Pusherman:

Great looking rig. Is that awning manual or automatic?

Bob -- thanx for the Avitar.

Jim -- thanx, and great meeting you and Sue this trip. Don't the solar screens look great?

Gary -- funny you should ask about the awnings. I specifically ordered this coach with both awnings manual. When the coach came in, my service manager at the dealership thanked me for ordering them. It seems that he has seen a lot of problems with the automatic awnings.

So far so good. We now have about 2500 miles on the rig, with no problems (knock on wood -- hope my door awning doesn't fall off like Route 66's!).

We're currently in Tampa (Lazy Days) with rebelsbeach and Route 66. Will be heading north Tuesday, but not too quick, until the snow melts up north. Expect to be home April 23rd.

Great meeting Bob and Dirk and Jim and Sue and Driver (at Perry)!

Sammie , those are special made by Wade Upholstry there at Lazy Days. I was there a couple of months ago for the custom made for my front bra Class A motorcoach.
Now we are leaving for lazy days and will also stay at Rally park next week to also get the Sunscreens on the front complete in black where you can see out but not inside and blocks 95 % of the heat.And both side of the driver and passenger window and also will do the door also all in black. They are held by top snaps and the botoom are laid over held by the weight . very nice setup , I almost had it done last time , but had to go to another park toward the keys. say JIMMY BUFFET area

Sammie,

George's comments are correct, with one modification. The top of the windshield is held on with 3 snaps, and there are 2 snaps on the bottom, one at each corner.

The side shades work the same way - 3 snaps along the top (I would have thought 2 was adequate) and 2 along the bottom.

They come in several colors. I chose black as I think they work the best, and also black looks great on my coach. Wade RV did a good job.

Pusherman:

I have the same windshield and side window covers for my rig...previous owner left them in a storage compartment. They really do block the heat. The black really looks good on your rig.

I am glad to hear that you can still get a new rig with the manual awnings. I may be old fashioned and practical, but I prefer those to the automatics.

Not to mention the $$ the manual awnings saved, which I put towards the full body paint!!

Thanks for all for the coach compliments.

And the fact that we (those of us smart chickens with manual awnings) can lower one end to allow rain run-off, lower the awning as low as we need so we can sit out in a light rain, and also get real shade. All this without the hassle of the gizmos that can and do break (how many people have I heard gripe about the pesky wind sensor??).

ditto....

Not to mention when they automatically retract in a gentle breeze...

I like the flexibility the manual awnings provide.

And as Dirk (Route 66) can attest to, the automatic front (over the door) awnings tend to jump off your coach when you least expect it.........
