Awning question

This may be a stupid question but I have a Bounder 2021 33C. I think the awning fabric is installed upside down,my wife thinks I am crazy. The top has the gray fade to white pattern the underside is all white. It makes more sense to me the pattern should be underneath so you can see it.

I believe your wife is correct (not sure how you want to handle that). Every awning I have seen is white on the bottom and some form of color on the top

Yep!

The whole rig looks better from a distance with the matching color scheme showing. Imo, a solid white would look too "FEMA-ish".

Looks like another correct wife!

Ok, I think the pattern would look better underneath, you see that all the time plus it would hide the dirt.the awning is so high you need to be 100 yards or more away to see the pattern. Also it would match the white roof. Not ready to say the wife is correct

Well, I'm not going to wade into whether you or your wife are correct, but, our awning fabric is the same as yours - white underneath and pattern on top - and both my wife and I think it should have been the other way around.

My 5er is the same way and while irritating I've developed the theory that when it's rolled up the color makes it match the side of the 5er. Another leg of my theory is white is more reflective and cool so it doesn't radiate heat as easily during the day and is brighter at night with lights on to give a little more light. Just theories.

I have the same RV and your wife is correct. The birds like to see a pretty pattern when flying over.
