Paramount awnings

Looking at coaches and some have carefree Paramount awnings. Anyone care to share your likes/dislikes. Are they good, easy, durable, reliable?? Will the slightest wind cause these large awnings to have to be pulled in? They look like they could be either really nice OR tons-o-trouble....Thoughts?

The only draw back of the paramount awnings is that they will collect water on the upper flat section and can stretch the fabric. The cure is to install the 3* wedges that Carefree has available for the pre 2015 installs. I have two on our Bus and we love them. They can take some wind, but they are more sensitive due to their size. They do come down lower to protect from the afternoon sun. I do not leave them out if there is a chance of rain. I haven't installed the wedges yet, but most of our camping is in AZ where we don't get a lot of rain.

This thread has about 107 posts on the awnings. I think Tiffin is now installing them with the 3 degree wedge mounting plates.
