Keep it. It greatly increases your living space, gives you a place to sit outside in inclement weather, shades your unit and keeps it much cooler.

And it looks great.

I'd keep it if I was you. An awning is a wonderful thing to have, especially in sunny climates like Texas.

Many here, including myself concur. Awnings provide cover from rain and shaded space that we use whenever possible. Maybe its just me but there's something relaxing about sitting under our awning with a lounge chair, a glass of wine, and a light rain.

while most streamers DO like and use the awnings...

some don't and some prefer the free standing erectable canopies...

that sell for under a 100$ at 10x10.

keep in mind the op z/d has NO CLOTH.

which means another 400-700$ to get if functional...

and includes reloading it, dealing with 40 year old springs and things...

and probably HELP with the process, IF when it happens.

what2do is never simple.

cheers

2AIR, Thats a huge eyeopener...Just when I thought I had it figured out....Thanks for the heads up. Think what I should do is just sell the awning and the frigde and use the $ for something new and pretty.

I'd still say keep it and get the fabric when you can. After all, an Airstream without an awning is kind of like 2air wandering around here without his avatar.
