Manual Awning Pics

For those of you who might be curious about the manual awning. I just picked up my trailer with that option. It's the Carefree model. Rolls out pretty easily, the legs are stored in the front channel. Pull them out, extend them and then set then in the seats on the trailer or anchor them to the ground.006.jpg

Sweet. Looks like from the pics that manual one will allow for slope and front - back tilt adjustments that the classic awing allows.

It does seem pretty adjustable from the playing around I did with it today between rain showers. I do know that as it is rolled out you can't open the trailer door until you have the support legs out. It tends to drop pretty quickly once you have it out three or four feet.

Good option....
I like that it has the channel to allow you to use a screen room if you want.
The electric awning lacking that feature is a deal killer for us.

Also love the arms attaching to sides . Besides a screen room even a sun screen attaching in the grove . Pat

The electric awning does have a channel - however unless one disables the automatic retract feature and figures out a way to attach the side pieces it is still not real compatible with a screen house addition - just thought you might want to know it does have the channel though. 😀

Not sure if the screen room will work with this model as there are no horizontal supports you have with the old style manual awning.

You may be right about the screen room . Pat
