extra awning


Recommended Posts

Wondering if anyone has taken the option of an extra awning that Oliver offers. Ann and I were considering it for possible cooling effect of a shaded trailer. We have a system here at the house where Ann will open the windows at night and close them in the morning. The cool night air and the house being somewhat shaded keeps the house very comfortable even in the heat of summer.


Maybe the extra shade of awnings on both sides would help do the same??


Any experience with the extra awning?

I've seen some pics of double awning Ollies, so they're out there. Shading the sunny side of my trailer really helps maintain the interior temps at a nice, comfortable place while boondocking (unless its not ridiculously hot outside). Right now, I'm in southern New Brunswick. The sun is warm the air is cool. With the awning out, the south side of the trailer shaded, and the air vent on the interior of the Wonder Egg is perfect. I've only the single awning, but think temp management with a double awning system would be grand. I'd say go for it!


Hmmmmmmmm . . . (thoughts for a possible trip to the factory for another awning installation)
