Rear window awning

Has anyone installed an awning over the window in the rear of the fifth wheel? I saw one today by Carefree. I took down all of the numbers and called about it. It turns out that it was a bay window awning that is no longer produced. Any suggestions? I was thinking of getting a side window type and mounting it on the rear. Here is the problem with Carefree, they have 6" increments up to 7', then jump to 8", I need 7'-6" width. I wanted the see through, screen type, of fabric. Dometic makes the size but I don't think they have the fabric I wanted.

I have seen a fabric that snaps on to the rear window on a lot of 5er's that are used by snowbirds. These are semi-transparent window coverings that have different translucent values, this range from 60% to 95% in the amount of transparence value.
This might be a better alternative for you. Les maintenance and easier care fabric.
