Sun pro shade awnings

I'm thinking of buying an awning drop for our coach and would like to know if anyone has purchased this item from SunPro and if the added zipper option is worth the additional $65? Also, can the complete awning drop be rolled up with the awning or must it be unattached for travel? How satisfied are you with this product?

I love the drop 10 ft drop with a zipper at 4ft I bought from
ShadePro Inc. the 4 ft section rolls up with the automatic awning once you quickly zip off the 6 ft section.


ShadePro Inc.: Vista Shade for Electric RV Awnings

No connection with the business except a happy customer.

We have the nine foot drop with the zipper at three feet. The three-foot portion stays on the awning and rolls up nicely when the awning retracts. We use it without the six-foot zipper-on-extension most of the time -- using only the three foot drop. In fact, the extra six-foot section still has the original ShadePro creases in it. \ken

PS. We also purchased our slide toppers from ShadePro -- we've been very happy with their products.

Ken/bumps. When using the 3 ft section alone, are there grommets on that section which allow you to tie it down?

I wonder how that would work with a Girard style awning? Guess I'll have to shoot them an email and ask.

Ted, You have the 10ft drop. Is your awning actually that high or do you stake it down at an angle?
