With one awning, when opened, the same amount of window is uncovered from the bottom up..This actually means the same amount of light from both windows... and, it'll look much better than a 'staggered' awning..

I am in the process of buying a new MH. It has the new type of interior blinds that roll down. The one that is closest to the window is a black screen like darkener that can be seen thru from the inside but reduces what can be seen from outside, including the sun. You may want to look into replacing your blinds as another alternative.

Never thought about that. Good point. After looking again at the OP's rig, you are probably right.

Actually there would have been 1.5 inches of extra room with an awning that overlaps each window frame by 6 inches, however I'm going with a single awning. All your input helped me make what I think is the best option.

Thanks,

Marc

As someone who has installed over a hundred of these, I don't think you have much of a choice. The foot of the awning arm is wider than the arm. I don't think you have enough room between the windows to mount two arms and center them. Remember the awning must be centered on the window, to look right. I don't think you have enough distance for this.

If it were mine I'd do what I wanted to do. Others opinions have no place in my decision process, I don't do anything just to obtain others approval.

Just because you asked!

Not sure what you are trying to link to but it's a partial email address. Were you trying to post a link to your roof?

The same problem exists at your other post as well.
