1964 Globetrotter and Awning

I own a Globetrotter and the door swings to the right, according to Zip Dee an * foot awning would fit the trailer, but what does it do the the usage of the screen door within the door? and what does it do as far as opening the side door? Does anyone have a picture of a 19' globetrotter like mine with that awning on it? Thanks

Well, that's exactly the reason we went with a pole & rope awning on our '64 Globetrotter.

The ZipDee armature prevents the door from opening beyond 90-degrees. They used to make a fitting that allowed you to release the bottom of the arm from the trailer and swing it out & stake it into the ground. It was a clip-type fitting. But it is my understanding that it is no longer offered as a standard fitting. It may be possible to customize a standard fitting with a clip to achieve the same result, but I'm not sure. Even if the bottom fitting issue can be resolved, I'm not sure the door would still be able to open 180-degrees (flat against the trailer) due to the top part of the armature.

We gave up exploring the various ZipDee options because we really like the pole & rope awning vintage look and that's want we really were after anyways. We've never looked back - we love our vintage style awning. With the GlobeTrotter's smaller size, I can put it up by myself - no problem.

Thanks, I think it may be a sacrifice, getting the zip dee and not allowing the door to swing full open, because it is a '64 and we have a lot of manual things to do on it as is, we really would like an awning. Just wondering about the door situation when watching an installation videos and looking at the door it looked quite close. I have seen some 19' footers with the awning and the owner's of those didn't look too dissatisfied. Thanks so much for the response.
