Awning Ideas / February 24, 2019 / Gertrude Fisher
An awning is an incredibly useful feature to have when spending great amount of time in the great outdoors. Who wants to sit inside the camper when all the fun is happening outside just because of a little sun? With camper awnings this is no longer a problem sit in the shad of the awning and enjoy the time with family and friends out in nature. There are a variety of camper awnings available depending on your camper s design and construction. However most designs of camper awnings will work for just about any camper. There are two main types of camper awnings. One is the retractable type which is fixed to the side of the camper. The other is the stand-alone awning which is made for light framed campers or other structures.
But an addition that can be a real difference maker both in attractiveness and functionality is the porch awning. An awning for the porch can give you protection against harsh weather (independent of the season) help you save on heating and cooling all while adding an attractive feature to your home. A well-chosen and well-placed awning can make your porch a desired place to gather while offering in many cases an all-seasons shelter against the elements. There is no end to the variety of colors and styles of awnings and awning material with which you can dress up the porch. The strongest awnings are built by and large with a primarily metal structure. Aluminum seems to be the common metal of choice in most cases. Lightweight and sturdy the best of them are built to last a lifetime.
Camper awnings not only provide shade from the sun or rain outside of the camper but when placed over the windows help keep the interior of the camper cool as well. When shopping around for camper awnings it is important to look at not only the quality of the awnings but also their ease of use. It is a good idea to go for the camper awnings that are made well but are also designed to be easily set up and installed. Remember you do not want to spend loads of time assembling and disassembling your camper awnings when there is plenty of fun to be had or it is time to get on the road and head home. In most cases camper awnings come in kits which require assembly. Any good camper awning manufacturer will include a detailed instruction manual for quick and easy set up and installation.
