need some shade

we have a class a with a large slide on passenger side. it has an electric awning over the slide, that gives absolutely no shade. does anyone have any ideas of how to get more shade for us, the sun in florida is brutal and I want to sit outside and get the breezes.

You may be able to add an awning to the side of the slideout, that was one of the changes we had Monaco make when we ordered our new 43DFT.

If you are talking about a power awning, and not a slide topper, you can add a sunscreen panel to the awning. you can get a two panel system, the top panel hangs down about 3 feet and stays and rolls up with the awning, the lower panel zips on when you need more shade. a ladder isn't required this way.

AK is right. We bought a 6 ft from SHADEPRO.COM . slides into awning track and hangs down 6 ft. Really works sweet.

Do you have a source for this two-part sunscreen?

Thanks, Fran
