Motorhome Awnings And Accessories That Provide Protection And Comfort


Vacationing in a motor home is a wonderful experience but one that should not be started without a quality awning. RV dealers may offer to fit your home with an awning but you owe it to yourself to compare the materials, craftsmanship and customer reviews before making a decision. There is a difference in the performance of motorhome awnings and finding this out once on the road is a mistake you do not want to make.

 

A good awning will consist of vinyl or acrylic fabric and be treated to resist mold, mildew and UV rays. Vinyl will block 100% of the sun's rays and is totally waterproof. Acrylic fabric is not completely waterproof but has a 22% higher cooling shade due to the woven fibers that allow warm air to travel up and out. Both vinyl and acrylic fabrics are simple to clean and come in a wide variety of colors and prints.

A leader in motor home awnings is Dometic with one of the largest selections on the market. Since Carl Munters and Baltzar von Platen discovered the absorption technology in 1922, the cooling technology provided by Dometic has surpassed the expectations of other companies. If you have an existing awning and wish to try Dometic, replacement fabric is also available. Read more about selections and how to purchase Dometic motorhome awnings at campingworld.com.

Girard is another excellent choice in motor home awnings touting the best warranty in the industry. Besides the fact that all Girard products come with a limited lifetime warranty, this company was also first in introducing motorized lateral arms that make cranking a thing of the past. Many large RV dealers, like tomraper.com carry the Girard line of awnings. You can also select an automatic vertical window screen that provides total shade on windows by a remote control, following the sun wherever it may be.

Another fine example of how craftsmanship can deliver great motorhome awnings is to visit camperpartsworld.com where Carefree of Colorado offers RV awnings. Specializing only in RV equipment, you can find awnings and all the necessary hardware needed for any size motor home. Repairs are also never a problem with this specialized company.

Patented Shadow pattern acrylic colors can be found with A&E awnings that have long lasting colors due to the woven in method used. Tautness is never a problem with the patented anti-slack rafter. Pplmotorhomes.com carries the latest in A&E awnings that will fit your Winnebago, Airstream, Prevost, Monaco, Holiday Rambler, Itasca, Fleetwood and many other models.

A variety of accessories are available to keep awnings safe and secure.

Voted most innovative product idea by Camping World, the wedge is inexpensive and easy to place on your RV awning. Visit awningairwedge.com for more details on how to order.

Prices for awnings can vary depending on the type of material, size and hardware requested but wholesale dealers like rvpartscountry.com can offer discounted prices slightly lower than retailers. Expect to spend $250 for a basic 6-foot patio awning without the hardware. Poles, motorized units, tie downs and screens are some of the accessories that you may want to add. Window awnings that do not need removed are also a good idea. Watch for aftermarket sales and pick up a replacement motorhome awning at a fraction of the cost.
