I've only had the awning that came with my bus. So I have a limited opinion.
- try to get it to go over the door
- power would be nicer
splurge for one of these! http://www.girardrv.com/g2000.html
Life is too short to cuss at an awning
. and get the case for when you rub it on a tree limb
Misses NCBob can put it out or in, or you can get the rain sensor to do it automatically if it rains.
no down poles to get in the way or walk around, or hit your head on.
When your not driving, the awning is your living room. You drive your bus to the place you want to put the awning out. I've used mine more in the driveway than any where else. it's just a good place to sit and have a beverage.
I recommend it to as one of the first things purchased by converters.
just my opinion since you asked
