Hi Shari,

hmm...do you have any pictures of this/where did you get the idea from. I did see a 58/59 traveler with window awnings and he had poles that dropped down with the awnings - the owner told me it was original, have you ever seen this?

Thanks,
HB Beach Girl

Here's a picture...the window isn't open much, so you don't really see it well, but it'll give you an idea of what they look like. I do think they were an option as I have seen several trailers with the snaps on the window frames. This of course wouldn't work on the frameless Corning Glass windows.

I've not seen window awnings with poles...brackets attached to the trailer yes, but poles no. Doesn't mean they didn't do that, I've just not seen them.

Another idea is window awnings with two corner pockets and some kind of clip or band that holds them in place. I believe there are a couple of folks here on the froums that have made this style.

I used to have front and rear window awnings on my old trailer that zip dee made - had snaps above the window and elastic corners straps to hold the bottom of the awning.

Hello - we have one of the vintage (looking) awnings that came w/our 78 Argosy. Has the scallops. Poles need replacing as the screw mechanism that allows poles to telescope up/down are wallowed out and do not hold at all well. I was wondering if it might be possible to create some type of sleeve on the side of ours so that there would also be poles or something running lengthwise down the awning to help hold it out (no sag). Saw one in your pictures, Shari, (green w/red stripes, I think, w/wonderful vintage car) that showed that, but don't know if it came that way or if they created.

I don't know Leigh. Most of the pictures I have collected have been over the internet, not in person. REI and Campmor have a variety of poles, icluding a ridge pole that might work with your set-up...good luck!

Send a message via Yahoo to plowboy
Shademaker makes a vintage style pole awning as well as several 'bag' style awnings.
The bag style awnings have optional screen room/ add-a-room.

I have found them at the following sites:
jcwhitney.com
rvworkshop.com
idahocanvas.com
onthegocanvas.com (or www.storesonline.com)

Does anyone have one these bag awnings? Good or bad? The price seems very reasonable when compared to zipdee?

How do you know the correct size of the bead needed for a given trailer?
Does you coach had a awning rail? The size is the widthc of the awning rail. On our 22t theawning rail rins end cap to end cap and measures 12ft.

J.C. Whitney lists a pole awning that is supose to fit the awning track. I think we may go with that on ours. It has a scaloped fringe trim on the end away rom the coach but I don't recall if it has it on the sides.

I had a bag awning on the Traveler - it worked ok, took it off though, because the bag kinda flops around and scratches the aluminum

Oooops...Thought this was a new thread not the old one

Here is the current link to the Jc Witney. Seems they changed manufacture but I think we will give it a try for a while. If I am not happy with the material then I atleast have the hardware and can get a local shop to make a new canvas.

I saw this posting on the vintage airstream email list.

Looks like a nice deal on pole awnings. If I had an extra $250 I'd get one.

RV Workshop

If anyone has tried one of these, let us know how you like it.

What does the term 'bag awning' mean? That's a new one on me.

Stephanie,

I think it means the awning is rolled up and zipped into a bag that stays on the trailer hanging from the awning rail. It would have a tendancy to bounce up and down, back and forth and rub at your trailers finish.

Thanks. I don't think I'd like that. It doesn't seem like that much trouble to set up when you need it.
