We have a 17A in the que, completion May 2, and we are finalizing our build sheet. We are not happy about the Dometic electric, having seen the may problems posted on the forum. I don't know the brand of the awning; I just know that it is not the (Carefree?) one they offered a year ago. The pictures that our rep sent us looked a little flimsy.
I really appreciate the info that I've picked up from the forum over the last few months. Thanks

Got the manual awning on my 17B in August. Haven't had a lot of experience with it yet, but it is not flimsy, is easy to set up, and I like that it is not electric.
Ha! -The only motor to breakdown is me... or a friend, and one less demand on the batteries. I also like that it has the triangular support of legs (....or arms?)
Hope you enjoy, whatever you choose!
