Is Caravan Awning upgrade worth it?

We just upgraded from a class C to a 2020 Flying Cloud 27FBQ Rear Hatch. LOVE IT! We have been out four times in it and just went on first 80 degree plus trip. The AS did not have the non-patio side or rear awning when we bought it. The dealer offered to install them for $2500. Does anyone have any experience in the difference with and without one? Is it noticeable? Thanks!

Hugh difference in keeping the trailer cool in the sun. Seems like a fair price for two awnings installed...jump on it.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

The rear and street side awnings are absolutely worth it. We also added our awnings as Lucy did not have them from the factory. The price that they quoted you sounds fair.
