Awning De-Flapper

I'm going to buy a awning de-flapper. Any advice on which is the better de-flapper? CP has 4 different models. My local supplier carries the first and third de-flappers.

I'm leaning toward the first one as it seems better, i.e., bigger is better.

Thanks,

Rick

Re: Awning De-Flapper

If you are having an issue with wind attacking your awning, you can just not extend it fully, giving the wind less "sail" to catch.

Re: Awning De-Flapper

Rick, what ever you go with....let us know which you finally decided on and let us know how they work for you. A review, if you will?

A little 10' awning, I'm thinking isn't a whole lot of shade to begin with (unless the sun is on the other side of the trailer) and you're going to need all you have. Kind of like a 10'x10' pop up.....just never enough......sure don't want to give any of it up.

We also have the second one which we bought at Canadian Tire.
They seems to work good, are easy to install and store.

Your Washington RV Supply Guy can supply you with de-flappers you might want to contact him.

I'm leaning toward the first one as it seems better, i.e., bigger is better.

Thanks,
