Awning shade

I'm wanting to purchase an awning shade, 6x10 thing that goes in your awning tube and hangs down. Any one have one, what kind, does it roll up with your awning or do you need to take it out when u roll up?

I have one that is 6X16. Slidees in slot on awning tube. Easy install and take down, fold up and store. Worth its weight in beer.

You can roll it up into the awning. I do it with mine with no problems. Makes sure it rolls up with no creeses.

I have a 6X16 that I leave in the tube and it rolls up in the power awn just fine. Just be aware of weight and size. If the power awning seems to be under stress when rolling up, then remove it and store it each time. As said before, its not hard to slide it in and out.

Here's a pic of ours. 6x16. It does roll up in the awning fine, but it is heavy & the awning arms struggle to go up with it attached. So I only roll it up in the awning when I know I still want use it later (i.e. roll it up when sightseeing for the day or when a storm is coming). Otherwise, for winter or at the end of an RV-ing weekend or week, I unzip the shade & just leave the little section that stays in the awning tube.

It's really nice. Gives us extra shade.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Thanks, my awning is only a 14foot, so it looks like a 10x6 maybe not that heavy. This is what I'm looked at.

Thought about getting one as our favorite park and spot is right on the lake and the sun comes in on the awning side low and off the lake. Would also need one across the end due to the angle we're parked at to really do the trick.

Somewhere on the forum someone said they had a Sunpro awning. Something like 4 ft section slid in and you left that there to roll up. The rest zippered on and off. Might search for that thread. Google sunpro awning.

I don't remember the brand of ours, but what you describe is similar to ours. A 6" wide section stays in the awning track & the rest of the shade is what zips off.

They really help with the glare and heat from the sun. It also keeps the sun off the outside of our refrigerator which helps it cool. I love ours. Our awning is electric and struggles to close without the awning drop so I always take the drop off and store it away. By the way, I was in a Camping World store the other day and they had a display of both the drops and the end shades. You might check them out.
