adventures. As I was assembling the awning the wife took some photo's, and when I was down loading them I remembered this thread. So I decided to add a few photo's of my old awning with the sides up, and the removable panels off. Screen room/Tent.
Hope every one has a fantastic year out there enjoying those Vintage Awnings

Just wondering, does anybody use a full length window awning streetside? I liike the idea of a single long window awning to shade the entire side of my FC. I have 12' rails on both sides but dont know how i would attach shorter legs to the side of the TT. Pics would be a huge help.

Thanks Seldencove. Your is very cool, I like it a lot. I love your trailer also.
I really like the rope & pole awning look for these older vintage trailers. We were so lucky ours came with the Safari. Still in great shape. Obviously the PO didn't set it up much.
I'm not Knocking the Zip Dee's or others. They are very functional and easier to set up for sure.
Just sayin.

Rumrunner, I have seen short pull out style awning running the whole SS shading windows and skin, done by Zip Dee. Sorry no pics. Couldn't hurt to call Zip Dee with your dimensions.

Thanks Batman, I have seen the zipdees also, but was really wondering about a vintage style. I know I have seen them in a few old pics but nothing recent. I'm pretty sure I can figure out the framing but was really wondering about mounting hardware. Anybody got an idea?

Wow,
makes me want to swap out my Zip Dee and save on weight and add the vintage style. They look really classy and present a very welcoming environment.

We love our Zip Dee and it is always great to see the variety of different ideas.

Does the screened room snap to the sides of the trailer? I have snaps down the sides of my trailer. I assume they were used for this purpose.

Hi matt,
No mine does not snap to the sides. Mine has vertical rope slide channel on the front and rear and the sides of the awning have rope sewn in them and slide in and up from the bottom then metal clips sewn onto the sides clip into metal rings sewn in along the top. The corners zip together and all of the panels zip off. However, there is a skirt that snaps on to the lower skin the length between the side panels and hangs to the ground to encloses the trailer side of the room from the elements.
Does yours have the extra rope slide channels on the sides also?

Dennis

No, I have the rope slide track along the top for the awning, then snaps every 12" or so down the sides and some along the bottom I think. Probably a very similar end result, just snaps rather than ropes. I am getting ready to buy a new vintage style awning. Maybe add the room later. Not sure how much I would use it though. I suspect it would be nice to have if the weather turned foul and we were staying for more than a couple days.

Thanks for the suggestions!

I made these from the same fabric as the large rope and pole awning on the curb side last year. These have a simple elastic cord on the top and corner straps on the bottom corners. Still working on the matching awnings for the front and rear windows.

Great Posts! I found this thread while doing some research for ours, the pictures are great and will be very helpful with my decision.
Any new ideas?

I had rope and pole style awning on 1962 2 ft. AS, it was made of very heavy canvas not lite wght. as todays awnings. Did not use much as real hassle to put up by my self plus side valance marked side of AS only way to stop was to safety pin back so would not rub sides. Made slip on covers for side windows, also those days [60s] very few rv parks or private campgrounds mostly state parks, lots of trees for shade no paved sites & not crowded. gave awning away after sev. yrs. Person I gave to did not keep long. For vintage look go for it...
