Finding an affordable awning
Hi, I am brand new at this Airstream stuff. I just bought a 1973 Sovereign 31' and am remodeling it currently. The door side awning is missing and I am wondering if anyone has put anything but the Zip Dee awnings up? I have a line on a Carefree brand awning for an affordable price, but wondering if because of the curviture, that is a dumb idea.

Carefree and A&E both made awnings for Airstreams in the 70's, and they had curved arms that matched the sides of the trailers... So if that is what you are talking about, then you are fine. If you are considering putting an awning on with straight arms, then stop right there--you will end up with a sail driving down the road.
