If you have 2 48" windows in your slide, will it look dumb if you only have an awning on one window?
I only need one over the dining area window and they're about $215 each 60", with shipping.
But will it look unfinished with just one?
I could order one about 134" long to cover both windows, but that'll actually cost a little more than 2 60 inchers, and the installation might be a lot harder.
What do you guys think? I hate to order something and wished I had did something different.
Tonite I ordered 2 60 inchers but I have til Mon to change / cancel it.

You can put one on and decide later if you want to add a second one.

Hard to say if it will look "dumb" - to a large extent that is in the eye of the beholder. Will YOU be happy with it? If so, who cares about anybody else?

That's true, but I wonder if it'll just look unbalanced , or whatever with only one.
I guess it would look better with 2, even if I only use one. Uhh, but there are other ways to spend $215.
I guess I'm just looking for opinions.

For what it is worth, we chose to put 1 longer awning on ours. However, we found that it was cheaper and easier to have installed than 2 would be when we did it. Ours is to protect the dining and a seating area to aid in keeping cool in the hot sun.

Everyone has their own opinion of course, but it looks like you are already concerned about the appearance or you wouldn't ask.

I would think it would look like just putting chrome wheels on the front of your coach and steel wheels on the back. For the $215 thats pretty cheap peace of mind.

Max... I'm looking to install a window awning also. I wasn't concerned about just one though. I,m considering whether I should put on two individual awnings or one. The last moho I had I put on one 12-foot awning. In my existing situation my Pace Arrow has two different height windows. The bottom's of both windows are at the same height, but the one over the table is quite abit higher which means I don't have a lot of room above this window. Although I've seen some mounted on the same kind of moho. One thing it means is I'll need to pay extra for the longer window awning. Typically 32 to 37 inches compared to 25 to 27 inches which is the normal size.

One thing I do like about the long one piece awning is you can leave at least the one window open. The one that the opening is toward the center without worrying about rain blowing in or coming in at an angle from the end/s of the awning.

By the way, where are you looking for new awnings? I've looked at Camping World and also a couple of places on the internet, but not happy with any of the prices. They've really gone up in the last 2 to 3 years. A longer 37-inch 12-foot long Carefree Awning will cost me almost $500, and that's not even the top of the line Acrylic.

I've checked online prices at a few other places but altho some were just a little cheaper, they were'nt A&E awnings so the fabric probably would'nt match my main awning.
I was so indecisive that I canceled the order after I called them back and changed what I wanted 3 times.
First I ordered 1 , then I ordered 2, then I called back and changed it to just 1 long one to cover both windows.
The my wife pointed out how we already have to bend down to look out the windows, because of the cabinets, and if we had awnings they cover up even more of the window.
So I'm back where I was and can't decide if I want them or not.
If I had one window higher than the other, I think I would go with a separate awning for each window, but who the heck am I to give advice, I can't even make up my own mind for my window awnings. I figure it was better to cancel til I was sure what I wanted.
