Window Awnings Needed

I have a brand new 2013 View Profile 24g and it has 3 windows that I would like to install awnings on. 2 are 42" and 1 is 48".. I have Googled and found several that will work. I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience at buying and installing them? Also where did you buy them and are you happy with them?

Thanks for your time LeeB

I bought three A&Es with the Metal Guard option. I installed them my self. I found a level to be handy.

I got mine at Gamblers in Quartzite AZ for $80 each. I was lucky that they had the ones that matched my patio awning in their discount section.

Gamblers recommended double sticky black butyl tape for the rail and butyl putty tape for the arm brackets. They also recommended stainless steel screws one size bigger than the ones furnished with the awnings for the rail.
