New awning recommendations??

The wind just got finished destroying our awning (even though it was rolled up & "secure" on the side of the RV.)

Since we now need an entirely new awning setup, can anyone make a recommendation? What type, motorized or not, brand, length, etc.

We have a 37-foot '93 Bounder.

I would replace it with the very same manual awning,it is much stronger
then the electric one and more trouble free. IMHO

Upon closer inspection, I see my wrecked awning is a Coleman Faulkner Ultra. Google tells me they're out of business. Can anyone suggest an exact replacement or close to it?

Check A@E I believe they have replacement awnings. I got just the fabric, but seems I read of other replacements. Hope so

We replaced the original awning on our 2001 Adventurer with an A&E 8500 awning from Camping World. The 8500 came with a new style locking mechanism that's less likely to open in high winds, rain dump feature on the rear support, and a metal cover.

The best thing was that it could be installed using the same holes for the brackets as the original awning. We ordered it when it was on sale and were able to get it for less tan the insurance estimate, so there was no out of pocket expense. The technician installed it in less than 1/2 an hour and we were on the road.

I see the 8500 and the 9000 on the internet. Can't really tell the difference other than the price. Can anyone tell me what the difference is?

The closest I can tell is the 8500 is a polyester fabric with an acrylic coating. Also the metal cover is optional.

The 9000 is an acrylic fabric with a standard metal cover. The 9000 is lighter, retains it's color better, and the material supposedly dries faster. The acrylic fabric is also less likely to allow the growth of mildew. Our 2013 Adventurer came with the 9000 series power awning.

I lost mine and had Camping World replace it w/ the same A&E Manual type frame and awning fabric. Now I secure it @ top when not in use. It pulled out while in storage when 100 mi winds came thru Denver!!
