Awnings for your trailer...

Anybody know or have any experience with adding awnings/canopies to a 6X12 trailer?

I'd like one of those that fold up and stay there firmly...but when needed fall down nice and easy and cover a good amount of track...

Anyone have any links, or know people that do it locally?


Thanks in advance

They're expensive, but you can hit up PPL at 59 and BW 8 (SW side).

Why not get a good EZ Up (not the cheap ones) and attach it to your trailer? It'll save you a bunch of cabbage, and the upkeep is not nearly as important as it is with the awning.

+1 on the ez-up you can tie to your trailer and use either weights or buckets with concrete work well to hold down the other side.

or it could be sandwiched between two trailers for a party tent lol

the pick up one seems to do well...i havent had it up in a windy day, but i imagine it would take off if not staked or weighted down just like an ez-up would...that's my only worry with it...maybe a broken window or dented up truck.

i like it. it's not too tough to setup, but I've only done it a few times, so I hope for a vast improvement next time. it's also a lot larger than I expected it to be.

And they have them in several colors! Mine is red.

I worked as an RV tech for a few years, they're not that difficult, but you do need more than one person. and they are kind of expensive
