Oh dear, I just discovered the post you wrote to me asking some questions you asked back in June about the shade room I added to our 20' AS.
So sorry about that. I'll answer them now - better late than never !?!?
- What material did you use and where did you get it?
I got sun shade from arizonasunsupply.com. They have a wide selection. I recommend dark colors as they are easier to see through than light colors.
- Did you have to sew the zippered door yourself?
Yes, but I sew a lot so not a problem. I did get DH to help me hold and move the fabric as I did given the size of the piece. Also, I purchased UV resistant thread - which is a must unless you want it to rot. Also, I sewed the zipper on flat - both sides of the zipper, and THEN cut the opening along the open zipper. zipper opens from either side.
- How stable is it in high winds? Do you anchor your Zip Dee?
No idea, as we haven't had it long enough to test that, I did attach corner poles and those can be anchored, which would help. They also help support the weight.
- How long does it take for you to set it up after deploying the Zip Dee?
That depends on how many sections I attach. I can attach any of the 3 sections and any combination of the 3. I'd say, maybe 5 or 10 minutes each.
- Can you post some close-ups of the snaps?
I can't do that right now as the AS is covered in snow. I just used the regular marine snaps that they use on boat covers. Also, I purchased a Hoover Pres-N-Snap - that is a must but pricey. It's also good for a lot of things however!
