Hi Tim,
They work great - it's amazing how keeping the sun off the windows helps cool the trailer.... Plus, I got a new toy to play with - a Sailrite Ultrafeed
It came in handy when I altered our Patty O' Room too.
Thanks for the workshop at Bandon last year.

Hi techfan and paulw... I knew I saw awnings somewhere on the forum before. They look great! Do either of you have closeup photos of the awnings or a list of what you used to attach to the trailer and purchase info by chance? I'd love to make a few awnings for our 5.0TA.
Thanks so much.
Lucy
I have a complete set of plans that I developed and printed in pdf format. I used that to do a workshop at Bullard's Beach last year and gave out the directions. Paul and Norma were there and used those to make their own and they did a beautiful job. I have been trying to upload the same file but do not have "permission" so working on that with a moderator. When I get them up, they will be in the file section. If you can't wait, send me a pm with your email and I will email them to you. (We can't do attachments through the pm system, so I need your email address.) Also, if you search for "Recent Mods" you will find much of the info and some closeups.

AWNINGS - do them yourself

Anyone who wants to make awnings can get the pdf file from me. Send me a PM with your email and I will send the directions to you. (Attachments can't be added to the PM so I will need your email to send the pdf file.)

You can post the PDF in the thread if you want.

Thanks Tim, I will send you a PM with our email address. Thanks so much. It would be great to have them made and packed for when we take off on our next adventure!

I totally agree Donna, and actually the worst part of the KOA was the showers. But hey, we have one inside our trailer! And it is clean!

Just after the KOA, we went to Montana De Oro State Park, where we met Ross and Susan (aka "Rosssue"), and spent a wonderful day in a primo campsite that Ross secured for us. Had a great time meeting and talking to them. This is the view from our back window at Montana De Oro:

My ears are turning red. Very glad to have met Leon & Lindy and tour their 21. Although they picked up a week or two after we did they wasted no time in doing some nice mods. Gotta get off the dime!

Site 40 at the campround is at the very back which is nice but also is such that you can level up without unhitching.

I don't know if Tim made the announcement, but his PDF for the DIY awnings has been uploaded to the document center: http://www.escapeforum.org/forums/do...?do=file&id=54

Thanks for the hot link, Donna, and Tim, for a really first class presentation for a great mod. I need this.
