Rarely ever used the awning in the past, always seemed like a hassle, especially because the awning legs no longer reached the ground because of the lift, and the hand crank was to short etc.
So I went with the Dometic 9500 power, floating awning. So simple now, push the button once and walk away. Also has a sensor built in so if your out biking and the wind picks up it will automatically retract. Seems like a great choice for the taller rigs.
