I have always had curbside awnings on my campers, use them mostly all the time, sometimes we don't in cooler temps.
We have a camper because we like to sit outside and the awnings make it so much more comfortable and comes in handy for those rain bursts that sometimes like to appear, of coarse if it is raining we like to set outside anyways.
As far as wind they can withstand winds and gusts up to about 20-25 mph before it becomes a problem, except if it is a wind hitting directly on the side of the trailer.
I have tie downs on mine to keep the twisting from happening, it handles winds up to about 40 as long as it is not a direct side wind. If it is going to be a serious storm or wind storm then they get rolled up and we sit in the patio canopy where the picnic table is, it is also anchored. Mine being a 34 has the long 25 curbside, with short window awnings on bedroom curbside, rear, streetside, then longer 12 on the living area window. The thing about the window awnings is they keep the sun from waking you up on the mornings you want to sleep in, and always keeps the boss happy because she does sleep in.
As far as rolling up everytime I leave the trailer does NOT happen unless I know there is going to be a storm, This is what insurance is for.
You might want to talk to Jackson Center because I believe you can get the window awnings on all their trailers because they are designed to fit the ribs, they are small so not much weight on the body. Not sure about the newer trailers shorter than 25 because I have never had one.
I am wondering about an change on our 34 though from the manual roll down to a electric Girard like what is on most motor homes. They also make them for camper towables, this way it has the wind sensor and will roll up on its own in strong winds and is remote/button control instead of the manual.
