Where's the best source for an awning?


My '77 Excella had the awning removed by the PO. I am in need of a new one. Where is the best place to get one?

I called ZipDee, and direct, they want $1400 for a new one. Seemed high to me, but I'm new to RVs. What do you all recommend?

Hi there, I had the same question earlier this year and did alot of research on the forums. I think most would agree that the zip dee is not that much more money than other options and the quality and fit of the zip dee is superior. I called them directly and they set me up with a local shop to install it. I am very happy with my new zip dee. What a difference!

Everything will be alright in the end. If it is not alright now, then it is not the end.
