Ok, Ill bite. Just what is "Mexico Physical Damage Coverage"? Is that for when you turn your Bounder into a low rider & have to pay for bay door damage when you bottom out?

I have to believe that is why most insurers will not cover awning claims, or even offer to insure awnings for wind dammage.
How many have checked their policy for coverage due to wind dammage of awnings?
Those strong gust can come up without notice. You could be in the RV and not know it is coming. The odds of your awning being up or down when it comes is the same as getting struck by lighting.
It doesn't know you put it up and went to the store or it is down and you are inside.

Camping World will sale you a policy on any of your awnings. Patio, Windows or Slide.

They replaced a window one a Hurricane got. Even when it was rolled up.
And a 21' Patio one a quick gust got when I didn't have it tied down. Not sure if it was tied down would have helped. I was inside the MH when it happen and had no notice that it was coming.

Thanks everyone. I ordered the Camco ones with the springs. I plan to still use caution.

So, if you don't use what you are paying for,
they give you the benefit of paying less when you do use it ?!?!

Wow, what a country
