Awning drop shade

We would like to get an awing shade and of course looked at Zip Dee's offerings. Recommendations and advice would be appreciated. We have the powered awning on our 2015 Classic and wanted something that would setup easily, durable and simple.
Thanks

I have never used mine, and the PO of my trailer didnt know what it was. I figured it out when I saw the snaps on the awning flap about a month after I unrolled the shade and saw snaps on it. There are snaps on one side that line up with matching ones on the awning flap and grommet holes along the bottom to stake down with bungee cords. Other than that, just a piece of Sunbrella fabric.

The Zip Dee awnings for the back window and curb side are quite easily set up. I would go with those. Even a dealer would have trouble botching the install.

You may not have visited our local dealer. If they handed me a light bulb, I would install it personally robe sure it was done properly

Zip Dee Sun Shade

We have the sun shade and it really is amazing. We winter in Arizona and the trailer is situated so that the main awning is east west with a southern explore. The temperature difference is about 15-20 degrees cooler with the sun shade versus no sun shade.

Would highly recommend it.

PS - an easy install if you plan to go with it.

How did you attach your sunshade to your awning? Where did you find the material?
Thanks

We just received our Sun Shade from zip dee. Looks really nice and although we can't roll it up in our auto awning, it seems pretty easy to take off and put back on. We live in Florida so it is pretty necessary here!! We also will be traveling to North Carolina in late October and again for Christmas so we thought it might help keep the wind off of us too!!
