What color is the awning?

The awning on my Escape 21 is white at the top, transitioning to a tan at the bottom. Is this right? Or have I acquired some kind of stain/mold since I've left it rolled up since I bought the trailer in early April? There are very few photos of trailers with awnings deployed in the forum. One that I found shows a tan edge like mine, one does not.

thanks,

And there I was, scrubbing away like an idiot, thinking it was stained. Glad it finally dawned on me to ask. I'll go away now...

thanks,

I've been trying the 303 Fabric Guard on our awning. It seems to be helping to prevent stains and I'm hoping it helps prevent UV degradation.

Yep, it'll do that. I've used 303 for years and it does a great job with UV protection.

Yeah- that must be it. I'd better fill up and get this nonsense out of my system before I leave on my next trip.

Yes, that's it-- "Camel Shale Fade". I have to say I don't care for the color or the pattern. But since this is the first thing I've found regarding the Escape 21 that I don't like, I think that's doing pretty well.
