Replacing the awning on your recreational vehicle has never been easier or more hassle free.
When the awning on your camper, trailer, or motor home falls apart all you have to do is go online. There are dozens of companies that manufacture such awnings and many of them sell directly to the public through their websites.
All you have to do is locate the awning you need and order the awning that you need. You can save yourself money and hassle by installing it yourself once it arrives.
You can even replace your old awning with a new roll up or retractable awning that comes out at the touch or press of a button or the turn of a crank. This means you can quickly set up your shade without putting down any poles or building any structures. It also means that you can quickly pack up awning in a few seconds when you want to move out.
You should be careful when you looking for an RV awning replacement because every awning doesn’t fit every RV. Some awnings won’t fit curved RVs or older models. Others will only fit the models they were built for.
The way to determine if an awning will fit your RV is to take a close look at the website. The website should tell you if the awning you’re interested in will fit your RV. If it doesn’t you can save yourself money and trouble by calling or e-mailing the manufacturer and asking if the awning will fit your RV. This way you won’t waste your money and time on an awning that doesn’t fit your vehicle.
You can install your new awning on your RV yourself or you can have it done by a professional. Most RV dealers have technicians onsite who will install awnings for you. They might even be willing to install awnings that you order yourself for a price if you ask them.
Anybody should be able to install a simple hand operated awning but you might want to hire somebody if you want a mechanical awning. A mechanical awning is one that unfolds itself using electric powered motors. The advantage to such awnings is that you don’t need to crank them. The disadvantage is that they will need electric power from your generator or your RV’s engine.
Any work on the electrical system of a modern RV should be done by a trained technician with the proper tools and equipment. This means that you should go to the dealer or a garage that services RVs to get a mechanical awning installed.
There is no reason why you should put up with a broken or ripped awning on your RV. Hundreds of attractive modern awnings are available online at really good prices.
A good suggestion is to check your RV awning before you head out for the season. That way you can determine if you need to replace it before you leave home.
