I wish that they had a size between the two. One seems too large and the other too small.

What was the issue setting up the 6 sided one? I have done it a few times now, without any trouble at all. That is one thing I love about it, so quick and easy to set up by myself.


We just bought the six sided one after seeing one on our trip to Florida and love it. Very easy to set up and good size. We thought the four sided one would be a bit small.

We use this Coleman screen tent, and it really does setup in no time. Easiest one (by far) to setup of ones we have owned. Coleman Instant

Good video. Seems to be relatively effective at retracting, even in high winds. If you watch the videos closely, though, there is a lot of movement between the awning housing itself and the "trailer" roof. Looks like all of the torque from the wind on the awning could result in damage due to bolts/rivets pulling out of a fibreglass roof. Of course, it is likely that any awning in a 90kph wind could cause damage to the trailer.

The video also shows a "smart room" attachment, a screen/add-a-room attachment for this type of awning.

The awning seems to have been marketed in Europe as the Dometic Premium.

The awning is also effective in picking up women.



Family fun. Shows the room attachment too. Sure wouldn't want auto-retract to work with this though.
